Shows Like "Downton Abbey": "Miss Scarlet and the Duke"
The Crawley sisters may have gumption, but they've got nothing on Eliza Scarlet, the fearless detective who takes over her late father's private detective practice in Victorian London. Eliza's new business is met with dismay by many, including William Wellington, an acclaimed police detective who also happens to be Eliza's childhood friend. Eliza isn't above stealing cases right out from under William's nose, which only adds to the simmering tension between them. While the mystery style of the show makes it a little bit darker than "Downton," it's a wonderful choice for anyone looking for a period drama featuring a woman determined to make her own legacy.
