The 30 Best Period Dramas From the Last 30 Years
Found a list of period dramas, some of which I haven’t seen yet. While others such as, Sense and Sensibility and North and South, are among my favourites. Of course, some of my other favourites like Downton Abbey and the newer adaptation of Emma starring Romola Garai are missing, but these are the authors faves and not necessarily a comprehensive list.
What about you…are there any period dramas favourites that you’d like to share?
I’m always looking for good TV dramas to watch. 😀

In the week following the Downton Abbey premiere, some disappointed killjoys notwithstanding, I probably don’t have to do much to sell you on the idea of watching period dramas. They’re a hobby/comfort food of mine, these only-somewhat-highbrow historical pageants, usually starring British actors and just as often tied to the BBC. Sometimes people ask if I long to be dressed up in fancy corsets and mooning about drawing rooms, if that’s what draws me to them. I don’t think so. I think what attracts me personally is the self-conscious sort of grandeur these things always have, a grandeur which is missing from most of our contemporary depictions of our lives.
