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.
Mary attempts to build some bridges with her sister but Edith and her secret continues to be a problem. Henry gets used to being a husband, but Charlie's death is hard to get over. Carson finds it hard to keep up with the changes. Spratt feels threatened by Denker's interference. Isobel is given some devastating news. Robert finds out how valuable it is to be independent. The staff and servants get ready to see in 1926 in with a unforgettable New Year's Eve celebration.
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
