With bells on

I was just asking for another TV or movie adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, and the universe has responded: according to Radio Times, ITV is planning an new TV version of the novel that will "tease out the story's 'darker tones'". My first reaction is: do the darker tones take take much teasing? I mean, this is a novel full of crappy marriages, the looming prospect of poverty, and potential social ruin. Does the happy ending fully negate that? I have my doubts, but I will obviously be there to watch this series the split second it is released.
