One of the highlights of this year’s Christmas schedule is BBC One’s three part murder mystery, Death Comes To Pemberley based on the characters of P.D James’ bestselling novel Pride and Prejudice.

Elizabeth (Anna Maxwell Martin) and Darcy (Matthew Rhys), now six years married and with two young sons, are preparing for the lavish annual ball at their magnificent Pemberley home. The unannounced arrival of Elizabeth’s wayward sister Lydia, however, brings an abrupt and shocking halt to proceedings when she discovers a murder.

Lydia is played by Doctor Who‘s Jenna Coleman with Matthew Goode as George Wickham.

Death Comes To Pemberley airs on Boxing Day at 8.15pm on BBC One.
