Downton Abbey

by Joseph M

Downtown AbbeyOne of my favorite TV shows is the British period drama Downton Abbey. Airing in the US on PBS as part of the Masterpiece Classics series, Downton Abbey follows the lives of an aristocratic family in England during the early twentieth century. The show is currently in its fourth season, which began earlier this month, and I’ve been eagerly awaiting each new episode.

If you are interested in Downton Abbey but haven’t seen the previous installments, DCPL can help you catch up. The library owns the first three seasons on DVD; click here to see a catalog listing.

Seen all the seasons, but still can’t get enough? The library also has a selection of books related to Downton Abbey including books that provided inspiration for the series as well as books inspired by the series. Take a look by clicking here.

DCPL has also been screening the first season of Downton Abbey in January. It’s still not too late to attend the last of these screenings. On Tuesday, January 28, we will be showing Season One, Episode 7 at the Tucker-Reid H. Cofer Library, at 1:00 p.m.

Joseph, we just love Downton Abbey at our house! The saga between Bates and Anna continues, and the nefarious antics of Thomas never ends. But the Dowager Countess of Grantham, Lady Violet Crawley, is our favorite!
