to:

* WhatTheHellHero: Emma's insult to Miss Bates, which shocks the entire outing party to speechlessness. Mr. Knightley rebukes her for this, saying severely, "That was badly done, Emma. ''Badly'' done!", reducing her to tears.

The BBC returned to ''Emma'' after nearly four decades, scripted by Sandy Welch (though they had planned a follow-up to ''Pride And Prejudice'' in 1996, cancelled when the other two versions were announced - a project which was also supposed to be scripted by Sandy Welch). Starred Romola Garai as Emma, Jonny Lee Miller as Mr. Knightley, and Michael Gambon as Mr. Woodhouse.

* IncrediblyLamePun:
-->Emma: ''Oh dear!''
-->Mr. Knightley: ''What's that?''
-->Emma: ''Oh, ah, something about the ah, deer...we need...for the venison stew.''



* [[spoiler:RelationshipCompression]]: Because of the expansion of the Harriet sections, the [[spoiler:Frank/Jane relationship is almost relegated to an afterthought - most of it happens completely offscreen, and some of Jane's actions are even given to other characters such as Miss Bates]].
* [[YoungerAndHipper Younger and Hipper]]: Jeremy Northam was only a few years younger than Mr. Knightley, but partly due to Gwyneth Paltrow's height, he was often perceived as "exactly the same age as Emma" (to quote Anthony Lane of The New Yorker).

* AdaptationDistillation: Though ''[=Emma=]'' is the second longest Austen novel and this telefilm is only an hour and 47 minutes long, Andrew Davies does a great job at keeping nearly all the relevant dialogue, scenes, and events. The resultant film is very faithful in event and general tone, but much, much faster paced. A few integrations of filmic techniques are seen in the use of Emma's imaginations being visualized, and the ending shades into PragmaticAdaptation with the combination of events into a Harvest Festival.

* [[YoungerAndHipper Younger and Hipper]]: Partly due to Emma's being cast at a more mature age, but Jonny Lee Miller was 34 at the time he played Mr. Knightley, and is young-looking.

to:

* [[YoungerAndHipper Younger UmbrellaOfTogetherness: Mr Weston shares his umbrella with Miss Taylor (future Mrs Weston) when it starts raining after the Sunday mass. In the novel, he met Emma and Hipper]]: Miss Taylor when they were walking and he gallantly borrowed two umbrellas for them from Farmer Mitchell's because it was drizzling.

The BBC adapted ''[=Emma=]'' as part of their general habit of doing JaneAusten novels every ten to twenty years. Starred Doran Godwin as Emma and John Carson as Mr. Knightley.

* AdaptationDyeJob: In the novel, Emma, in a rare physical description by JaneAusten, has "the true hazel eye." Gwyneth Paltrow, on the other hand, has definitely blue eyes, which were highlighted in promotional materials (such as the CD score cover).

Despite not having ''{{Pride and Prejudice}}'' level popularity, ''{{Emma}}'' has inspired not one or two, but [[AdaptationOverdosed four straight adaptations]] currently available, and quite a few slant ones. These adaptations tend to provoke rather violent flamewars, though it seems to have calmed down a bit since the 2009 miniseries was made.

ITV's telefilm starring Kate Beckinsale as Emma, MarkStrong as Mr. Knightley, and Olivia Williams as Jane Fairfax. The brainchild of the landmark 1995 BBC ''{{Pride and Prejudice}}'' team of writer Creator/AndrewDavies and producer Sue Birtwistle.

* AuthorAppeal: Screenwriter Creator/AndrewDavies tends to alter or adapt one older male character in his screeplays to a recognizable type of friendly, sociable, homebody fellow - in ''{{Emma}}'', it's Mr. Weston, who in the novel is something of a clueless social butterfly, but here pipes in with a few words on the joys of marriage and home life.

* AuthorAppeal: Screenwriter Sandy Welch follows a similar pattern to her previous literary adaptations in many ways. She keeps the four-episode structure from ''OurMutualFriend'', ''NorthAndSouth'', and ''Film/JaneEyre''. Additionally, like ''Film/JaneEyre'', she approaches Emma's story through her childhood.
