I love Period Dramas. I enjoy many of them, and there are some that are exceptional and need to be shared with others.. I have been wanting to compile a list of favorites for a long time. I figure putting in on my blog would make it easily accessible. Most are BBC or Masterpiece Theater. Some are regular movies. There are so many this is just a start. I am always looking for more, so if you have one you love that is MIA please leave me the title. Also I would love to know your favorites. If you want any specific reviews just comment or email me. I am sure I have forgotten some and will make amendments as I think of them. There are just so many... check out this website. Their timeline is great to put everything in perspective as to when different shows would have taken place in history.
By the way, you can rent most of these from the Library.
Without any further ado . . .
The Best aka My Top 5
These are clearly my most favorites. Maybe in their own ways they are all #1. There are many versions of Jane Eyre and P&P but these are my favorites. Sorry Timothy Dalton, Toby Stephens made this Jane Eyre the best of the lot. Cranford is fabulous and Wives and Daughters is wonderful.
