Jumping on the bandwagon

- 0 Comment(s)

Everybody's talking about Downton Abbey: the manor house, the costumes, the romance, so why not?

CPL has it on blu ray and dvd so I decided to partake.

Maggie Smith plays the matriarch in this family saga that also features the household staff whose lives increasingly intersect with their employers' due to the changing social climate after the First World War. If you liked Upstairs, Downstairs and Gosford Park, you'll enjoy Downton Abbey.

Place your hold now and see what all the fuss is about...

The great thing about some of these historically based series is the tie-in research you can do just for fun...The Countess of Carnarvon has written in response, Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey (coming soon), or if you just want to get caught up in the show, there's The World of Downton Abbey.
