Six years after Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy have prevailed over pride, prejudice, the caddish Mr. Wickam and the frivolous Mrs. Bennet, a coach races up to Pemberley, Darcy's palatial estate, with an hysterical Lydia shrieking, "Murder!" So continues Jane Austen's timeless classic, Pride and Prejudice, in Death Comes to Pemberley, a star-studded adaptation of crime-writer P.D. James' bestselling whodunit.
On the eve of Pemberley's annual ball, new and beloved iconic characters of Pride and Prejudice assemble to bask in the warm glow of the Darcy's sumptuous estate. But following Lydia's frantic arrival and an investigation into Pemberley's woods, a nightmare ensues and a scandal mounts, threatening Pemberley and all the Darcys hold dear.
With lavish locations, handsome parklands, and beloved, iconic characters, Death Comes to Pemberley marries the splendor and emotion of period drama with the intrigue of murder mystery. Starring Anna Maxwell Martin as quick-witted Elizabeth Darcy, Matthew Rhys as the principled Mr. Darcy, Matthew Goode as the roguish Wickham, and Jenna Coleman as coquettish minx Lydia, Death Comes to Pemberley comes to Masterpiece Mystery! in two thrilling episodes, Sundays, Oct. 26 and Nov. 2, 2014 at 8 pm on WILL-TV.
