Creepy, yes, and eerily effective. That show's motto must be "No Holds Barred".
Pemberley -- I think the actor who plays Colonel Fitzwilliam (Tom Ward) should have been cast as Darcy. He has more presence than Matthew Rhys, more authority...and he's better-looking. (P&P stresses that Darcy is even more handsome than Bingley.) Jane Austen and P.D. James have a lot in common stylistically; they both wrote/write elaborate, carefully thought-out sentences, and they both have the same quiet, understated sense of humor. It's a good match.
