Did anyone see the tweet about a girl who was on a flight to Belfast, not long after P&P was released. When they arrived she was having difficulty getting her coat from the overhead locker. This "crazily tall guy" said "let me" and reached up and got said coat for her. She just gaped as Matthew had been sitting behind her all the time. He gestured for her to go ahead and she thought "I'm walking down the aisle with Mr Darcy!".

If the weather turns out sunshiny and springy then it would be o.k. I guess! ;-)

Good gracious she is nearly 10 years older than him! She appeared on UD but I can't for the life of me remember who "Mrs Fuller" was (IMDB) as I only watched the 1st episode.
