FitzWilliam Darcy of 'Pride And Prejudice' has been established to be part of the TV Universe, as well as of the literary universe (and the movie universe!), thanks to various adaptations over the years. So it's possible that Jim Darcy - that X-15 test pilot mentioned here the other day in that post about 'The Premonition' episode of 'The Outer Limits' - could be descended from the union of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett.

And as there would have been quite a few divergences from the family tree since the Regency period, we could also make the claim that most everyone with the surname of Darcy whom we might meet in a TV show episode is also descended from FitzWilliam Darcy.

Where's the harm in that, eh?
