Oh my, this series have been raved about endlessly and have been nominated numerous Emmys. I'm so glad Diva Universal has finally brought this series to Singapore. Here's a brief desription of the story from the dvd of the series:
Downton Abbey-a sprawling, lavish Edwardian mansion nestled in the Yorkshire landscape-needs an heir. Dame Maggie Smith stars as Violet, the stubborn Dowager Countess of Grantham, matriarch of Downton. Hugh Bonneville stars as her son, the stoic, unflappable Lord Crawley; Elizabeth McGovern is his far-sighted American wife, Cora. From Academy Award - winner Julian Fellowes
Julian Fellows is of course the guy who wrote Gosford Park. And I loved Gosford Park.
Now check out the trailer for Downton Abbey below.
The series will be aired every Thursday at 11pm starting September 8th on Diva Universal. It looks soo good, I'm loving it already.
