Downton Abbey promo!

4 Sep

We’ve finally got our first Downton Abbey teaser! I’ve been obsessively reading all the articles that have come out about the second season so I am very excited to finally get to see some of it. And it looks so good!

If anyone isn’t watching this show, start now. The first season is only seven episodes long plus it’s all on netflix/available to rent so it’ll be easy to catch up! If you’ve never heard of it, it’s a really excellent British period drama about this aristocratic family and their servants, as well as the heir to the estate and his mother. It gets into gender issues and class issues and historical issues, plus there’s intrigue and romance and Dame Maggie Smith and all that good stuff. What more could you want? It also covers a lot of time: the first season starts with the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 and ends with the start of World War One in 1914. The second season is going to cover the whole War. And it’s seriously so, so good–all the critical acclaim is not misplaced. It’s coming back here in January, but it’ll be back in Britain on September 18. Do with that information what you will!
