Last week, we kicked off the Drama World Series, a three-week bracket smackdown between eight of your most beloved TV shows. We’ve tallied your votes and are one step closer to finding out which competitor will win an all-day marathon on KQED PLUS on Sunday, October 29, 2017.

Before we get to this week’s matchups, let’s take a moment to pour one out for our fallen heroes.

Poldark lost by less than one percentage point to Victoria. Putin strikes again?

Poor¬†Anne of Green Gables didn’t stand a chance against the Countess and everyone else at Downton Abbey, only managing 24% of the vote.

Sherlock’s cheekbones and upturned collar proved to be cooler than Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries.

And, perhaps with a little help from above, Grantchester’s sexy vicar¬†managed to defeat Prime Suspect’s Helen Mirren.

Which brings us to this week’s semi-final! Let your voice be heard!

Make sure to come back next Monday to find out the results and vote in the final! Need to kill time between now and then? Catch up on our recaps of Poldark, Victoria, and Downton Abbey!
