I don't watch very much TV, but one programme that keeps me coming back every week is Downton Abbey. First aired back in September 2010, the drama has become hugely popular. It is reported that 10 million of us tuned in to watch the third episode of series 3 on Sunday evening.
We simply can't can't get enough of it. The period drama has won many awards and accolades, and has been shown all over the world. Set in the fictional Yorkshire country estate of Downton Abbey we follow the lives, and antics of the Crawley family.
I think its wonderful and heartwarming to see that people still appreciate good stories and interesting characters, and now there is talk of a prequel to the show.
The writer, and co-creater Julian Fellowes has revealed he is working on a prequel telling the story of the courtship of Lord and Lady Grantham. I can't wait!
What do you think? Do you enjoy period drama? Or are you riveted to something else on the TV?
