Watching "The Pallisers", a 1974 BBC drama. I'm not sure how we missed it when it was on TV, but it's very enjoyable, following the story of three generations of an aristocratic family in Victorian times. The acting is superb, and the plot involves arranged marriages, doomed love affairs, and affairs of a political nature as several characters are members of her Majesty's Government. I get so caught up in it that I forget I'm watching a show. There are 26 episodes and we're up to episode 13. New characters are introduced as the story unfolds so there's never a dull moment.
