Added DiffLines:

* ImagineSpot: Emma's rather overwrought picture of the scene when Miss Bates explains how Mr. Dixon saved Jane from falling off a cliff. She does the same thing later after Frank rescues Harriet.

Added DiffLines:

* ForeheadTouching: Emma and Knightly, after all the mutual misunderstandings are cleared up and she accepts his proposal.


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoDifferent: The series draws a line between Miss Bates being her mother's caregiver to Emma and her father after they visit Hartfield--Emma is clearly a little disturbed at the parallel when she sees it.

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

* DawsonCasting: Humorously, not for Emma herself (though Godwin does appear more mature than her 22 years), but John Carson was 45, eight years older than Mr. Knightley's 37 (and it shows).

* FakeBrit: Paltrow, though her accent is generally fairly solid, has some fairly glaring moments of accent slippage.



* DawsonCasting: Romola Garai was 26, five years older than Emma's 21 (and a decade older than Emma at 16, in the prologue of the film).

* 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 Miss Taylor when they were walking and he gallantly borrowed two umbrellas for them from Farmer Mitchell's because it was drizzling.

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.
