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 »

Not Pride and Prejudice but Okay Mystery
14 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

Being a fan of PD James and Jane Austin I was looking forward to watching this show. It took a while to get past Elizabeth being totally out of character...at least from the stand point of Pride and Prejudice 1995 version. They dressed her down and made her look kind of dowdy and act miserable through most of the show. They didn't change the character of Darcy much--as my mother said, it looks like he has a toothache through most of the show. The colonel was also changed to be a rather secretive fellow, unlike his easy going character in P&P. The other characters seemed to mesh well with their original characters. If you have never seen Pride and Prejudice (1995 version) then you won't be disappointed. It is a good little English mystery.
