Getting down with Downton Abbey – finally!

I’ve been catching up on Downton Abbey. I finally had to give in and buy the box set so that I could watch the programme from the very beginning after missing the beginning. I’m so pleased that I did – I do love a period drama and this is an amazingly well-made one. As I watch it I am transported back into times gone by and am gripped by every second. I’m currently on series two and love the changes from series one as we delve into the 1930’s and 40’s and wartime England. It is fascinating to see the comparison of life between the poor and the wealthy as they make their way through everyday life. I would seriously recommend this programme to anyone who is interested in vintage, history, period dramas and the like. That is, if there is anyone out there who hasn’t seen it!
