Davies has said that Creator/JaneAusten is his favorite author, and has adapted four of her six novels for television, starting with ''Series/PrideAndPrejudice'' for the BBC in 1995, riding the immense wave of popularity into a much shorter and more controversial ITV ''Film/{{Emma}}'' the next year, then returning to Austen in 2007 and 2008 with ITV's ''Film/NorthangerAbbey'' and the BBC's ''Series/SenseAndSensibility'', respectively. Other famous adaptations include two of Creator/GeorgeEliot's novels, ''Literature/{{Middlemarch}}'' (1994) and ''Literature/DanielDeronda'' (2002), two landmark eight-hour Creator/CharlesDickens half-hour soap-opera style serials, ''Series/BleakHouse'' (2005) and ''Series/LittleDorrit'' (2008), and two Creator/AnthonyTrollope novels, ''Literature/TheWayWeLiveNow'' (2001) and ''HeKnewHeWasRight'' (2004).

* SexySoakedShirt: His most famous work, the 1995 ''Series/PrideAndPrejudice'', features Colin Firth swimming in a lake and then walking about in a sopping white shirt. Later, his 2008 adaptation of ''Series/SenseAndSensibility'' does the same, though to significantly less successful effect. Oddly enough, Davies claims that in both cases he was intending actual nudity, and the addition of the shirt was a fortuitous coincidence.

His work in Hollywood is a mixed bag -- he enjoys the larger sums of money involved, but dislikes the lack of power the screenwriter has. Though the ''Literature/BridgetJones'' films are relatively well-liked, he was vocal about the problematic process of adapting ''Literature/BridesheadRevisited'', and was not the final writer on that project. It remains to be seen whether his work on the upcoming ''Film/TheThreeMusketeers2011'' will fall into the former or latter category.
