Hi there :) I'd love to watch more BBC mini series or just more episodic period stuff in general but there's so many I never know what's good and what's not. Could you help? Thank you!

These are the miniseries I’ve seen (well at least the one i can remember):

War and Peace (2016)
Emma (2009)
Great Expectations (2011)
North and South (2004)
Sense and Sensibility (2008)
Death Comes to Pemberley (2013)
Pride and Prejudice (1995)
Persuasion (1971)

I know they are not miniseries but Poldark (2015) and Victoria (2016) are both wonderful tv shows. If anoyne has other recs, feel free to mention it. I’m sure we all would be grateful. :D
