Death Comes to Pemberley Sneak Peek: A Murderous Twist on Jane Austen

Death Comes to Pemberly Video

If there isn’t enough bloodshed in Pride and Prejudice for your taste, Death Comes to Pemberley (premiering this Sunday on Masterpiece on PBS) has murder, a hysterical Bennet (played by Doctor Who‘s Jenna Coleman) and Matthew Rhys (The Americans) as the dashing Mr. Darcy.

Adapted from P.D. James’ novel, the miniseries picks up after the events of the Jane Austen classic, when Pemberley is rocked by a whodunit. In TVLine’s exclusive first look, Lydia Bennet (Coleman) arrives at the estate, screaming bloody murder, and a slap is the only thing capable of calming her down. (Naturally, the excitable Mrs. Bennet is also overcome with hysteria by association.)

Meanwhile, Lydia’s husband — and Darcy’s ex-pal — George Wickham (The Good Wife‘s Matthew Goode) is suspect No. 1. “Am I never to get that man out of my life?” Darcy exclaims.
