Masterpiece Classic: Downton Abbey (Original UK Unedited Edition)
Title: Masterpiece Classic: Downton Abbey (Original UK Unedited Edition)
Set in an Edwardian country house in 1912, Downton Abbey portrays the lives of Lord Grantham and the rest of the Crawley family, as well as the servants who work for them. In the drawing rooms, library, and beautiful bedrooms, with their tall windows looking across the park, lives the family, but below stairs are other residents, the servants, as fiercely possessive of their ranks as anyone above.
Downton Abbey—a sprawling, lavish Edwardian mansion nestled in the Yorkshire landscape—needs an heir. Dame Maggy Smith stars as Violet, the stubborn Dowager Countess of Grantham matriarch of Downton. Hugh Bonneville stars as her son, the stoic, unflapple Lord Crawley. Elizabeth McGovern is his far-sighted American wife, Cora. From Academy Award-winner Julian Fellowes. This is the original un-edited UK version of the program.
