Death Comes to Pemberley is a miniseries with Trevor Eve, Matthew Rhys, and Anna Maxwell Martin. It covers a mystery surrounding Pemberley, the famous home of the Darcy’s from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. It is filled with an extremely talented cast, an exciting storyline, and some romance. The nice thing about it is that it is overall clean; there is kissing, an affair that is not shown, and one scene in episode three that is obviously coming and easily skipped, but it’s one of the better shows out there. There are only three episodes, but they still did a good job.
I’m not going to get into the storyline; it’s worth watching and discovering as you go along. It’s pretty true to the characters of Jane Austen from what I know and what I’ve heard (I have read some of Pride and Prejudice, but I never finished it…). I’d recommend it to friends and family.

PD James took a lot of adverse criticism for the book, but I rather enjoyed it. I thought she captured Austen’s mood and style rather well. I wasn’t so fond of the TV film.

I’ll have to check the book out! I haven’t read it yet, but I did enjoy the movie (but that may change if I read the book 🙂).
