Death Comes to Pemberley

Standard

You may have seen over Christmas the BBC adaptation of P.D.James’ ‘Death Comes to Pemberley’. 

A fantastic series that saw Darcy and Elizabeth happily married, Wickham charged for murder, and a strange woman hissing in the woods!

Even more exciting, however, were the cast who appeared in the final episode of the series. The redcoated soldiers who guarded the prisoners and marched Wickham to the gallows (along with a display of arms drill!)

YES! The 33rd were on screen! The lads could be seen guarding the court, drilling in the yard and, at one point, could be heard playing the fife and drum. (I have to admit…I screamed every time I saw (or heard) a redcoat!)

Keep an eye out for the 33rd if you watch the series. They made it for me!
