Meet Mark Darcy, Fitzwilliam’s lesser known Brother

He’s so little known even Jane Austen’s never heard of him! But never mind, as long as the littereery geniasses working for the Daily Fail know him…

    But he was the Darcy-analogue in Bridget Jones’ Diary, and ALSO played by Colin Firth. So if their readers wanted a contemporary gent, he wouldn’t be a bad choice.

      But Mark Darcy wasn’t in Pride and Prejudice. Even somebody writing for the Daily Fail should know the difference.

        This is true. Although perhaps Lizzie’s just dismayed by the thought of Fitzwilliam in a terrible Christmas jumper?

        As my aunt used to say: the good things about bad clothes is that you can take them off. 😉

        (Oh Gods, THAT sweater…!)

        I am in favor of taking EITHER Darcy’s clothes off!

    Maybe he comes from Jane Austin’s secret S&M based fan fiction that they discovered hidden down the back of her writing desk? It’s just a shame they didn’t rediscover her coda about Mr Darcy’s youthful affair with George Wickham at the same time.
