The paper dolls come from Vulture and their episode recaps are also most informative. The modern mother may enjoy seeing who's who in real life. For a Season 3 preview here are some gratuitous shots of Downton in the Roaring Twenties. Don't miss the video at the end of the article.
oh happy days!
If that isn't enough and the mannerly mother finds herself craving Masterpiece drama of a similar ilk, no BBC video library should be without the following:
Brideshead Revisited 30th Anniversary Edition (my that does date one, now doesn't it) and do read the book and everything else by Evelyn Waugh

The House of Eliott - the story of two English sisters who set up a couture house in London following WW1 to rival Chanel across the channel. A personal favorite.

Pride & Prejudice - Colin Firth version, of course. You might try that book as well. The author, Miss Austin, is well thought of by many readers.

If you need a little suspense and murder to go with your English drama, you can't do better than Sherlock. The second season begins May 6 on Masterpiece. We adore this modern adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classics. Could it be because of one Benedict Cumberbatch?

Lest we forget the modern mother may be able to fill her Downtonless time with Mad Men Season 5 starting (at last!) this Sunday.
