Six years after Pride and Prejudice, the former Miss Elizabeth Bennet is now Mrs Darcy and chatelaine of her husband’s magnificent family seat, Pemberley. The couple have a small son and are deeply locked in connubial bliss, if their public displays of affection are anything to go by.
Of course this is PD James’s bestselling murder-mystery P&P sequel, brought to vibrant life in a treat of a three-part story, with Anna Maxwell Martin and Matthew Rhys perfectly cast as Lizzie and Darcy. They’re a sexy pairing and might even (heresy warning!) dispel any memories, at least for three hours, of Jennifer Ehle and Colin “Do You Think I’m Sexy in My Wet Shirt?” Firth.
Life at Pemberley is good as Lizzie rallies her staff to prepare for a sumptuous ball that’s to be the talk of the neighbourhood. But gatecrashers cast a deadly shadow…
Anna Maxwell Martin, Matthew Rhys and Jenna Coleman star in this sequel to Pride and Prejudice, adapted from the best-selling novel by PD James, which brings Jane Austen's world back to life in a highly original way - with a murder mystery plot at its centre. The drama picks up six years on from the marriage of Elizabeth and Darcy, as the couple prepare for the lavish annual ball at their magnificent Pemberley home. However, the unannounced arrival of Elizabeth's wayward sister Lydia brings the event to an abrupt halt when she stumbles in screaming that her husband, Wickham, has been murdered. Darcy leads a search party out to the woodlands and finds a blood-soaked corpse - but it's not the body they were expecting to find. Trevor Eve, Rebecca Front, James Fleet and Matthew Goode co-star.
