Writing for The Guardian, Kathryn Flett wrote of the adaptation “if you didn't mind your Austen both mucked about with and a little bit mucky—then it was all good fun, though I think Billie [Piper] may have avoided delving too deeply into the source material in favour of renting the 1996 adaptation of Emma, so uncannily like Gwyneth doing British did she sound.”
