DOWNTON isn’t totally gone for the year! You had a taste of it following the last episode; now see the complete, one-hour MASTERPIECE special!
Go behind the scenes of the wildly popular MASTERPIECE CLASSIC series. This special reviews the action-packed storylines of the first two seasons of Downton Abbey. Relive pivotal moments from the series, and get insight into the characters from writer Julian Fellowes and the actors who bring Downton to life.
The actors talk exclusively about their characters and the gripping storylines, giving the audience a real insight into the romance and conflict portrayed in the series. There is also behind-the-scenes footage from key locations – the historic Ealing Studios in London where the ‘below stairs’ scenes are shot, and the fabulous Highclere Castle in Berkshire, site of most of the ‘above stairs’ scenes. Plus, there is a look at the filming of the dramatic opening of the second series, set during the Battle of the Somme and shot on location.
