True Love

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 4:9

Great BBC & ITV historical series that you shouldn't miss!


I have recently been revisiting some of my favorite BBC and ITV series and miniseries and I thought I would like to share some of them here so that others might hopefully look them up and enjoy them as well if they haven't already. Or if you have maybe you will be like me and revisit them and enjoy them all over again! :)

Most of them might be familiar but there could be a few you haven't heard of yet and these definitely deserve a watch believe me! The first three are in order as they are my favorites,however after that the remainder are listed in no particular order.

*** P.S. if you are wondering why there are no mysteries and crime dramas etc. on the list it's only because I'm not a fan of those and don't watch that particular type of series. Though I know many love them they are just not my cup of tea. ***


1. Poldark Starring Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson 


Yes I know there are actually two versions but this is by far the best one in so many ways. Not only is the acting superb but this version actually follows the books written by Winston Graham in which the series is based from really closely as well (unlike the 1970's version which definitely did not). Trust me you do not want to miss this one! It is easily my all time favorite, and considering that we are talking about the BBC historical here that is saying a lot as there are many great ones to choose from!


2. Lark Rise to Candleford - Starring Olivia Hallinan and Julia Sawalha


Based on the book series by Flora Thompson Lark Rise to Candleford is an utter gem! And one not to be missed! It is one of my weaknesses! ;)


3. Bramwell Starring Jemma Redgrave, Ruth Sheen, and David Calder

(Seasons 1-3 Only Season 4 was horrible)



Now in no particular order some of my other favorites...








Robin Hood (2006 TV series) 

(Seasons 1 & 2 and the first half of Season 3 the end stunk)















(It is an utter travesty that they cancelled this after only one season!)



LondonHospital  (Casualty 1900s)



I will be doing another list of my favorite BBC and ITV mini-series and reality series 
very soon!  So be sure to check back!
