The BBC mini-series was a classic example of how NOT to televise a book

The insufferable dullness of huge stretches of the book was reproduced in long, long cut-away shots showing the amazing sets, but with no dialogue nor action, while the scheming wiles of Steerpike were all but opaque due to the awful diction of Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Celia Imrie deserved a BAFTA for her Gertrude though - the only reason I kept watching it
