Beautiful new ‘Sanditon’ companion book goes behind the scenes

A new book gives fans an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of Sanditon.

Based on Jane Austen’s unfinished final novel, the period drama series stars Theo James (Downton Abbey), Kris Marshall (Death in Paradise) and Anne Reid (Last Tango in Halifax).

Sanditon premiered in the UK last autumn and the Season 1 finale aired in the US last month.

The World of Sanditon: The Official Companion is available to buy on Amazon here.

An audiobook version of the book is also available.

Jane Austen’s original 11-chapter manuscript was written only months before her death in 1817.

The story was brought to life on television by Emmy and BAFTA Award winning screenwriter Andrew Davies (Pride & PrejudiceLes Misérables).

The World of Sanditon: The Official Companion is the official companion to the TV series.

Featuring foreword by writer Andrew Davies, the stunning hardcover book contains “everything a fan could want to know.”

The official synopsis reads: “It explores the world Austen created, along with fascinating insights about the period and the real-life heartbreak behind her final story. And it offers location guides, behind the scenes details, and interviews with the cast, alongside beautiful illustrations and set photography.”

ITV announced earlier this year that they’re not renewing Sanditon, but a second season could still happen!

The complete first season is out now on DVD and Blu-ray.

The World of Sanditon: The Official Companion is available on Amazon.
