I'm not normally a fan of this style of TV show, but to my surprise I am a total Downton Addict!! With its plot twists and fun characters, I just can't wait to see the next episode each time I watch it...very funny and clever, interesting to learn of different times too!Report this review
This period drama is superb, you never know what is going to happen next and the acting is excellent. Whilst the main plot follows the lives of The Granthams, the stories of the servants are also interweaved showing a fascinating insight to life in a grand country house in Edwardian times. It certainly keeps me guessing and I can't wait to see each new episode.Report this review
I've been watching the series on ITV1 and have already put in a pre-order. This is one of the best period drama offerings for a while. It's just saucy enough to attract those who hate anything with costumes, and a clever use of small screen talents. Dame Maggie Smith is wonderful as the dowager countess, and definitely watchable enough to justify buying on DVD!Report this review
The first episode is full of promise, Maggie Smith is excellent, as always. In a nutshell, the heir to the estate has been killed on the Titanic and the story is starting to progress as to who the daughters of the estate could marry to save the family.Report this review
Beautifully set, fantastic writing and an amazing cast - all in all one of the best period pieces in a long long time *****Report this review
Sumptuous costume drama, full of well known faces and much loved cast. Delves into the lives of the Crawley family and it's servants in the years leading up to World War 1. Another excellent drama series which is well worth adding to any collection. Released on 8 November, it will make an excellent Christmas present for all the family.Report this review
