Another great article I found on tumblr, this time par ladychauffeurs. I DID NOT WRITE THIS ARTICLE. I just thought it was excellent, so I posté it to the Branson and Sybil spot, but I felt I should post it here, too. That way the people who don't like Sybil/Branson ou Branson (to whom this article is addressed), who are unlikely to go on the Branson and Sybil spot, have a chance to read it, too.

Realism, it ain’t. In the world of Downton Abbey, war is a weekend sport and young ladies can kill Turkish diplomats with sex. The characters, when not in the midst of a pause, race through history and the corridors of Highclere château with breath-taking speed and dramatic flair. Some people swear par the show, calling it "compulsively watchable"; others ridicule its stylized dramatics and jump-the-shark antics, but you’ll be hard pressed to find a person who can’t hum the theme song.

Downton Abbey premiered on Great Britain’s ITV (ITV.LN) on September 26, 2010. It quickly gained...

"THE WRONG CLASS"

After three seasons of viewing Britain's ITV series, "DOWNTON ABBEY", it occurred to me that there was something off about Julian Fellowes' portrayal of one of the major characters. That character is Matthew Crawley. And it is an error that I am surprised Fellowes had made.


"DOWNTON ABBEY" began with news of the sinking of the White étoile, star liner, the R.M.S. Titanic in April 1912. This famous event also caused the deaths of James and Patrick Crawley, the heirs presumptive to the Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham. This disruption in the line for the Grantham earldom forced Lord...

I saw this brilliant article par GreenKneeHighs@tumblr, and I posté it to the Branson and Sybil spot, but I felt I should post it here, too, because I figure most Sybil/Branson fans are also fans of Branson, so would support this article without question, when the people who really NEED to read this are those Downton Abbey fans who don't like Sybil/Branson ou Branson. I think this article really puts into perspective some of the commentaires Branson has made that have proved unpopular with the fandom.

Once again, I DID NOT write this article; all credit goes to GreenKneeHighs@tumblr.

I'm a huge fan of Downton Abbey much like others on this site. My cousin in Australia is also raving about it too where its appaerntly a huge hit. I so fell in l’amour with the characters and places that I wanted to visit where they filmed it so I did a bit of googling and found toi can do a tour. Without further ado I booked myself on this link which I can highly recommend as it goes to Downton Village and then finishes up at Highclere château where they film the main scenes above stairs. So go on treat yourself like we did and see where its all filmed.
"DOWNTON ABBEY" – Series Three (2012) Retrospective

It took me a while to get around watching Series Three of "DOWNTON ABBEY". I had been inclined to watch it, while it aired on PBS last winter. But in the end, I decided to wait until the DVD release was offered through Netflix.

I suspect that some of my reluctance to watch the show's Series Three could be traced to my major disappointment over the lackluster Series Two. In fact, a part of me is amazed that the series' shoddy look at World War I could end up with an Emmy nomination for Best Drama. But I figured that series creator, Julian...

"DOWNTON ABBEY" – Series One Retrospective

The announcement of ITV’s new series, "DOWNTON ABBEY", had attracted my interest the moment I had learned it would air on American television, during the winter of 2011. I happened to be a fan of Robert Altman’s 2001 movie, "GOSFORD PARK". And when I learned that the movie’s Oscar winning writer, Julian Fellowes, was one of the series’ creators, my interest soon transformed into anticipation.

Focused upon a vast estate during the last years of the Edwardian England, "DOWNTON ABBEY" was able to allow viewers to glimpse into the lives of the...

Mathew Crawley and his Mum, Isobel, ride in one of those gorgeous cars that had to be hand-cranked. Matthew looks cranky. He is. You, too, would be in a foul mood if you’d been told toi were about to inherit a beautiful castle, a large fortune, a title, and a household of servants to wait on toi hand and foot. Isobel, his momma, chides him, “There’s no legal mechanism for toi to refuse it. When toi inherit, toi can throw it away!” What else is an inheritance for, anyway?

"DOWNTON ABBEY" – Series Two (2011) Retrospective

The debut of Julian Fellowes' series about an aristocratic family during the last few years before the outbreak of World War I garnered a great deal acclaim and awards, earlier this year. The success of the series led the ITV and Fellowes to continue the saga of the Earl of Grantham, his family and servants in a new season.

Series Two of "DOWNTON ABBEY" covered the last two years of World War I and the first an of peace during the years 1916 to 1919. Episode One began with Matthew Crawley, the heir presumptive for the Earl of Grantham enduring...

 Season 1 cast?
Season 1 cast?
Since this is my first article on this periodical drama, I will write down the reasons on why I l’amour Downton Abbey.

Interesting Story

I only watch bits of the series, but I hope to watch it from season 1. From what I heard, the story is very interesting and it is not like any drama that I had seen, may it be modern ou period drama.

Lovely Costumes

I l’amour periodical costumes, especially in Europe. I was very familiar with Agatha Christie's Poirot and Miss Marple, so I have no single problem with this drama!

The British Cast

Although I did not watch season 3 onward, but when I watch the 2015 Disney reboot of Cinderella. I found out that Lily James was also from this drama, ironically her Downton Abbey costar Dan Stevens will play the Beast/ Prince Adam in this year's reboot of Disney's Beauty and the Beast!

See toi Soon!

So, here are my 3 reasons and I will be seeing this montrer soon. Would toi all like to see it?
 Christmas Special!
Christmas Special!
Ahead of the Downton Abbey Christmas special on Christmas Day, Margherita Taylor will be in conversation with many of the show’s stars – including Hugh Bonneville (Lord Grantham), Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith) and Penelope Wilton (Mrs Crawley).

Downton Abbey’s creator, Julian Fellowes and its soundtrack composer, John Lunn will also rejoindre Margherita as they celebrate the phenomenon that is Downton Abbey.

We’ll be hearing plenty of musique from the show, alongside classical pieces composed in the Downton era.

This promises to be a real highlight of the Christmas period on Classic FM – so rejoindre Margherita on Friday 21 December from 8pm for An Evening at Downton Abbey!
