Death Comes To Pemberley
3 x 60 serial, written by Juliette Towhidi (Calendar Girls) and made by Origin Pictures for BBC One.
Adapted from P.D James' international bestselling novel in this 200th anniversary year of the first publication of 'Pride & Prejudice', P.D James' remarkably inventive homage to Austen brings the much-loved world to life in a dazzling and original way. Set six years after 'Pride & Prejudice' ends and centering on Austen's best-known characters, Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy, the three-parter combines classic period drama with a highly suspenseful and brilliantly crafted murder mystery plot.
The executive producers for Origin Pictures are David Thompson and Ed Rubin. The executive producer for the BBC is Polly Hill.Obviously there's no word on casting yet, so... let's speculate! Who'd you enjoy seeing in the iconic roles of Lizzie and Darcy? Or perhaps even Jane and Bingley? My only complaint is that in re-visiting the Darcy's, we're only going to be invited into their world for a mere three hours, still, I won't complain too loudly! This promises to be way too much fun.
