Foyle's War

Television Show Time Warp

If you are a fervent television watcher and also enjoy history, then you might want to give these television shows a try. Take a trip back in time to ancient Rome, London during the Blitz, swashbuckling 17th-century Paris, or the American West in the 1870s.

I have some favorites in this list: Foyle's War, The Musketeers, Endeavour, and Bletchley Circle. However, I found several more that I would like to give a try, and hopefully you will as well. My list of things to watch is almost as long as my list of things to read!

This list only contains television shows and is just a sampling of what's out there. You won't find any period drama television miniseries here, because that would be a list all its own!
