Web series brings favorite books to life

in Fiction by

We webheads love to watch our favorite books come to life. Long before there was vlogging, we got our fix from the silver screen. Swooning over Colin Firth and Matthew McFadyen as Mr. Darcy in Pride & Prejudice made us wildly impatient to see Pemberley Digital’s elusive William Darcy. Alicia Silverstone’s adorable Cher in Clueless was a reminder that we would eventually grow to love Joanna Sotomura’s Emma. And, confess it—thanks to numerous versions of A Christmas Carol, aren’t we secretly hoping to see a black-robed specter carrying a long-handled scythe visit Alice?

We knew that Alice couldn’t stay away from Andrew for too long on Classic Alice. Andrew decided he blew it with her, so it was adorkableness when Alice stopped in and asked him to help Cara and her decorate for Christmas.
