Julian Fellowes hit drama Downton Abbey returns for a second series with all the regular cast including Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Brendan Coyle, Joanne Froggatt and Dan Stevens.
Returning to Downton Abbey in 1916, we see the effects of the First World War on the lives of the Crawley family and the servants who work for them. The new series, including the Christmas Special, sees the return of all the much loved characters whose intertwined lives are rendered more complicated by wartime and its impact on the great house itself.
And when the storms of war have finally cleared, will the way of life known by all the inhabitants of Downton have changed forever?
exemplary, addictive drama
Although we discovered Downton Abbey very late, when the first season was shown on TV, we became totally engrossed. The routine became 2-3 episodes a night. As our first dealings with Booktopia, we found them very efficient and helpful.
