Even if this isn't precisely the sequel to Pride and Prejudice we might have wanted, it's better than no sequel at all.

The miniseries gets the Austen part just right. There have probably been too many straightforward movie and TV adaptations of her novels. Death Comes to Pemberley is a refreshing break from plain Jane.

A devilishly good whodunit by P.D. James that is a sequel to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.

Death Comes to Pemberley, a sequel to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice by P.D. James, is a worthy addition to Austen's original and the BBC adaptation makes that case wonderfully.
