Description

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.

Customer Reviews

Essential Companion, Beautifully Done

This is a must for Downton fans! The well-organized book contains interesting chapters on how the upper classes and their servants lived in England before World War I. I found this historical and social context adding to my enjoyment of the production and I really appreciated all of the attention to detail taken by the producers. I also loved the book's plentiful photographs from the both the production and the real life people and settings that are the counterparts to the Downton world. Completing this essential volume, the book includes production notes and various cast members' recollections during filming. A very thoughtfully conceived viewers' companion!

Not what I expected

I was expecting to read of the "adventures" of the family. I got bored quickly and finished it because I paid for it.
