Jenna was one of the cast of new TV series ‘Death Comes to Pemberley’, the sequel to Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’.

The cameras began rolling on Wednesday at Hardcastle Crags and Gibson Mill, when the cast, which also included Matthew Goode, star of ‘Watchman’ and ‘Brideshead Revisited’ and Trevor Eve, whose TV credits have included ‘Shoestring’ and ‘Waking the Dead’, filmed scenes for the three-part series, which is due to be screened around Christmas.

Based on the PD James novel, it tells the tale of Elizabeth and Mr Darcy five years into their marriage.

The plot surrounds the character of Lydia Wyckham (Jenna Louise Coleman) whose husband is killed, creating chaos in Pemberley.
