Christina Cole in Emma and Maggie Hill

Thanks to friend Anna for letting me know that Christina Cole is playing Mrs Elton in the new BBC version of Jane Austen's Emma. This will be a return to the world of Jane Austen for Christina as she played Caroline Bingley in last year's Lost in Austen.

Christina is also apparently playing the lead role in a US pilot called Maggie Hill. I read that it's about a surgeon with schizophrenia.

Sounds like a barrel of laughs.
