Period Drama Character Name Game {1}


Here's a game all about the characters in period dramas! I'll give you the name of a character and you tell me which period drama they come from. Most of these shouldn't be too difficult if you've hung around my blog very long. ;)

To Play: Look at the character names below and guess which period dramas each one comes from. Leave your guesses in a comment and I will respond with your score. Answers will be posted next weekend.

Scoring: Ten points for each correctly guessed period dramas. A high score of 200 points can be earned.


Period Drama Characters:

#1. Dick Dewey

#2. Lucy Honeychurch

#3. Allan Woodcourt

#4. Dorothea Brooke

#5. Henry Crawford

#6. Sybil Crawley

#7. Charles Darnay

#8. Barabara Spooner

#6 is Downton Abbey

#9 is Anne Of Green Gables, Anne Of Green Gables: The Sequel, and Anne Of Green Gables: The Continuing Story

#12 is from Cranford

#18 is from the lovely Lark Rise to Candleford

And I want to say #8 is from Amazing Grace but I'm not for sure.
