Why Is British TV Producing So Many Period Dramas?
"With a period piece, the only likely controversies are anachronism of language or possibly an objection that there was too much nudity or sex ... In present-day fiction, however, the plot is likely to throw up issues of sexuality, prejudice, violence, addiction, swearing and political balance of the sort that risk dividing audiences and shortening [producers'] careers."
