Another Period Drama Couples Quiz


Bonus Photo Question:
Can you name this couple and the older period drama they are featured in?
The first Period Drama Couple Quiz I posted a couple weeks ago was quite popular so I'm taking from my long list of period drama couples again to bring you this quiz. Remember as you guess that not all the couples listed are the hero and heroine of their stories. 

To Play: Read the clues below and leave a comment guessing which period drama couple I'm thinking of and which period drama or story they come from. Guess as many times as you wish. I'll respond with your score. The answers will be posted next Saturday.

Scoring: Four points for each correctly guessed gentleman, lady and period drama (or classic story). Twenty points can be earned by guessing the names of the couple in the Bonus Photo Question above and the older period drama they are featured in. A total score of 200 points can be earned.


Couple Clues:

Couple #1. Heroic archer with a thieving habit. / Titled lady who shares his passion for helping others.

Couple #2. Sweet and naive young heroine's friend. / Gentleman farmer who writes a very good letter. 

Couple #3. Impetuous younger sister of heroine. / Spendthrift charming soldier. 

Couple #4. Naive young songstress. / Her protector and patron of the musical theatre.

Couple #5. Sweet young lady and princess of her moorland clan. / Brave young farmer.

Couple #6. Imaginative young postal assistant. / Handsome news journalist.

Couple #7. Hilariously silly hero's sister. / Rich speculating investor. 

Couple #8. Princess kidnapped by her own fiance. / Poor farm boy turned pirate.

Couple #9. Angelically sweet doctor's daughter. / French nobleman turned tutor.

Couple #10. Passionate young songbird with high ideals. / Military gentleman with disappointment in his past.

Couple #11. Freedom talking British politician. / Spirited young woman who encourages him to rise above failure.

Couple #12. Bookworm with an overactive imagination. / Witty clergyman with knowledge of textiles.

Couple #13. Imaginative girl who doesn't make the same mistake twice. / Merciless teaser who later turns chum.

Couple #14. Sensible young ladies' maid. / Crippled soldier turned valet.

Couple #15. She's a trusted companion and housekeeper with a mysterious past. / He's a kindly physician of Welsh origin.


Happy guessing!

Melody said...

Woo-hoo! These are fun. And the picture is Charlotte and Mr. Collins from the 80's P&P. ;)

1: *blink, blink* Well I would think Robin Hood, but then the lady wouldn't be titled. :P

2. Harriet Smith and Robert Martin from Emma. :)

3. Lydia Bennet and George Wickham, P&P?

4. Could this be Christine and Raoul from The Phantom of the Opera?

5. Oooh, is this Lorna Doone and... um... OH COME ON I KNOW HIS NAME. Argh. It'll come to me. Hopefully. Anyway, from Lorna Doone. Heehee. Maybe?

6. Laura Timmins and I can't remember the guy's name, Lark Rise to Candleford

Your guess on #5 was incorrect.
Your score is 168 points! Good work!

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Abigail,

On #11 you guessed the correct hero and period drama but wrong heroine. On #12 you guessed the correct couple but forgot to mention the name of their story.

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Melody,
Your guess on the bonus photo was completely correct.
Your guesses on clues 2, 3, 4, 8 (she was called a princess but not sure how that worked really), 10, 11, 12, 13 and 15 were completely correct.

On #1 you guessed the correct hero and story (yes, the lady was titled), for #5 you guessed the correct heroine and story, for #6 the correct lady and period drama, on #7 the correct lady and story, for #14 the correct period drama.

You should very definitely know #9, at least this Ladybird thinks so!

Your score is 164. Good work! :)

Melody said...

Haha, I'm back!
Okay, so 1... then I would say it was Marian (I've heard it both Lady Marian and Maid Marian...) but if the title isn't Robin Hood I don't know what it is. :P

5 is John... Ridd, right? Haha, the name isn't very memorable, no wonder I couldn't think of it to begin with. ;) Although I suppose if the story was called John Ridd instead of Lorna Doone I would. :P

9! Lucie Manette and Charles Darnay from A Tale of Two Cities. Heehee, I rather forgot that Charles was a tutor. For some reason when I read that I was picturing some slightly older guy with a heavy French accent actually tutoring the lady in question. Oops. ;)

Oh, and on 6... is his name Daniel or was that a different fellow? (And even if it isn't, I can't remember the last name.)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Melody,
You guessed the correct lady on #1 (and the title was correct). You guessed the correct guy on #5. And on #9 you guessed completely correct. Yes, you guessed the correct first name for the guy on #6 so I'll let you have the point.
Your updated score is 188 points! :)

1- Robin Hood and Maid Marian, Robin Hood
2- Harriet Smith and Robert Martin, Emma
3- Lydia Bennet and George Wickham (ugh), P&P
4- Christine Daae and Raoul, Vicomte de Whatsisname, Phantom of the Opera
5- Lorna Doone and John Ridd, Lorna Doone
6- Laura Timmins and... um... the guy she marries?, Lark Rise to Candleford
7- Perhaps Felix Carbury and a lady whose name I don't know on The Way We Live Now?
8- Princess Buttercup and Westley, The Princess Bride. The way that worked is explained in the book but not the movie-- apparently Humperdinck couldn't marry a girl without a title, so they fenced off a tiny portion of land in Florin, named it Hammersmith, and made Buttercup the Princess of Hammersmith in a private ceremony. Heeheehee. :D
9- Lucie Manette and Charles Darnay, A Tale of Two Cities (haha, I was quite stumped on this one, but then your mention of Ladybird in the comment to Melody clued me in)!
10- Marianne Dashwood and Colonel Brandon, S&S
11- William Wilberforce and Barbara Spooner, Amazing Grace
12- Catherine Morland and the ever-wonderful Henry Tilney, Northanger Abbey
13- Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe, Anne of Green Gables
14- Perhaps a couple from Downton Abbey? I don't know any of the names though.
15- Esther Summerson and Allan Woodcourt, Bleak House
