The World of Downton Abbey
The World of Downton Abbey | Jessica Fellowes
23 posts | 7 read | 3 to read
A lavish look at the real world--both the secret history and the behind-the-scenes drama--of the spellbinding Emmy Award-winning Masterpiece TV series Downton Abbey April 1912. The sun is rising behind Downton Abbey, a great and splendid house in a great and splendid park. So secure does it appear that it seems as if the way it represents will last for another thousand years. It won't. Millions of American viewers were enthralled by the world of Downton Abbey, the mesmerizing TV drama of the aristocratic Crawley family--and their servants--on the verge of dramatic change. On the eve of Season 2 of the TV presentation, this gorgeous book--illustrated with sketches and research from the production team, as well as on-set photographs from both seasons--takes us even deeper into that world, with fresh insights into the story and characters as well as the social history.

Saw #DowntonAbbey tonight and was really pleased with happy endings all around: a bit of political intrigue, inheritance issues, romance, costumes, and lots more food! Top pic of friends goofing around at our own Downton Abbey Tea a few years back.

Part of my birthday weekend - a trip to see Downton the movie (a bit of escapism!). Our cinema was doing a special afternoon tea Downton style before hand, so we filled up on finger sandwiches, scones with cream & jam and copious amounts of cake before settling into the movie!

Chelsea.Poole Looks lovely! 3mo
LeahBergen That looks wonderful! 😍 3mo
Mitch @LeahBergen @Chelsea.Poole It was a fun way to see a movie! And the cakes we‘re delicious! Some people had even dressed up Downton Style, with glittery dresses and headbands! Sadly we just had jeans and T shirts on! 3mo

I went with friends to a fun little Downton Abbey event at our library today. There were quizzes, snacks, and Downton videos. And of course a reading list! I only left with two books, which seemed like a good start.

Susannah How fun (especially the reading list)! 4mo

If you enjoy Downton Abbey & having withdrawal like I do, this is a great companion book:

✔ Wealth of background info about the tv series with some historical info that inspires the show
✔ Beautiful photographs
✔ Well-structured book
✔ Great narration by Elizabeth McGovern (plays Cora Crawley in the show) - yes, I listened to the audiobook while doing chores + book for photos & historical info which were not narrated in the audiobook 😁

Christmas came early to our house today! We‘re road tripping to our families tomorrow and Monday, but wanted our son to have a “Christmas morning” complete with cookies & milk for the man of the hour 🎅🏻🎄the night prior. My husband put this awesome/hilarious mug in my stocking (he swears he didn‘t see the quote from Carson...LOL 😂) along with tickets to Downton Abbey: The Exhibition next week! So awesome! #stockinggameonpoint

Eyelit Very awesome!!! 2y
julesG Great mug! I wonder if there are mugs with the snarky remarks of Violet and Isobel? 2y
JackOBotts @julesG so many great quips from the series are mug worthy! I think this was an Amazon find. @Eyelit - I‘m super excited! 🤗 2y

julesG Good idea! It's a great show to binge on. 2y
readordierachel I binge watched all of these a few months ago. That theme song got so stuck in my head! It's a good one though :) 2y
EvieBee @ReadOrDieRachel Are you going to move on to Upstairs Downstairs?! Before Downton came out, I used to check those dvds out from the library but I think I only got to the 3rd season! 2y
readordierachel @EvieBee Ooh, that's a good idea! 2y
WhatDeeReads @EvieBee I did go back and listen to this soundtrack. It's phenomenal. I love it. 2y

I've been a miserable shit today. Knocking a few movies and the remainder of Downton Abby out. 1 episode left. They better clean this up nicely because I've invested a lot of emotion in this! #cleanoutthequeue
