Only ten days to go! Series 3 of
starts in the UK on Sunday 16 September - can't wait!
I've been re-reading my copy of "The World of Downton Abbey" (published by Collins). Not only does it contain lots of photos of the characters, but also goes behind the scenes to show some aspects of filming. There's also lots of good background information about the era covered by the programme - fashion, working in service, etc. It's a great book. If you are a fan of the programme then you will love it.
There's a Downton Abbey Facebook page which has lots of photos, interviews etc.
I've been watching Parade's End which is on BBC2, but find the characters totally selfish and uninteresting. Perhaps it will get better?!? It got some great reviews in the "quality" press, which probably just means that I'm extremely common because I'm not that keen on it.
I just enjoy a good old-fashioned story with a wonderful range of characters - that's Downton!
