People can't stop binge-watching the 'brilliant' new period thriller which first dropped on Paramount+ last week (27 November).

Set in Victorian London, the series, which has been adapted from the novel of the same name by Elisabeth MacNeal, follows the story of a young woman called Iris Wittle - a porcelain-doll painter who burns to become an artist.

Check out the official trailer here:

The six-part series, The Doll House, follows Iris, played by Esmé Creed-Miles, who paints dolls for a living alongside her resentful twin sister, Rose Whittle, played by Mirren Mack, who is scarred by smallpox.

The official synopsis continues: "Iris then meets two men, Silas and Louis, where their lives become intertwined.

"As the series unfolds, dark, chilling truths are exposed."

Joining the likes of Creed-Miles and Mack includes Normal People's Eanna Hardwicke as Silas and Derry Girls' Saorise-Monica Jackson as Bluebell.

"Looks like a drama for women who love period romance stories, with a very small amount of 'mystery' sprinkled in," added another.

Other fans took to X (formerly Twitter) to likewise share their praise for the series.

"The Doll Factory on Paramount+ was so good!" gushed a third.

A final Twitter user quipped: "I haven't watched The Doll Factory yet but I am very excited to!"

You and me both.

Well, while it's definitely not your typical Love Actually, The Holiday and Home Alone Christmas viewing - this new period drama is looking like a keen contender to cosy up to this festive period.

The Doll Factory is currently available to stream on Paramount+.
