Foyle's War (2002-2010)

I recently discovered this British period drama cum mystery series and can't praise it too highly. Start with the first episode ("The German Woman") and meet Detective Chief Inspector Foyle (Michael Kitchen) as a modest yet razor sharp British policeman trying to do his crime-fighting job on the homefront during World War II. The series begins in May 1940 and ends 22 episodes later in August 1945 and incorporates many actual historical events.

Upstairs, Downstairs (2011)

This three-part series picks up a few years after the old Upstairs, Downstairs television series left off, circa 1936.  The maid, Rose (Jean Marsh) returns and there's lots of nostalgia throughout.  A bit on the sugary side but fans of the 1970s series will enjoy the trip down memory lane--and the full color production.

I, Claudius (1976)

Roman history and political skullduggery come alive in this BBC miniseries. Has something of a stagey feel (in a good way), the dialogue is sharp, and the saga of the "half-wit" Roman emperor engaging. If you enjoyed HBO's "Rome" miniseries, this one picks up about where "Rome" left off. Check Our Catalog
