Favourite Shows

While I love an excellent book, I also find it hard to resist British television and miniseries.  Here are a few of my favourites.

Emma – a four-hour miniseries based on the Jane Austen novel.  Romola Garai nails Emma’s fun-hearted spirited in this version.

London Hospital (also known as Casualty 1900s in the U.K.) – an excellent television series about life in the Emergency Department in London in the early 1900s.  Absolutely fascinating!

North & South – I actually liked this miniseries better than the book (I found Margaret Hale cold in the book, but she’s more likeable here).  Quite the love story.

Pride & Prejudice (the 1995 version) – perfectly executed miniseries!  Loved every second of this five-hour visual feast. 🙂

Endeavour – this is a wonderful series about a brilliant but socially awkward detective working in 1960s Oxford, England.  Think Sherlock, but more endearing.  (And Endeavour is actually the main character’s first name, in case you’re wondering about the title.)

Foyle’s War – another excellent detective series, this one set in England during WWII and featuring detective Christopher Foyle.  He’s reserved, soft-spoken, dry-witted and very, very good at what he does.

I'd love to hear your thoughts! Kindly share them here.
