Downton Abbey: Season 1

Set in England in the years leading up to the First World War, this sumptuous costume drama, written and created by Academy Award winner Julian Fellowes tells the story of a complicated community. Downton Abbey - a sprawling, lavish Edwardian mansion and park nestled in the lush North Yorkshire landscape - needs an heir. It has been home to the Crawley family for many generations, but it is also where their servants live, and plan, and dream, and they are as fiercely jealous of their rank as anyone. Pitting hundreds of years of British aristocracy against the tides of social upheaval and technical progress, under the looming shadow of World War I, will the fate of Downton and its family - above and below the stairs - be resolved? Or will life be altered so dramatically that its master no longer matters? Includes all seven episodes from Season One.
