Sanditon: Season 1 (2019-2020)




Critic Consensus: Despite a strong start, Sanditon's soapy drama quickly dissolves into nothing more than just another beautiful, melodramatic period piece.

Critic Reviews for Sanditon: Season 1

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (16)

"Sanditon" is sexy escapism for winter, tart and political, gorgeous and honest. Austen would have loved it.

January 10, 2020 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

It's not another "Downton Abbey" or "Victoria"; the characters don't have enough complexity or distinction. But it's a pleasing eight-episode diversion.

January 9, 2020 | Full Review…

...a more conventional production inspired by the dozen or so chapters of Austen's unfinished final novel of the same name - expanded freely for TV by - who else? - Davies.

July 23, 2021 | Full Review…

This first season leaves us hanging and as long as Davies was fabricating a story line that did not exist, I'm am hoping there will be a season two.

January 8, 2021 | Full Review…

A delicious period drama filled with all the misunderstandings, scheming siblings, family fortunes, caddish gentlemen, confidences, conspiracies and "mean, miserly old monsters" the genre demands.

April 13, 2020 | Full Review…

[Andrew] Davies superbly introduces most of the Sanditon characters in the first episode. ITV has populated it with the cream of its casting agencies, including Rose Williams, who is luminous as Heywood.
