Are you a Downton Abbey fan? If you love that series, or historical drama in general, I’ve got a list of nine more shows you have to see!
They may not have everything in common with Downton Abbey, but they’re all period dramas that will draw you in just the same way. All nine are on my list of favorite shows, and I can’t wait for you to see them!
If you have someone on your gift list that loves Downton Abbey, one of these would be a great gift idea! These are perfect for watching over the holidays, and I’m already looking forward to it.

Hands down, Pride & Prejudice is my favorite! I have watched it so many times, and I know I will watch it thousands of times more. This is my favorite version, and I love the casting of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth…and the whole cast! If you’ve seen the version with Keira Knightley, it’s okay–but this one is a must see.
North & South is one of my absolute favorites, and I could watch it again and again. And I do! It’s the story of the daughter of a parson and a cotton mill owner in northern England, and her struggles with a new town and way of life. This is in my top three–I LOVE it!
This is my favorite version of Persuasion…I’ve watched it a hundred times, at least! Young Anne Elliot breaks off her engagement with a handsome naval officer after being persuaded to do so, and eight years later he appears in her life again. SO good!
