Historical dramas have a symbiotic relationship with costume design, with the clothes in high-profile shows like Downton Abbey receiving almost as much coverage as the stars. I suspect that this is one of the contributing factors to the popularity of historical movies about aristocrats, since it’s a lot easier to interview Keira Knightley about corset logistics for the fiftieth time than it is to publicise a bunch of people wearing muddy pinafores and staid woollen caps. I love a good crinoline as much as the next girl, but sometimes a show about The Poors can be just as visually interesting because the costumes can illustrate more than just a statement of expense and luxury. — The Bletchley Circle, Part 2: Costume Design.
