5.0 out of 5 stars death comes to pemberley, 10 Feb. 2014
By 
This review is from: Death Comes to Pemberley & Pride and Prejudice Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
I am completed incredulous at the low review for this movie. It was charming, well executed and Matthew Rhys was up to his usual standard of amazing. Don't listen to hateful reviews from negative people with bad attitudes. Give this a chance. It will transport you to a new world, and is incredibly charming.

Whilst I respect your opinion of this DVD - and your right to express it - it does not help your case to denigrate those who happen to hold a contrary view. My objection to this DVD does not stem from a "negative attitude", nor were my remarks "hateful", but arise from a genuine unhappiness about the way "Pride & Prejudice" is being cynically exploited. Had Baroness James and the BBC come up with a Regency period "whodunit" which did not try and take advantage of Jane Austen's reputation there would have been no such objection; indeed, I may well have enjoyed it. I would not, however, expect to see the two films brought together as has been done with this DVD - any more than I would expect to see a Charles Dickens dramatization twinned with an Agatha Christie play.

I'm sorry, but I have to agree with the original review.
What is all this snobbery which surrounds Jane Austen?
No one dare touch her work or even adapt it in any way.
I really enjoyed `Death Comes to Pemberley' it is a fantastic piece of work, especially where acting and plot are concerned.
Personally, I am stating this as 'personal' opinion, Pride and Prejudice is the only Jane Austen novel that I think was worth raving about.
(please note that I am using words like: personal opinion, I think, etc)
In fact, dare are I be so bold as to say that she was the Barbara Cartland of her time?
Yes, she was good, but not so much so that it is a terrible act of sacrilege to put an excellent (my opinion again) drama, written by P.D.James and adapted for television by the BBC, together with her work.
I think both are excellent, Jane Austen's work and that of P.D.James and they certainly belong together.
My opinion again.
Now I can imagine that I will be inundated with complaints, but at least I did have the courage to say what I think, like the little girl in 'The Emperor's New Clothes'
