5.0 out of 5 stars "Downton Abbey" - Series 1 DVD, 19 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Downton Abbey - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Another "Quality British Drama"- who else can make this type of programme? Its been many years since a Period Piece of this standard has been on our television screens. A story of a family from Britain's "Old Aristocracy" whose lifestyle remained unchanged for generations. They are about to embark a whole new Era with the advent of World War I which will change the family's direction forever. Their former self-absorbed existence is about to give way to the levelling effects of the War as it slowly begins the dismantling of the British Class system. The Matriach of the family played by Maggie Smith represents everything from the Old Order which is about to be undone. On the surface her three over-indulged grand-daughters are the ones who have the most to lose as their new world unfolds about them; or will they perhaps be the ones who have the most to gain if they embrace the changes in Society which will overtake them? Bring on Series 2 so we can all find out!!!
