BBC 1 Trailers for ‘Death Comes to Pemberley’

 

The TV adaptation of P.D. James’ “Death Comes to Pemberley” has aired already in Great Britain (over the Christmas holiday, no less). While we await its premier on PBS, here are YouTube links to four BBC 1 trailers for the miniseries. As we reviewed the book at our June 2013 luncheon, it will be interesting to see how James’ sequel to Pride and Prejudice fares as a movie adaptation.

Here are the trailers:

Conclusions from watching the trailers:

  1. Superb production values—no surprise there.
  2. Every miniseries needs a Lydia.

Altogether, there are eight BBC clips for “Death Comes to Pemberley”.  However, all may not be available for viewing here in the U.S.:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01mqkm5/clips.
