Love, love , love “Downton Abbey!” Cannot wait for the next installment…looking forward to the redoubtable Dowager Countess and the lamentable Lady Mary…they are the shining stars of the show. Also enjoy the great supporting players that make this such riveting viewing…Carson, Anna, Mrs. Hughes, etc. Not too jazzed about the prospective suitors for the Widow Crawley though….Matthew is a hard act to follow. (Perhaps “Mr. Pamuk” had a twin brother that they could send her way????)

LOL the Britt accent is so garbled and unpleasant, to me..
I tried to watch it but to me its a soap for elderly people..

it does well, so many do like it and they enjoy it, just not for me 🙂

Have to say I really hope that they do not “remarry Mary” until Series 5…I am simply not bowled over by any of her perspective suitors, although of all of them I like Julian Ovenden the best…he was superb on “Foyle’s War.” I would much prefer they obtain another ” fair-haired honey” for the Widow Crawley in the future…someone more in the mold of Matthew…perhaps Douglas Booth or Rupert Penry-Jones!

That should be “prospective…” Spell check changed it…..

So very true! It’s as if one were actually present in that long-departed world of elegance…completely absorbing and all-encompassing! The beauty of each and every episode is absolutely breathtaking, and no matter how many times you watch them, they feature something new and intriguing to capture your imagination….a visual, verbal and musical treat for the senses!!!! I totally adore “Downtown Abbey!”

@Shay. Wonderful comment. In fact…it’s something I would’ve/could’ve written myself! LOL. Kudos for an incredibly spot on, eloquently stated critique!

@rebecca1…..Thank you for your gracious compliment, although as a fellow “Abbey” aficionado, I think you will agree that there are simply not enough superlatives in the English language to adequately describe the magnificence that is the show….it’s that special…and spectacular!!!! So cannot wait for the next series…tea and biscuits to the ready!!!!

There are tons of new chars on downton abbey. Only 1 black char. The rest are white chars. Yet not 1 new char is Indian despite abbey creator saying it would be realistic for this period piece to have Indian chars. Of course there are no chars of Asian ethnicity bec abbey needs abt 9 new white chars.

IT’S OFFICIAL: Downton Abbey The Movie To Go Into Production This Summer

The highly-anticipated and rumored revival of Downton Abbey to the big screen is on!  Production is slated to begin later this summer.

From what we understand, all of the original cast is set to reprise their signature roles in the motion picture, written by series creator Julian Fellowes.

Fellowes will also serve as the executive producer along with other ‘Downton’ notables behind the scenes: Gareth Neame, Liz Trubridge, and Nigel Marchant. Brian Percival is set to direct.  Percival also directed the pilot episode of the critically-acclaimed and beloved period soap opera series.

In a statement, Gareth Neame expressed: “When the television series drew to a close it was our dream to bring the millions of global fans a movie and now, after getting many stars aligned, we are shortly to go into production.  Julian’s script charms, thrills and entertains and in Brian Percival’s hands we aim to deliver everything that one would hope for as Downton comes to the big screen.”

Focus Features chairman, Peter Kujawski, shared: “Since the series ended, fans of Downton have long been waiting for the Crawley family’s next chapter. We’re thrilled to join this incredible group of filmmakers, actors and craftspeople, led by Julian Fellowes and Gareth Neame, in bringing back the world of Downton to the big screen.”

Downton Abbey ran for six seasons on PBS  and received 15 Primetime Emmy awards and 69 nominations.

Actress Joanne Froggatt, who plays maid Anna Bates, took to Twitter with much enthusiasm at the news: “Delighted to announce we’re getting the band back together! #DowntonMovie #DowntonAbbey”

So, thrilled to hear the Downton Abbey movie is happening? Comment below.

It looks like all of those earlier reports months ago about a production being put together for Downton Abbey: The Movie, may finally becoming to fruition. Numerous items detail that motion picture project is moving forward with production slated for sometime next year.

Michael Edelstein, president at NBCUniversal International Studios, told the AP: “We are working on getting the script right and then we’ve got to figure out how to get the (cast) together. Because as you know, people go on and do other things. But we’re hopeful to make a movie sometime next year.”

Currently, the cast and writer Julian Fellowes have been on hand at the Downton Abbey exhibition which debuted in Singapore. However, some notable members of the company seemed surprised by the news including Laura Carmichael (Edith): “Well, tell my agent, because we’re still waiting to know. We’re hoping that will happen soon.”

Variety reports that an NBCUniversal spokesman confirmed the studio hopes to put the movie into production in 2018.

The Downton Abbey exhibition however, is set to travel to the United States and Australia with dates to be announced. (more…)
