Chatsworth Stars in BBC's Major Christmas Drama 'Death Comes to Pemberley'

Death Comes To Pemberley

Excitement is growing amongst staff at Chatsworth as glimpses of the major new BBC drama 'Death Comes to Pemberley' filmed at the Derbyshire estate have been seen ahead of its airing on Boxing Day at 8.15pm.

Chatsworth is the romantic backdrop for the Pride and Prejudice sequel based on the novel by P.D James. Locations inside and out are featured in the one off special starring Matthew Rhys and Anna Maxwell Martin airing on BBC1 this Christmas.
More than 100 cast and crew descended on Chatsworth for a week in July to film scenes in the house and garden with the Painted Hall, Great Dining Room, Sculpture Gallery and Oak Room all featuring in the shoot.

Chatsworth's Stephanie Cliffe said: "There was a real sense of excitement across the estate when the BBC's autumn winter trailer was released as the scenes filmed at Chatsworth look so beautiful. Staff from across the estate were involved with the filming and we can't wait to see results of all the behind the scenes work.
"Our visitors thoroughly enjoyed seeing the filming taking place, and some even got to meet the stars themselves when they came off set. Matthew Rhys certainly gave some of our visitors a real thrill in his guise as Mr Darcy! The filming in the garden was especially exciting, as they filmed quite a few scenes with horses and carriages coming and going. We really can't wait to see it up on screen. It will be a wonderful way to celebrate a magical Christmas."
Chatsworth has been welcoming record numbers of festive visitors this year as the house has undergone a spectacular transformation into the magical land of Narnia to bring C.S. Lewis's classic tale of 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' to life running until 23 December.
