DEATH COMES TO PEMBERLEY
It is the eve of the Darcys’ annual Lady Anne ball at their magnificent Pemberley home, and Elizabeth’s fifth ball as lady of the house. Darcy and Elizabeth are relaxing with their guests after supper when the festivities are brought to an abrupt halt. A scream calls them to the window and a hysterical Lydia Bennet tumbles out of a carriage screaming murder. What follows is the sombre discovery of a dead man in Pemberley woods, a brother accused of murder, and the beginning of a nightmare which will threaten to engulf Pemberley and all the Darcy's hold dear. BBC’s new drama is based on P.D. James’ follow-up to Pride and Prejudice.
