Jenna Coleman In Death Comes To Pemberley [VIDEO]

Jenna Coleman has certainly proved “popular with the dads” when it comes to fitting into Doctor Who. But did you know that the actress is appearing in an adaptation of Death Comes to Pemberley, a gripping and suspenseful 3×60-minute serial set to air over the Christmas period?

It’s the 200th anniversary year of Pride And Prejudice’s first publication, so PD James’ remarkably inventive homage to original author Jane Austen makes a perfect Christmas treat. Austen’s best-known characters, including Elizabeth (Anna Maxwell Martin) and Mr Darcy (Matthew Rhys) have been stunningly recreated in Juliette Towhidi’s adaptation, directed by BAFTA-winning director Daniel Percival

Playing Lydia Wickham (née Bennet), Coleman has a key role in the story, which features various cast members with a Doctor Who connection. Anna Maxwell Martin appeared in The Long Game back in 2005 as Suki Macrae Cantrell, while The Snowmen‘s Tom Ward is Colonel Fitzwilliam. Jane Bingley is played by Wife of the Master Alexandra Moen and the excellent James Fleet who has never appeared in Doctor Who on TV play Mr Bennet; he has, however, appeared in several Big Finish plays.

Whether we get to see Jenna Coleman nude in this drama isn’t known, but as so many of you seem to end up here on Kasterborous to find out, we thought we’d set the record straight on this one.

Death Comes to Pemberley premieres on BBC One on 26 December at 8.15pm and continues on the 27 and 28 December.
