Downton Abbey

Do you love Downton Abbey too? 

(Note: this post was written in 2011.  The 2013 showing of Downton Abbey, Season 3 starts January 6, 2013 on PBS! Yippee!)

Set your televisions to record!  I just noticed that PBS will be airing the mini-series "Downton Abbey" on Sunday nights this month - starting tomorrow night!  It looks wonderful - a portrait of Victorian life with the clothes, characters and secrets that makes it a must see in my book. 

When I wrote earlier about my love of the British series, Foyle's War (you can read my post here) a lovely reader named Lillian thought that I would enjoy watching Downton Abbey.  I haven't had a chance to find it on YouTube as she suggested, and just happened to find it being broadcast on American television this week.  What luck. 

And won't the cold month of January be more fun with a mini-series to look forward to.  Everyone light the fire, get a cup of tea and meet me in front of the telly tomorrow night!

*P.S. This is a photo I took of Blemheim Palace in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds.  I took a guess that it would be a fitting image for this series and I was tickled to see that looks perfect!

I would miss some really good PBS series, if it were not for you, Anne. Thank you and I shall set my DVR to record!
