Oh Mr Darcy!

22 Mar

Maybe not the Mr Darcy you were thinking of though.

Hit UK show The Only Way Is Essex (think The Hills with Estuary accents and more fake tan and bling) is back on our screens and has introduced a new character: Mr Darcy the micro-pig, who I can’t help but love for the name alone. In fact, I’m thinking of getting a pet *just* so I can call it Lady Catherine.

Has anyone else out there named a pet (or cuddly toy perhaps?) after their favourite period drama star or character?

    They’re not period drama names – but my mum is obsessed witb Richard III. our first dog was called Bosworth, after the battle of Bosworth, the second Tewkesbury, after the Battle of Tewkesbury – and the third Lovell, after Richard III’s right hand man.
    If I get a dog, I’d like to call it Mr Bingley, after MY favourite period man.
