  • Upon hearing the terrible news about Lydia and Wickham, Lizzie must return home immediately to her distraught family.

    After her initial awkwardness at Pemberley, Lizzie enjoyed meeting Georgiana Darcy and gaining a much more favourable impression of her host but the news about Lydia and Wickham drives all thought of anything else from her mind as she hurries home to find her mother prostrate with grief and her father without any clue as to where his youngest daughter may be. The only hope the family have is that Lydia and Wickham will now be married and they can put a respectable face on the whole appalling affair. When Darcy finds out what has happened, he makes it his business to help the silly Lydia and, by extension, the entire Bennet family, but does so without telling the Bennet's of his involvement. It soon becomes clear that Lydia and Wickham have not legally become man and wife and so, Darcy sets about making things right for everyone.

    Once again,a superb episode and an excellent performance by Colin Firth who has made the character of Mr. Darcy truly his own through his fantastic portrayal.
