Death Comes to Pemberley - P.D. James

Well, I should say that I didn’t read the book but watched the TV adaptation – and I am assuming that the adaptation follows the book.


On second thought, please tell me I’m wrong and the book is better….or different, because there were a lot of aspects of the story that were just annoying ….. such as random relatives/lovers appearing out of nowhere to justify the plot and the original cast of well-known personalities acting totally out of character.


On the positive, tho, the series featured Anna Maxwell Martin, which made it quite bearable – even though hearing her deliver some of the clunky dialogue made me cringe because she should not have to work from a sub-standard script.
