Death comes to Pemberley - part 3

Oh my God, what a soap-soup that was and how convenient a solution!

Best moment: OMG!!!  Lady Catherine de Bough played by Penelope Keith! What a load of fun that was!
"I told him that he needed to decide whether to live or die and then get on with it. With as little possible inconvenience to others...." Ha!!!
I want a 'heated debate' between her and Violet Crawley from Downton Abbey! Slaughter by sharp tongues and even sharper wits! :D

I was amazed by Trevor Eve and Tom Ward. I loved the fight that the last one had with Darcy in the coach and up the stairs. Please, dear Lord Roxton, settle down, dear chap, you were fighting a losing war over Georgiana anyway.

The entire drama in the last minutes of Wickham's hanging was a bad joke. All very exciting, ofcourse, but is there ANYONE who actually expected him to hang?

Lydia.... wow... talk about living in a state of delusion. I did momentarily feel for her. Luckily it was quickly over.

There was a love scene between Darcy and Lizzie. Sweet. Unnecessary, but sweet. Unless it was supposed to have the end-result, but that would be too fast for her to know about.

And .. ah... Mr Darcy. His emotions all over the place... that's how I like my Matthew. Darcy's anger, his apology towards Georgiana and Lizzie, his care for Wickham, his pride at the trial... Love that man....

But what a soap!

I was totally lost on all this; didn't watch P&P and so knew nothing of each character's background...and the flitting from past to present helped matters not one bit. Though written by different authors, it's definitely a sequel and doesn't stand alone (well that's my opinion anyway).

Darcy. Hmm! Got to love Matthew in it but he didn't have much of a role: the Colonel was far more interesting for me; Lizzie was boring; Lydia was OTT; Jane was...well what was she? IDK! Maybe I'm just not in to period romance stories...or period dramas for that matter - cannot be doing Downton AT ALL, but this was/is not something that I can see myself watching repeatedly (though I won't be deleting it off my HDD player...just yet!)

no, it wasn't a stand-alone and you won't understand the signifance of certain people/betrayals/events if you don't have the bigger picture of what happened in P&P.

To me the most interesting person was the one played by Trevor Eve and not so much Darcy, though Matthew did a good job and it was interesting to see him play a character like that. But I prefer the more multi-layered characters.
