Jonny Lee Miller,
Tom Ward, who plays Colonel Fitzwilliam in all three episodes of Death Comes to Pemberly, also had a minor role in the 1995 series, episode #2 playing the part of Lt. Chamberlayne. Tom had a single line apologizing for Lydia's intrusion during a conversation between Elizabeth Bennett and Capt. Denny during the ball at Netherfield. He said, "Forgive the intrusion, Madame. I would dance with both your sisters at once it..." before Lydia and Kitty drag both men to the dance floor. See more »
If you are like me and enjoy your Pride and Prejudice, and a good murder plot, then you would love this series! The choice of the victim is good, but the one of the suspect is very smart, and I also love the way it delves into the soft points of the characters - Darcy's possible regret of marrying Elisabeth, or her not understanding of duty. I was fascinated by the re-creation of an inquest and trial from that period (who knew that judges were allowed to drink brandy during the trial?) and particularly by the depiction of the characters. Elisabeth in particular is just like I would have imagined, she is the same spirited outspoken person we know and love, while Darcy is more brooding, quiet and responsible (while I may have chosen other actors in terms of appearance, I think they portray the characters very well as reactions). I also enjoyed the way Lady de Bourgh is portrayed, and remarkably, I even grew a different understanding of Wickam!All in all, definitively worth to watch by P&P wit a murder twist lovers!
