Jane Austen's best loved characters return to our screens six years after 'Pride and Prejudice' ends. It is the eve of the Darcys' annual Lady Anne ball at their magnificent Pemberley home. Darcy and Elizabeth are relaxing with their guests after supper when the festivities are brought to an abrupt halt. A scream calls them to the window and a hysterical Lydia Bennet tumbles out of a carriage screaming murder. What follows is the sombre discovery of a dead man in Pemberley woods, a brother accused of murder, and the beginning of a nightmare which will threaten to engulf Pemberley and all the Darcys hold dear.
- Death Comes to Pemberley: Series review by BP
Not a convincing or realistic period drama, and an insult to reference Jane Austin. Why are actors finding it so difficult to be convincing as Georgian/Victorian aristocrats these days. No posh accents, no regal airs, no forthright characters. Dull acting/weak plot = dull i'm afraid.
