7 Shows to Watch After Finishing Downton Abbey

If you haven't had your fill of British Period drama

If you haven't already binge-watched your way through the sixth season of Downton Abbey on iTunes, you're well aware we're in the homestretch to the finale of the show this side of the pond. PBS was clear and this is the last season for the Crawley/Grantham gang, and it is over.

That's right; I paid cash money to watch the whole damn thing in one afternoon and now I am left with an affected British accent I cannot shake. Also spoiler alert: everyone is eaten by vampires. 

If you enjoy speaking in upper-crust tones and aren't quite ready to face anything before 1960, here are some great British period shows to watch after Downton Abbey says Cheerio! 

Jeni Marinucci is YMC's Creative Director. She has a guilty conscience, a love for humour, and a questionable home-haircut. After her children were old enough to make their own sandwiches, she returned to University to complete her B.A. in English Literature—a designation which has provided her with an extensive library and crushing student loans. When no teaching college wanted her, she had to choose between taking orders through a drive-thru window or from an editor. She chose the latter.
