If you love Downton Abbey, this is the series for you, a period drama about a group of young women travelling from England to the colony of Jamestown in the New World looking for a better life. But when they arrive, their own hopes and dreams come second as they’re bound to marry the men who arrived in Virginia before them. It was produced by Carnival Films, who also brought the world of the Crawleys to life. (The full boxset of Downton Abbey, incidentally, is available to binge on Showmax.)
