Today we have some references from the online news services that navigate between the overcooked repetitions and the exotic:

1- Let's begin with an interview that appears today at Viet-Nam news, Manh Chuong, translator, talks about his work and tells us that :

I also translate English books into Vietnamese, including books like Charlotte Bronte’s Wuthering Heights (sic), but I find translating from Vietnamese into English much more challenging.

Yes, we believe he doesn't find interesting enough to translate to Vietnamese as he mixes (once again) our Brontës. Really, if you have doubts it's better to say Brontë's Wuthering Heights.

2.- A new press appearance of Lucy Ellman's controversial Doctors and Nurses novel. This time is The Oregonian that reviews it and, of course, mentions its Jane Eyrish substratum.

3.- And finally, the arrival in Darlington of the Ian Dickens' touring production of Wuthering Heights is the origin of this article on ICNewcastle, where Chris Rankin's Linton is highlighted:

Chris has been touring since March with the production which also stars Michelle Hardwick from television's The Royal as Cathy and Barny Clevely from Hollyoaks as Heathcliff.
The big cast also includes Tony Scannell, late of The Bill, and Robert Beck from Emmerdale.
"We've had a couple of weeks break," said Chris, "but Darlington will be our first week back.
"It's been going really well, so I'm looking forward to getting back out on stage again."
Chris has enjoyed playing the role of Edgar Linton, which is a very different part from his previous stage and film roles.
"It's a classic story, one I first read when I was about 16," he says. "Edgar's a great role for me - he goes through a range of emotions.
"He starts out quite pathetic, like a love-lorn puppy. Later he's quite a bitter person - so that's given me lots to work with."

By the way, as all you know perfectly, Mr Rankin will appear again in the new Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, where he will coincide with Imelda Staunton. Maybe this shooting is the reason why Imelda Staunton no longer appears credited on the Brontë AMC website? Who will be our Aunt Branwell in Angela Workman's film? The quest starts once again.
