The only truly great thing to come from the end of Downton Abbey is watching the popular period drama’s cast members move on to new projects. Michelle Dockery is busy playing a con artist on TNT’s Good Behavior. Dan Stevens is a powerful mutant on FX’s X-men drama Legion. Lily James played Cinderella, Natasha Rostova in War and Peace and a zombie-fighting version of Jane Austen’s Elizabeth Bennet.

Now it’s Joanne Froggatt’s turn. Froggatt, who played long-suffering ladies’ maid Anna Bates on Downton, has a new drama coming to Masterpiece this spring. And her role couldn’t be more different than sweet Anna Bates. She’s starring in Dark Angel, a drama that tells the story of infamous Victorian poisoner Mary Cotton. The series will premiere as part of the spring Masterpiece lineup, on Sunday, May 21st.

Contemporary crime drama DCI Banks is returning to ITV for a fifth season!

Stars Stephen Tompkinson and Caroline Catz return in a brand new six-part series, based on the books by acclaimed novelist Peter Robinson.  As in previous seasons, the show will once again feature three self-contained stories told over two episodes each. However, in a new twist, a more serial element will also be added, and woven through all six installments.

ITV has released the first full trailer for its splashy upcoming period drama Victoria, to what is undoubtedly the delight of costume drama fans everywhere.

Doctor Who’s Jenna Coleman stars as the titular queen, in her first major role since departing the TARDIS last year. And if this clip is anything to go by – it seems like it’s probably going to turn out to be a pretty smart career move for her, because Victoria looks great. 

Michael Gambon Stars in ‘Churchill’s Secret,” Coming to Masterpiece This September

A feature length drama on the later years in the life of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill is coming to Masterpiece this Fall, and its subject matter is probably not what you’d expect.

Churchill’s Secret is set to air on PBS on September 19, and the drama tells the story of a little known part of Churchill’s life. Based on the book The Churchill Secret: KBO by Jonathan Smith, the film is set in the summer of 1953, when Churchill – now Prime Minister for a second time and in his 70s – suffers a life-threatening stroke, a fact which is kept from the public at large.

Take a Look at the Third Season of ‘Morse’ Prequel ‘Endeavour’

Mystery lovers, rejoice: Endeavour is back for a third season!

The new series of the popular Inspector Morse prequel kicked off in the UK this month although those of us in the US will have to wait a few months to see it for ourselves.

Shaun Evans is back as the young detective Endeavour Morse, who was last seen isolated and languishing in prison, after being framed for the murder of Chief Constable Richard Standish. He had discovered corruption at the very heart of the City Force, but his investigation (obviously) took something of a sinister turn.  Meanwhile, when we last saw Endeavour’s partner, DI Fred Thursday (played by Roger Allam), he had just been shot in the chest. So, you know, there’s kind of a lot going on.

The trailer for the fourth and final season of period drama Mr. Selfridge has arrived, and it looks suitably dramatic and foreboding as the show begins to wind down.

Jeremy Piven stars as the colorful and troubled Harry Gordon Selfridge, and the show’s fourth season will focus on the charismatic entrepreneur’s fall, as he loses hold of both his business empire and the social status he worked so hard to achieve.
