Death Comes to Pemberley

TV Mini-Series based on the book by P.D. James

It is October 1803, the eve of a ball hosted by Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy. On their way to the ball late that evening an argument breaks out between George Wickham and Captain Denny in the carriage, with Wickham's wife (and Elizabeth's sister), Lydia, also present. The two leave the carriage in anger and disappear into the woodland, where two gunshots are heard. Upon hearing the news, Darcy sends out a search party and Wickham is found distraught and hysterical holding Denny's body, blaming himself for his murder.

We get to see most of the major characters from Pride and Prejudice once again and see how they all weather through this murder trial and how it effects their lives.
