Pride and Prejudice DVD

Updated on August 30, 2017

Pride and Prejudice DVD - which version is better?

I just love the Pride and Prejudice DVD based on the story by Jane Austen. I have to confess that our dog's name is Bingley and his brother's name is Darcy - yes, named after the characters in Pride and Prejudice!

But I am finding it hard to decide which version I like better - the 1995 Pride and Prejudice miniseries version (starring Colin Firth as Mr Darcy and Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth Bennet) or the 2005 movie (starring Matthew Macfadyen as Mr Darcy and Keira Knightly as Elizabeth Bennet).

You have opportunity to have your say a little further down this page.

The Pride and Prejudice miniseries first aired on television in the autumn (fall) of 1995. It was an instant hit. Each of the 6 episodes was watched by over one million viewers. And when the first videos of the miniseries went on sale, they sold out in two hours. To watch the whole show, you will need to set aside about six hours. The storyline of the miniseries remains reasonably true to the book with a few embelishments.

The 2005 Pride and Prejudice movie is much shorter than the miniseries - only about two hours. Obviously to make it so much shorter than the miniseries, some sections of the original novel (and even some characters) had to be missed out. But this is still a delightful rendition.

      I have to say, as far as girlie movies go I'm not a big fan. However with the Pride and Prejudice series and film I loved them both. Maybe thats because I'm an English Major, or because they are simply just that good!

      I couldn't choose between these two wonderful movies without watching them both again.

      I can't pick one since I haven't seen the newer version. I thought I was going to see it broadcast, but the TV listings showed a curret time version rather than the listed 2005 version. You've reminded me to look it up again. Great lens! Thanks :D

      This is one of my favorite Jane Austen stories! I really like both versions. I had the opportunity a while back to watch the entire 1995 version in one sitting without interruption (which never happens) and I just watched the 2005 version last night. It seems every time I watch it, I gain some additional insight into the characters. Pride and Prejudice is a classic that is not to be missed!
