Coping With Downton Abbey Withdrawals – Jane Austen & Dickens Treatment

If you have loved the Masterpiece PBS series Downton Abbey, you may be feeling withdrawals from the drama after last night’s finale of the season.  Until the third season is aired, where do we turn for our romantic fix?  Never fear, Jane Austen is here… and Charles Dickens (a Dickens series beginning on Masterpiece) and the many books written in homage to Austen.  Among the period gems from the past of PBS Masterpiece are Upstairs Downstairs, The Forsyte Saga, The Jewel In The Crown, and Bleak House.  I have been a fan of PBS Masterpiece and the original Masterpiece Theater since it began.  I am very glad that Downton Abbey has brought more attention to this wonderful service of PBS.

Don’t forget to tune in next Sunday night for the repeat of The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens.

Above is one of my many illustrations related to Jane Austen, and this Pemberley design was also inspired by Highclere Castle, where Downton Abbey was filmed.  The design is in my shop, and on many items at CLICK HERE.

    Love the bag Alice! I also love period drama, especially Downton Abbey, just started watching a new series of Upstairs Downstairs on BBC, which is going some way to making up for Downton Abbey being over!.
