Death Comes to Pemberley, a three part adaptation of P.D. James’ homage to Jane Austen produced by Origin Pictures with investment from Screen Yorkshire’s Yorkshire Content Fund, premiered at Christmas 2013 on BBC One. Coinciding with the 200th anniversary of the much loved novel that inspired it, Death Comes To Pemberley is set six years after Pride and Prejudice ends and centres on Austen’s best-known characters, Elizabeth Bennet (played by Anna Maxwell Martin) and Mr Darcy (played by Matthew Rhys), as they are plunged into a murder investigation.
Production offices for Death Comes to Pemberley were based at Prime Studios on Kirkstall Road, Leeds. Other filming locations include Harewood House, Castle Howard, York Minster, St Williams College, Chatsworth House, York City Centre and Beverley Guildhall.
