Mercy Streeet premiered Sunday on PBS after Downton Abbey. A former dancer from my DD's studio is one of the main characters. Her name is Hannah James. If you like period pieces I think you will love this series.

So cool!  I was really looking forward to this series for "dessert" after Downton Abbey (and as a stand-in til Walking Dead starts back up).  I loved the episode last week.  So does your dancer friend plays the southern belle or the new nurse/widow?

To be honest, at the beginning of the episode, I thought the belle's story was a flashback of the widow when she was younger.  The two actresses look very similar.

She's the Southern Belle and I thought it was a flashback too! Her hair is not naturally dark so it threw me a little bit at first. She dyed her hair dark once before to play Velma Kelly and it took forever for her light brown/dark blonde to recover. The accent isn't her real one either. Even though she's a Southern girl she has British parents and has spent a significant part of her life in England including going there for college. I think she pulls it off very well.

I can't watch PBS on demand, but I was able to set it up to record.  I've seen the first 3 episodes so far.  I'm really enjoying it, and the girl playing the southern belle is very talented.  Very convincing in the role.
