One of the funnest things about period dramas is quoting the various witty and charming remarks spoken by some of our favorite characters.
Below are 15 quotes from various period dramas from which I've removed the character's names.
Your job is to guess which period drama the quotes come from and put your answers in a comment.
I'll comment back with your score. Feel free to guess as many times as you wish.
I'll be posting the answers this time next week. Enjoy!
