Literature

  • Jane Gordon in Snuff is the Discworld version of Austen, growing up in a family not a million miles away from the Bennets. She's writing a novel about "the complexities of personal relationships", until a conversation with Vimes ("If it was me, I'd have a few bodies falling out of wardrobes") has her rework it into a crime thriller under the title Pride and Extreme Prejudice.

  • She's Kristine Kochanski's favourite author on Red Dwarf. The episode "Beyond a Joke" has a sequence of her dragging the boys into a Pride and Prejudice VR game.
  • Clara from Doctor Who chiefly remembers Jane as apparently a ''phenomenal'' kisser.
  • Jane Austen is mentioned extensively in the Regency episode of The Supersizers Eat ("The Supersizers Go Regency"). Sue plays Giles' sister without fortune of her own who must rely only on her natural charms and accomplishments to secure a husband before she is left on the shelf.
