Period Drama Quotes Quiz
I've decided to try a game this week! Below are 12 quotes from 12 different period dramas. Leave your guesses in a comment and I will respond with your score. 5 points will be rewarded for each correctly guessed period drama and 5 points for guessing the character who says the line, and if there are two characters in question, 10 points will be rewarded for naming them both. A total of 145 points can be earned. I will post the answers next Friday. Have fun! : )
