Quick t.v. recommendation: Masterpiece Mystery is showing "Death at Pemberley".  3 part series. I believe part 2 was shown 11/2/14. You can usually watch online at the PBS website.

I watched Part 1 yesterday and highly recommend it. It is a sequel to "Pride and Prejudice" BUT (and I had to rewind to find out if I heard correctly) it was written by current day author P.D. James. Many of you are familiar with her books. "Death at Pemberley" was published in 2011.

The story picks up six years after the marriage of Elizabeth and Darcy. They are preparing for a ball at their estate. The uninvited Wickham and Elizabeth's sister, Lydia, are on their way to crash the ball. Wickham has a friend traveling with them. They stop the carriage at the edge of the forest before they arrive, arguing. And a murder takes place.

Very intriguing, beautiful scenery and costumes.

I hope you can catch it.
