I have a confession to make: I have a lifelong addiction to British drama. In particular, drama that involves costumes. It’s my crack. I can’t help it. I consume the stuff by the hourload.

But you understand, right? You, too, must be addicted to Masterpiece Classic, Mystery!, or BBC dramas. You’re in agony waiting for the new series of Downton Abbey to start back up, and The Tudors was your guilty pleasure for four years running. I understand. This is a safe place; we’re all friends here. So sit back, kick around for a bit, and enjoy some highly opinionated recaps and reviews, along with a dash of history (might as well learn something, right?) and delicious recipes–because we all need a good snack while we’re watching, don’t we?
