Trivia
The aqua pelisse Emilia Fox (Clara Copperfield) wears to say goodbye to Davy was previously worn by Emilia Fox (Georgiana Darcy) at Ramsgate in Pride and Prejudice (1995). The same costume is also worn by Olivia Williams (Jane Fairfax) at Box Hill in Emma (1996), by Anna Madeley (Lucy Steele) at Fanny's London house in Sense & Sensibility (2008), and by Julie Cox (Annabella Milbanke) at the London party where she meets Byron in Byron (2003).

The straw bonnet with a pale blue ribbon worn by Maggie Smith (Betsey Trotwood) is the same costume worn by Kate Winslet (Marianne Dashwood) at Barton Cottage in Sense and Sensibility (1995), and by Judi Dench (Miss Matty) in Cranford (2007).

Daniel Radcliffe's first filmed project. In his first role, he would co-star with no less than six of his future co-stars of the "Harry Potter" film series: Maggie Smith (Minerva McGonagall), Zoë Wanamaker (Madame Hooch), Imelda Staunton (Dolores Umbridge), Dawn French (The Fat Lady in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)), Paul Whitehouse (Sir Cadogan in "Prisoner of Azkaban" (scenes deleted)), and Simpson McKendry (who played a Beauxbatons girl in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)).
