Easy on Sunday

There’s something about winter Sunday nights that beg for a period drama.

When you know you’re facing Monday morning and a week of toil, it’s chance to cosy up and wallow in nostalgia for an hour.

We had the grandeur of an Edwardian country house in Downton Abbey.

Then it was way back to the end of the 19th century in Lark Rise to Candleford.

Now it’s the turn of South Riding, set in 1930s Yorkshire.

It’s a great way to learn some social history.
