Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Death Comes to Pemberley is a period-piece murder mystery that's beautiful, slow, and talky and will positively bore the stuffing out of young viewers. However, there isn't much to worry about should older kids catch a glimpse of the goings-on while Mom and Dad watch. There is some talk of ghosts, and a murder occurs off-screen. A dead body in rigor mortis is shown at length, with a fatal head wound examined and shown. The dead person's loved ones shriek and cry in grief and fear and describe his murder.
Murky talk of an "attempted seduction" will sail right over young viewers' heads.
Murder is the subject of the miniseries, so it's discussed frequently, with loved ones weeping and screaming in fright or grief. A dead body is shown at length, in graphic detail, but other than that nothing gory appears.
This period piece is set during a time and in a social milieu when manners and politeness were more important than they are now.
Drugs / Tobacco /
A few scenes take place at pubs or parties with drinks clinking or shown discreetly in the background.
