Death Comes to Pemberley Trailer: What Do You Think?

This adaptation of P.D. James's mysterious take on Austen, Death Comes to Pemberley, will air in the U.K. on Christmas Day this year, and in the U.S. sometime in 2014. Here's what happens; are you intrigued?

Elizabeth and Darcy, now six years married and with two young sons, are preparing for the lavish annual ball at their magnificent Pemberley home. The unannounced arrival of Elizabeths wayward sister Lydia, however, brings an abrupt and shocking halt to proceedings when she stumbles out of her chaise screaming that her husband Wickham has been murdered.

Darcy leads a search party out to the woodlands, and when they discover the blood-smeared corpse, not of Wickham, but his traveling companion, suspicion is at once aroused. The dramatic and unnerving events of the evening have shattered the peace, both of the Darcys and of Pemberley, and as the family becomes caught up in the ensuing murder investigation, a mysterious web of secrets and deceit will threaten all that the Darcys hold dear.

Looks like an intriguing continuation to one of my all time favorite stories. Can't wait till it is available in the U.S.

@Myretta I was going to ask if anyone had read and liked the book but you already answered. I will say the trailer is beautiful.

I don't wanna know. I read the book, or tried to, but found it tonally (?) off, almost like an off key note that hurt my ears.

I also read the book -- and was disappointed. I like P.D. James but her strengths aren't Austenian.
