Downton Abbey Series Finale Tonight

Standard

downton-abbey2

It’s time for Downton Abbey fans to say goodbye to the Crawleys’ aristocratic chronicles of this British historical drama!  We’ll miss the series’ characters of whom we’ve all grown so fond. Sunday evenings will become void as we miss the anticipated delight of immersing ourselves into their lives each Sunday night on PBS! Haven’t we all loved the family dynamics, the historical social change process, the setting, and the fashions of this bygone era? The friendship, loyalties, secrets, and realistic family issues have been the core of keeping us glued to this gripping dramatic series.  Many have ordered the DVD’s of the entire 6 seasons and will no doubt revisit them again. Keep your kleenex box handy, as the trailers have hinted that we’re going to feel emotional as we say farewell to the Downton Abbey series.

A TIMELY BOOK REVIEW

WHILE WE WERE WATCHING DOWNTON ABBEY

-A NOVEL   -By Wendy Wax

With the end of the Downton Abbey Series, it seemed an appropriate time to introduce fans who will be missing the series, to a book that centers around the show.  It is a light, humorous, tender read that encourages female friendship and bonding.   As four very different women (in various stages of life), find themselves connecting through the weekly screenings of Downton Abbey, hosted by the concierge of their apartment building. The story becomes one of risk-taking, friendship-making, and supporting one’s friends through the dicier, unpleasant hurdles of life.  You’ll enjoy the Downton Abbey connection, as it will probably encourage you to set up your own weekly screenings with girlfriends (and British refreshments), as well….

If you decide to check it out, click on While We Were Watching Downton Abbey  The book is entertaining and it will give you all kinds of ideas for how to further your entertainment of the Downton Abbey reruns.

  1. Found it so fascinating as the series starts 100 yrs back in time….and in that time we have come from phones being a frightening new tool to landing the rover on Mars and social changes that were unimaginable back then. We were so fortunate to have been alive in the latter part of this exciting century! Angelika Sent from my iPad

    • You are so right about that! We’ve experienced our share of change, so one can only imagine how the 100 year olds feel. I think the series portrayed these early changes so well!
