My Weekly Latest Issue May 16

May 16 issue

Portrait shot of My Weekly fiction editor Susan WatsonWhen it comes to TV escapism I do love a period drama. I recently watched Downton Abbey: A New Era. It was lovely to be reunited with all my favourite characters – especially as some of the film was set in the glorious south of France! I’m also a huge fan of Bridgerton and while there might be a little while to wait for the third series, a prequel called Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story is available on Netflix now. I can’t wait to watch it! You can read more about all our favourite period dramas in our feature on page 34. Enjoy the mag and have a great week!
