This review is from: Death Comes to Pemberley [DVD] (DVD)
This was the highlight of the Christmas television schedule for me. I'd been looking forward to it ever since I found out they were making an adaptation. I read the book last year and to be honest, wasn't overly impressed with it. However, I think that the screenwriters of this production took the best of it and made something wonderful. I thought all the actors were very good and made us believe in their individual predicaments, and made it easy to suspend our disbelief and just enjoy the production. The cinematography featuring Chatsworth and the Derbyshire countryside was fabulous, making the property itself almost a character in its own right, which it is to a large extent.
I thoroughly enjoyed the series and, like others, feel it is a shame that the BBC seems to have stopped releasing items on Blu-ray as that would be preferable to the DVD but as there is no other option, I am waiting patiently for the DVD to be released and will look forward to watching the series again in one fell swoop. Well done BBC. More of this ilk please!
