Lord Crawley sees his family heritage, especially the grand country home Downton Abbey, as his mission in life. The death of his heir aboard the Titanic means distant cousin Matthew Crawley, a Manchester lawyer, suddenly is next in line and accepts moving onto the vast estate with his even more modernist, socially engaged mother, who clashes with his lordship’s domineering, conservative ma the dowager. Marrying off the daughters is another concern. Meanwile the butler presides over a staff which serves the family but also lead most of their entire lives in the servants quarters, intriguing amongst themselves. Written by KGF Vissers
I finished the 1st season last night. I really liked this show.. I will definitely be following it. I love the cast. I don’t really follow British shows that much. I have seen “My Family” though. It was a hilarious show. I did follow the cooking shows before but I had stopped doing that too a while ago. This series caught my attention merely by its setting. Plus the fact that it has won many awards and is nominated for the upcoming Oscars. It has been renewed for a third series so this is another proof of its awesomeness. Definitely recommended.
