What can be done to have cleaner appearing oil? Or should I just give up now?

I have thought about using the "10 minute Engine flush" off the shelf and then running a short period with ATF.

Bad idea. No-very bad idea. Just change your oil and filter every 3-4k miles with a diesel-rated oil of the correct weight for your climate and meeting your personal sythetic/dino preference and you will be fine.
Whoever said there's nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes never had a cheap Jaguar.

83 300D Turbo with manual conversion, early W126 vented front rotors and H4 headlights 362,xxx miles
08 Triumph Street Triple 30,xxx miles, lowered 10mm in front, Pirelli Angel GT tires, EBC HH brake pads, otherwise stock.
88 Jaguar XJS V12 92,xxx miles. I should be in the garage now.
