Downton Abbey has received critical acclaim from television critics and won numerous accolades, including a Golden Globe Award for Best Miniseries or Television Film and a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Miniseries. It was recognised by Guinness World Records as the most critically acclaimed English-language television series of 2011
So addictive. Unlike other dramas, you actually like most of these characters. Set in 1912, it follows the adventures and misadventures of the family of an Earl and their household of servants. A fascinating glimpse into the end of feudalism, and worth watching for the costumes alone.
Another example how great uk tv series are. Set in England in 1912 during the first world war, around the time the Titanic sunk. Its about a rich family and their servants (and their secrets) living in the countryside in Yorkshire. Amazing actors, fantastic scenery, great dialoges, moving stories. Season 2 has just started, but already a classic.
Most successful British costume drama since 1981.
Wonderful, one of the best series of last year, without any doubt. A perfect masterpiece. With all the qualities of British television tradition, great costume designs and sets. So classy and an amazing cast too (including, the one and only Miss Maggie Smith, an english goddess)
