Question of the week: Darcy or Thornton?

There’s a reason for pitting these two men against each other. Essentially, because P&P and N&S are similar in many ways. Just because a lot of you are fans of Richard Armitage and thus biased toward Mr. Thornton… well, it doesn’t mean everyone is! Or does it? Read And Find Out! 😀

Okay, yeah, so I still haven’t got over the fact that Darcy beat Rochester in the previous poll (14 vs 7). Y’all are just WRONG on that one. *sniff* 😛 No, really. Darcy might’ve been what got me into costume dramas, but Rochester and Thornton are what’s keeping me hooked. And a bunch of others too, admittedly, but I need to get to bed and if I were to list them all, I’d be up all night!

Traxy Thornfield

A Swedish introvert residing in Robin Hood Country (Nottingham, UK) with a husband and two cats. She's an eager participant in tabletop and play-by-post roleplaying, woodworking, photography and European travel, when there's not a plague on. Might get a novel out one of these days, if she doesn't get too distracted along the way.

  1. Before Thornton I would have said Darcy all the way, but now that I have experienced the TDHCMO give me Thornton or give me nothing at all!

  2. Richard Armitage contributed to what I’m going to say, but I also re-read both novels to decide if it was only because of his role in BBC N&S. And…no…it wasn’t only for that reason. I analyzed the similarities and the differences between the two characters in detail and the differences won me. Mr Thornton is my favourite now.

  3. I agree. I would have said Darcy all the way, but then I fell in love with Mr. Rochester and Darcy was knocked off the #1 spot. Then Thornton came along and while he is a bit of a mummy’s boy (it has to be said), I still prefer him over Darcy. And once Darcy was knocked off the top spot, he’s a lot easier to move down the ranks! Agnes Grey’s Mr. Weston is wonderful… Emma’s Mr. Knightley isn’t shabby and – I really need to read more Jane Austen!

    phylly3: TDHCMO? 🙂

  4. Darcy was but Thornton IS. unfortunately now i am unable to to get the same S’ HIGH from any other period movie.

    (there should be a warning for this movie – HAS – highly addictive substance…help!)
