Death Comes To Pemberley - Trailer & Photos!

Remember a back in June when I posted the news about BBC adapting P.D. James's Death Comes To Pemberley? Well, there's been a lot of new photos and publicity for the BBC's new production of Death Comes To Pemberley that have been released recently.

And there's a trailer!

My suggestion? Watch it a couple times, then familiarize yourself with the cast list and photos before watching it again, you get a few extra tidbits about what to expect! :)

Death Comes To Pemberley (DCTP) will be aired on the BBC in three episodes from December 26-28. No news yet, but we might see it come to the USA sooner or later, maybe even this next year. (The new Downton Abbey season airs from January to February on Masterpiece Theatre so I'm really hoping that DCTP will come after that even as part of Masterpiece Mystery, and then there's the new Poirot films!) 

Updated Cast List:
Anna Maxwell Martin as Elizabeth Darcy
Matthew Rhys as Fitzwilliam Darcy
Matthew Goode as George Wickham
Jenna Coleman as Lydia Wickham
Eleanor Tomlinson as Georgiana Darcy
James Fleet as Mr. Bennett
Rebecca Front as Mrs. Bennett
Penelope Keith as Lady Catherine de Bourgh (she's going to be so good!)
Trevor Eve as Sir Selwyn Hardcastle
Tom Ward as Colonel Fitzwilliam
James Norton as Mr. Alveston
Philip Martin Brown as Mr. Bidwell
Nichola Burley as Louisa Bidwell

And now as promised, lots and lots of photos! :)

(Behind The Scenes!)

The costumes and scenery are all quite lovely! Some of the costumes look like they might have been used in Sense & Sensibility (2008) or Emma (2009), among others. Overall I'm liking the whole look of the miniseries and am really looking forward to this first filmed version of a Pride and Prejudice sequel!!! It can at least be as fun as The Mystery of Edwin Drood (2012) and that was good, if a bit scary at times.
I'm loving have all of these great British actors in a Jane Austen-ish film! Penelope Keith is going to make an amazing Lady Catherine! I wonder they never cast her in the role before! Jenna Coleman is so cute dressed up as Lydia! Not sure about the blond girl who plays Georgiana, sort of odd looking. I'm actually really liking Matthew Rhys as Darcy, at least his looks, how he acts might be more dark than we'd like. Anna Maxwell Martin isn't my first choice for Lizzy but she does look lovely in the costumes!

Based on the trailer do you want to see this film?

What do you think of the costumes and settings?
