And so 2011 and the first six months in the life of the Period Drama King blog are coming to an end. All that remains is to have a go at the first annual end-of-year quiz, catch all the goings-on in Downton Abbey, Satis House and 221b Baker Street over the holiday season, look forward to the many delights coming our way next year (starting with Birdsong on the Beeb in January, pictured above) and generally have a merry old Christmastime. I have been thrilled by the fledgling success of this record of my various scribblings and musings and I'd like to thank all those who have supported this enterprise particularly the academic, the vicar, the forensics expert, the coolest couple in town, the Englishwoman, the Belgian, the lawyer, the emigrant, the jester, the blonde, the teachers, the first Mrs Bates and, last but by no means least, the muslin enthusiast. All I can do in gratitude is promise that wherever people are being dramatic in a time other than our own, I shall continue to be there. Period.
