Chart a course for Destination: Drama!

Love getting engrossed in a good story?  Starting at 1 p.m. on Sundays, Arizona PBS is airing all your favorite drama series from “Masterpiece” – the recent “All Creatures Great and Small” and “Miss Scarlet and the Duke,” plus classics like “Victoria,” “Grantchester” and “Poldark.” Catch a series you might have missed, or return to ones you can’t rewatch too many times.

What’s coming up in the weeks ahead? Here’s the line-up for February:

“Victoria” at 1 p.m.
As season 2 starts (on Feb. 14), we find Victoria adapting to motherhood after the birth of her first child. Meanwhile, the disaster of the Anglo-Afghan War unfolds abroad, and the catastrophic Irish potato famine begins to wreak havoc. In other foreign affairs, a royal state visit to France is in the offing. Most intriguing to Prince Albert is the budding Industrial Revolution, which is now sweeping England. What an extraordinary time to be Queen!

“Miss Scarlet and the Duke” at 3 p.m.
When headstrong Eliza Scarlet is left penniless after the death of her father, she has two choices for financial security: marriage or her father’s private detective agency. But no matter how well she knows the tricks of his trade, the trade itself is deemed entirely inappropriate for a genteel lady of the 1880s. Enter “The Duke,” Scotland Yard’s Detective Inspector William Wellington, a notorious drinker, gambler, womanizer…and a partner in running the agency and solving crime.

“All Creatures Great and Small” at 4 p.m. James Herriot, fresh out of Glasgow Veterinary College, follows his dream to become a vet in the magnificent Yorkshire Dales. He soon discovers that treating the animals is as much about treating their owners, and the Dales’ farmers are a tough crowd to please. At Skeldale House, James gets to know his chaotic and erratic boss Siegfried Farnon, his wayward brother Tristan and the shrewd Mrs. Hall, who is endlessly steering the ship. When local beauty Helen Alderson attracts James’s attention, he finds another, more enduring reason to stay in the Dales.
