If you’re a fan of period dramas. Then you’re probably a fan of Downton Abbey. The show has been a smash hit since it first aired in 2010, and the sixth. And the final season is set to air soon. Downton Abbey tells the story of the Crawley family and their servants in the early 20th century. It’s full of drama, romance, and intrigue, and has won numerous awards including three Golden Globes.
What is the plot of the story?
Downton Abbey is set in the early 20th century and tells the story of an aristocratic family living on a large estate called Downton. The Crawley’s, who are headed by Lord Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) and his wife Lady Cora (Elizabeth McGovern), find themselves facing financial ruin after their fortune has been lost in the sinking of The Titanic. This leads to a number of changes at Downton Abbey, including an influx of new servants and an alliance with another wealthy family.
Who are the main characters?
There are two main families that appear on Downton Abbey: The Crawley’s and their servants. Lord Grantham and Lady Cora are the heads of the Crawley family, while Mr Bates (Brendan Coyle) and Mrs Hughes (Phyllis Logan) are the head servants. Other important characters include Sybil Crawley (Jessica Brown Findlay), Edith Crawley (Laura Carmichael), and Tom Branson (Allen Leech), among others.
What are some of the main plot points?
Some of the main plot points in Downton Abbey include: The sinking of The Titanic, a visit from the King and Queen of England, World War I, and other important historical events.
What are the challenges they face?
The Crawleys and their servants face a lot of challenges. Some of the main ones include The sinking of Titanic, which drowns one heir to Downton Abbey, Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens). World War I is another challenge that they all have to deal with. Another important challenge is Robert’s health issues in later seasons due to his age and declining health.
What do critics have to say?
Critics have said that they love the show, but think it has gotten too dark in later seasons when compared to earlier ones. They also say that it’s a great series because of its strong female characters like Lady Mary Crawley (Michelle Dockery). The acting from Michelle Dockery was so good she won an Emmy for her performance!
What ratings did it get?
The ratings for Downton Abbey were always pretty high, but they really took off in the United States after Season Two aired. In fact, the series finale was watched by over 19 million people in the US alone!

What is the ending like?
The ending is bittersweet. The series finale has all of our favourite characters together one last time before they go their separate ways, but there are some sad moments too like when Anna Bates (Joanne Froggatt) dies from cancer after only living four years with her husband Mr Green (Matt Milne). It’s really beautiful because we get to see her say goodbye to everyone she loves before passing away peacefully in bed surrounded by family members like Mrs Hughes (Phyllis Logan) and Tom Branson (Allen Leech).
Is the series worth the watch?
Absolutely! The series is beautifully written and the acting is phenomenal. You really feel like you’re a part of their world by the end of it. Plus, there are some great life lessons to be learned from watching such an iconic show. For example, don’t give up on your dreams even when times get tough or always be there for those who need you most because they might not always be here tomorrow.
