Downton Abbey is a historical drama written by Julian Fellowes. The series follows the lives of the Crawley family and the servants who work for them in an Edwardian country house just after the turn of the 20th century.
Rose's wedding is just around the corner but family tensions on both sides threaten to derail proceedings. Edith's arrangement with Marigold is working out as she continues to conceal the truth from her parents. Denker reveals another side to her personality, which causes trouble for more than one of the servants. Branson makes a heart-wrenching decision.
I know some of you are thinking, "oh joy, another stuffy British period drama" but I think that you would be happily surprised by Downton Abbey. Yes, it is another British period drama with lovely costumes, but it touches on topics that are relevant to today and it has one of the most talented casts currently on television. The storylines are strong and very easily keeps your attention which is saying a lot considering some of the other shows on the air today. Read more
