Adapted from PD James' internationally bestselling novel, this gripping and suspenseful serial marks the 200th anniversary year of the first publication of Pride and Prejudice. PD James's remarkably inventive homage to Austen brings her much-loved world to life in a dazzling and original way with Austens best-known characters Elizabeth, Darcy and Wickham, at its heart.

Now six years married and with a young son, the Darcys are preparing a lavish annual ball at their magnificent home, Pemberley. The unannounced arrival of Elizabeths wayward sister Lydia brings an abrupt 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 is not Wickham but his travelling companion, suspicions are aroused. The shocking events of the evening have shattered the peace throughout Pemberley, and as the murder investigation ensues, a mysterious web of secrets and deceit will threaten all that the Darcys hold dear.

Starring Matthew Rhys (The Americans, Brothers and Sisters), Anna Maxwell Martin (The Bletchley Circle, South Riding), Matthew Goode (Dancing on the Edge, Birdsong), Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who) and Trevor Eve (Waking the Dead, Kidnap and Ransom). The serial has been adapted for television by Juliette Towhidi (Calendar Girls) and directed by BAFTA awardwinner Daniel Percival (Strikeback, Place Of Execution).
