Barbara Leigh-Hunt and Judi Dench

I can never get over the fact that Lady Catherine de Bourgh …

… married Lionel and Jean in As Time Goes By

(and yes, I know Judi went on to play Lady Catherine de Bourgh in that godawful version I won’t mention)

… and that Barbara Leigh-Hunt is godmother to Judi Dench and Michael Williams’ daughter, Finty …

… who looks exactly like Michael, I never realised!

Can you tell I am totally gearing up to rewatch A Fine Romance?

So much fangirl flail.
