Downton Abbey, the historical drama set in the fictional Yorkshire estate of Downton Abbey, deals with the Crawley family. The show is set in the pre-Edwardian era and had started off with the sinking of the RMS Titanic in their first season. Since then it has seen important world events acting as the backdrop for the drama to fold in the English aristocratic family.
Downton Abbey has had a successful run so far. It is one of the foremost British drama series and has an audience worldwide. It has received maximum nominations in almost all the tele-awards and has won awards like the Golden Globe Award for Best Miniseries or Television Film and the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Miniseries or Movie.
Downton Abbey Season 5 depicted the Roaring Twenties. Given the climate of those years, the plot of the series was also roaring and exciting. Although the start of the season was a little shaky, with fan-favourite, Matthew (Dan Stevens) unwell; it deed redeem itself by the end with the Christmas special, but left the viewers devastated by the death of the favourite son of the Crawley’s.
Downton Abbey Season 5 was high on drama with Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) meets another suitor while continuing to ignore romantic overtures by both Tony (Tom Cullen) and Blake (Julian Ovenden). It is only a matter of time before fans realise if this is a fling or ends in a relationship and subsequent marriage. Edith (Laura Carmichael) is hiding an illegitimate child, and it’s her child that Lord Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) has taken in under his care. Anna (Joanne Froggatt) is imprisoned for the murder of Mr. Green’s murder, but Bates (Brendan Coyle) is very confident that she will be out soon. He confesses to the crime he has no hand in, to save his wife.
