Jonny Lee Miller,
The daughter of a country doctor copes with an unwanted stepmother, an impetuous stepsister, burdensome secrets, the town gossips, and the tug on her own heartstrings for a man who thinks of her only as a friend.
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 »
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.
