If you like what they call "bonnet and bustle" productions made in the U.K. and/or are an avid fan of Downton Abbey, you may also enjoy watching a gem called "Cranford".  It was televised back in 2007 and is now available on DVD.  It stars Judi Dench and a cast containing several familiar British actors, including the gentleman who plays Carson on DA and Michael Gambon, who is more famously known for taking on the role of Professor Dumbledore in the Harry Potter series of movies after Richard Harris passed away.

It takes place in a small village in 1842, some sixty years before the time of Downton Abbey.  It is both laugh out loud funny and pass me another hanky tragic but all in all, very well done.  I highly recommend it.
