Manor House Mashup

One of my current favorite TV shows is Downton Abbey. It’s full of drama, awesome costumes, and plenty of snark. Brilliant! Unlike so many Masterpiece shows, it’s not based on a classic novel. But Book Riot has taken care of that with their literary casting.

My favorites: The Earl of Grantham as Henry Dashwood and The Dowager Countess as Lady Catherine de Bourgh. But I disagree with Lady Edith as Fanny Price (Fanny is not so ineptly evil!) and Lady Sybil as Marianne Dashwood (Sybil seems like a combination of Marianne and Eleanor, actually).

Check out the whole list for your daily dose of British fandom.
