The series that will replace Downton Abbey on PBS:

If you're looking for the next "Downton Abbey," which wraps up its sixth and final season this winter, PBS has a suggestion.

Next year, the network will air in its Sunday night "Masterpiece" timeslot "Victoria," an eight-part drama about Britain's second-longest-ruling monarch.

Starring "Doctor Who" actress Jenna Coleman, the series will mark the screenwriting debut of best-selling novelist Daisy Goodwin. The show will follow the young queen from her coronation at age 18 in 1837 through her courtship and partnership with her husband Prince Albert.

“'Downton Abbey' has proved that millions of viewers will turn up year after year for a beautifully crafted period drama,” stated "Masterpiece" EP Rebecca Eaton. “'Victoria' has it all: a riveting script, brilliant cast, and spectacular locations. And it’s a true story! This is exactly the kind of programming 'Masterpiece' fans will love.”

Kids were as adults. Or cover the beginning of the backlash, that is, the Edwardians.
