I don't know some of these but I'll guess my best. :)
1) No clue?!?!?!?!
2) Emma
3) Wives and Daughters
4) Anne of Green Gables
5) Northanger Abbey?
6) ?
7) Jane Eyre
8) The Importance of Being Ernest?
9) Little Women
10) ?
11) Jeeves and Wooster? It sounds like Jeeves and Wooster but I don't actually know. :(
12) ?
13) Christie? I'm not sure about this... I've only read the book. :(
14) The Scarlet Pimpernel
15) I've only heard of this show but it's something about Paradise I think?
I feel like I cheated because I answered some of these this morning and then didn't actually comment because I wanted to think about them some more. Then on the way to church I was listening to the audiobook of Little Women so got that one, and then watched The Importance of Being Ernest this evening, which is what I think eight is... not sure.
Anyways, thanks for doing it. It was fun. :)

7. Actually, I don't think Miss Havisham burns the house down, so it can't be ‘Great Expectations’. One of my siblings guessed ‘Jane Eyre’ which I think is the answer. It could also be ‘Ivanhoe’.
