This is the definitive Pride and Prejudice and the most successful TV period drama ever. Starring Colin Firth, Jennifer Ehle and a fabulous supporting cast, this BBC/A&E co-production pulsates with energy as lively, witty Elizabeth Bennet charms smouldering, haughty Darcy against a backdrop of a picture postcard countryside, small-town assembly rooms and stately English homes.
Angry and upset over his rejection, Darcy decides to defend himself. Not every insult she flung at him was fair. He waylays her on her morning walk, hands her a letter and leaves. The contents leave Elizabeth reeling. Wickham, far from being hard done by, was a loose-living scoundrel who had no intention of joining the church and had instead accepted money in compensation. Worse, he had tried to elope with Georgiana, Darcy's 15-year-old sister, just to gain access to her fortune. Darcy had only just arrived in time to foil him. Obviously, Darcy had good cause for his behaviour towards Wickham, but Elizabeth can only shake her head in sorrow and disagreement as she reads that, when he separated Bingley from Jane, he believed her to be indifferent to him.
