Episode 19 - Death Comes to Pemberley
Sammi and Beau take a brief step back into the regency to watch the film adaptation of PD James' Death Comes to Pemberley. A straightforward "Elizabeth Darcy Murder Mystery" was too much to hope for, and instead we get a dour miniseries with a convoluted plot and characters that don't quite fit the Austen mold. We found ourselves unequal to caring about such questions as "Who killed Captain Denny?" and "Who is that hissing woman in the woods?" because we were so wrapped up in figuring out WHY Colonel Fitzwilliam was so aggro and why Darcy was ALWAYS SHOUTING. Death Comes To Pemberley was directed by Daniel Percival and stars Anna Maxwell Martin, Matthew Rhys, Matthew Goode and Jenna Coleman
