Downton Abbey - Letter D

ABC Wednesday - Letter D


DOWNTON ABBEY

My favorite show is DOWNTON ABBEY. It has taken Masterpiece Theater by storm. Maggie Smith plays Violet Crawley, Countess of Grantham and she is superb.  I don't know how I missed the first two seasons but when I discovered the series I watched season 1 and 2 on Hulu and then starting watching the current season on PBS.



People are copying the costumes in everyday life and this is set in the 1920's.




They now have a cookbook "Edwardian Cooking-80 recepies inspired by Downton Abbey's Elegant Meals" by Larry Edwards.  I'm ordering it for a friend for Mothers Day.

This past week I heard a news reporter announce which character she was from the show.

Today I found a quiz @http://www.weta.org/tv/picks/downtonabbey/quiz  to find out which character you are!!!!

Well, I turned out to be Robert, Earl of Grantham.

Catch the show on PBS on Sunday night if you like period shows with lots of drama!!
