Regency romance, full of pace, style, wit and passion. Filmed in the stately homes and country mansions of old England, with a first-rate production team and a cast of Britain's finest character actors, this really is unmissable. Starring Colin Firth, Jennifer Ehle, Allison Steadman and Julia Sawalha
In spite of the quality of the more recent Keira Knightley-starring big-screen interpretation, its the mid-90s BBC mini-series of Pride and Prejudice thats still regarding by many as the definitive telling of Jane Austens classic.
Featuring, as many swooning admirers will already know, Colin Firth in a career-topping performance as Mr Darcy, Pride and Prejudice is the timeless tale of seemingly impossible romance. On one hand, theres the wealthy, single Mr Darcy, and on the other is Elizabeth, a woman Darcy believes is beneath him. Across six sumptuous hours of this classic mini-series, their story then slowly bubbles, aided by some excellent supporting performances. Nods must go to the likes of Jennifer Ehle, Susannah Harker, Anna Chancellor and Julia Sawalha, to highlight but a handful.
Its not just in front of the camera where Pride and Prejudice scores, though. The production values are absolutely outstanding, with this really a watermark for BBC costume drama production. Add in Simon Langtons diligent direction, and this is one of those rare occasions where everything seemingly effortlessly falls into place, with outstanding end results.
Over ten years since it was first broadcast, the particular take on Pride and Prejudice remains as vital, moving and compelling as it was first time round. And if its ever topped, its going to take something really, really special to do it --Jon Foster

The two main actors Collin firth who plays Mr Darcy & Jennifer Ehle who played Elizabeth Bennet are the personification of the characters Jane Austin created adding a movie star quality to the series along with many other notable performances.
The sets, the costumes, the musical score, the story add to this magical world in literately history, arguably this is the best adaption of a pride & prejudice and Collin firths stand out role that was one of the main reasons he was cast in Bridget jones dairy as a modern day Mr Darcy.
Lovers of Jane Austin will find this a classic tale well deserved of praise both for the cast and the production values by the BBC.
Delivery was flawless as usual; package was dreadful as usual....
....And probably ruined the item - I finally got to (re-)watch it but, after taking the disc out one time, it does not play the disc which gets ejected.
I also liked the way Darcy - played superbly by Colin Firth by the way! - was given more attention than just appearing occasionally at the scene. This way we were more familiar with his character, actions and his feelings for Elizabeth. As a result the surprise element is not so significant of course, but it did not lessen the merits of the production.
Costumes, music, buildings and scenery were absolutely fantastic. They were not simply objects and background, they also disclosed a lot of useful information about the characters (e.g.: Darcy is wealthy, but has taste, lady Catherine is wealthy and pompous, Elizabeth is not very rich, but is natural and unpretentious...).
The actors were also very good, although I have to admit that I thought Jennifer Ehle miscast as Elizabeth Bennet: she seemed too experienced, too knowing for a twenty-odd something-year-old girl. At times she was simply impertinent instead of daring and she just SMIRKED instead of smiling playfully. Thus Darcy appeared a far more positive character to me right from the start despite his aloof behaviour. Elizabeth Garvie in the '79 version as Elizabeth was absolutely fantastic.
And there was another miscast character: Wickham. He was just too slimy. I mean, he IS slimy all right, but in the beginning Elizabeth and the audience shouldn't know that. He should appear as a much more attractive person compared to Darcy. Adrian Lukis couldn't do that, he was a bit repulsive right from the start. So I was left with the feeling "how could Lizzy fall for this guy's charm even for a second?!" You aren't supposed to feel that from the start, you shouldn't be thinking, even as a spectator, that Elizabeth must be really foolish to like this guy instead of the charismatic and sexy Darcy!
All in all, if you love the book, you are going to like this adaptation very much.
