Downton Abbey – GIVEAWAY

 

It’s Sunday night, and in previous weeks, I would have been sitting down with some hand sewing, a cup of tea and Downton Abbey. Unfortunately, the series has now finished airing on television – but luckily for us Downton Abbey addictee’s (yes it is a word), Season 1 will be released on DVD this week.

 

Downton Abbey Cast Picture

 

This television series is an addictive English period drama, set in 1912, just ahead of an impending social revolution. We are swept into the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family, and the day-to-day obligations of those who live and work at the grand estate with the challenges of status and duty.

 

With all the elements of a juicy soap opera - romance, conflict and jealousy driven by a host of characters you’ll love to hate. It's easy to see why Downton Abbey is so highly addictive.

  47. I can't stop watching Trueblood :) I first read the book series a few years ago and have since re-read it several times. I was so excited when they said they were making a TV series of it! It was a little disappointing how far they drifted from the original plot, but I still love it.
