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!

Just finished watched it and I totally loved it! I knew it because I love period tv comfort shows and I love Jane Austen. And I love how in the English shows all the actors are so incredible good. How they do that? So, I had a great time watching it.

I loved the romance between Georgina and the attorney and between Darcy and Lizzie. Anna Maxwell is amazing. I don't understand why people didn't like her, She is perfect for her role. Matthew reminded me all the time of Kevin, his fight in the stairs with the colonel was like the one with Scotty for baby Daniel. And how he cries too. But that's okay. I think Kevin is very similar to Darcy too. A lot of roles in television are based in Darcy as a man stereotype.

Loved the landscapes and the photography too. Very good BBC production as always.

I think that indeed all actors did a good job. Yes, I think that I saw a lot of Kevin, but on Twitter we were wondering if it is perhaps not simply Matthew we see in those scenes, but because we've seen Kevin so long, we recognize Matthew's own mannerisms in Kevin and now in Darcy.

In general, I love BBC productions.

Hmmm, looking at the other comments and I thought this was curious. I never once was reminded of Kevin. I mean he looks like Matthew, because he IS Matthew, but Kevin didn't show up for me. There WAS a scene where he is overcome with emotion, but an emotional Kevin (with the exception of the affair) was always over the top - almost comedic. Darcys emotions seemed much more realistic. Kevin also is a little self centered, commanding attention and Darcy downplayed that a bit. I didn't see mannerisms, Kevin for me is sort of sexy. All bedroom eyes, licking lips, touchy feely.... That's no Darcy. Anyway, just thought I'd jump in the convo....
