Sanditon Main Cast

ITV's Sanditon nears its conclusion but just how many episodes are left?

Who doesn't love a good period drama? They're often full of intrigue, romance and plenty of cracking outfits.

ITV's adaptation of Jane Austen's Sanditon offers that up in spades, even if the series may not stick as closely to the unfinished novel as some may have liked.

Over the course of the last few weeks, we've got to know Sanditon's cast of characters and become engrossed in their storylines.

However, we've not got long left until the ITV series bids farewell to Charlotte, Sidney and co as well as the idyllic seaside town of Sanditon.
