Which costume drama should you watch?


Downton Abbey is over, and we’re truly devastated. No more snide comments from Lady Mary, no more tears shed over Edith’s awfully bad luck, and definitely no more trying to work out how Mrs Patmore in the kitchen manages to whip up such glorious feasts without a single basic appliance.

So what’s going to fill those lazy Sunday evenings on the sofa? As it happens, there’s a simple solution: the Cads & Corsets Collection in On Demand fit for all your costume drama needs, full of classic BBC mini-series from Austen’s finest to more serious tales. But if you’re struggling to know where to start, play our quiz and find out exactly which show deserves your undivided attention. Plus, did we mention that you might just spot two of our favourite Brit actors – Colin Firth and Benedict Cumberbatch – amidst all the ruffles too?
