SummaryAdd a Summary
This series is very well written which I strongly recommend to view! From the very beginning it captures the essence of the characters during a time in British history where living in Downton mansion meant a lifestyle of being well-to-do by the standards of the rich&wealthy to have servants,maids,footmen,butlers& the sort were a way of life past on from generation-to-generation,so as we are captivated by the elegance of the family while the less forunate are striving to please the aristocrats! This season1 series is not to be missed with all the hidden secrets bet. family members& servants alike...
