Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas: Sanditon Season 1 and Victoria: The Complete Seasons 1, 2 & 3 Collection

This holiday season PBS Distribution has a wonderful selection of gift-giving options for Jane Austen fans and lovers of period dramas, as well as award-winning and learning-based programs for children. Available just in time for the holidays on DVD and/or Blu-ray are: “Sanditon, Season 1,” and “Victoria: The Complete Seasons 1, 2 & 3 Collection.” 

I have enjoyed watching Victoria and Sanditon and definitely recommend these two dramas especially if you love Jane Austen or any type of PBS Masterpiece shows. I'm a huge fan and have enjoyed watching the variety of shows on Amazon Prime. These two programs have joined my "favorites" category (including Jamstown, Poldark and The Durrells in Corfu just to name a few). So, I definitely recommend checking out these two dramas. They definitely put a smile on my face when I watch them. Plus, they would make great last minute holiday gift ideas.


“Sanditon” is the fan-favorite series that has everyone begging for a second season! Emmy Award®-winning writer and Britain’s national treasure, Andrew Davies, adapts Jane Austen’s last unfinished novel vividly to life in an epic drama romantics will fall in love with. Upon her arrival in the seaside town of Sanditon, the sensible and naïve Charlotte Heywood (Rose Williams), observes hypochondria, avarice and attempted seduction run amok. Lady Denham (Anne Reid), is playing matchmaker for her destitute nephew, Sir Edward, who is determined to seduce Lady Denham’s ward, Clara and become the primary heir to his aunt’s estate. The arrival of wealthy, mixed-race heiress Miss Lambe, under the guardianship of visionary entreprenuer Tom Parker’s (Kris Marshall), upright and charming, brother Sidney Parker (Theo James), adds an interesting complication. Eligible men naturally find Miss Lambe fascinating, while Charlotte is intrigued by Sidney… With many promising loose ends and romantic possibilities, how will the young people pair off? Who will Lady Denham designate as her heir? Will Tom’s tourist spa finally catch on with the public? Where will that lead? Andrew Davies imaginatively enters this world of Georgian-era suitors, hustlers and health cranks and boldly tells us what happens next. “Sanditon, Season 1” has a run time of 370 minutes on 2 discs and extra bonus footage that did not air during broadcast. The DVD SRP is $39.99 and the Blu-ray SRP is $49.99. The series is available now.
