4 Shows to Help You Move on from Downton Abbey

at . Comments

Did you miss out on all the fun of Downton Abbey Season 6?

Well, fear not my friends, because you can now stream it, and every season before it (for those of you late to the party), beginning today on Amazon Prime!

But whether you're a new viewer or just hoping to finish out the Crawley family saga, you know there is an end in sight.

The Race - Downton Abbey

What do you do when you say that final goodbye to the Crawleys? Into what period drama period can you insert yourself next?

We have some ideas for you, and one of them is an Amazon Original series by Julian Fellowes, the creator of Downton Abbey himself.

Take a look!

Julian Fellowes’ Doctor Thorne

Fellowes Show

Starring: Tom Hollander, Stefanie Martini, Harry Richardson

Doctor Thorne follows the story of penniless Mary Thorne, who grows up with her uncle, Doctor Thorne, and their relationship with the nearby Greshamsbury Estate. Although Mary isn't in the photo, I believe the fellow with whom she finds romance is the tall drink of water to the right in the photo.

Mercy Street

Mercy Street

Starring: McKinley Belcher III, Gary Cole, Hannah James

Mercy Street follows the lives of two volunteer nurses on opposing sides of the Civil War. Hmmm. I wonder if they find common ground through their shared path in life.

Starring: Aidan Turner, Eleanor Tomlinson, Heida Reed

Poldark follows the story of a man, Russ Poldark, after he returns home after the American Revolutionary War, at which time he rebuilds his life with a new business venture, makes new enemies and finds unexpected romance. I can't tell you how many people have told me to watch this!

Starring: James Norton, Robson Green, Morven Christie

Grantchester is about a clergyman in the village of Cambridgeshire who does a little investigating on the side. That's fun!
