The Downfall Of Downton Abbey | Hugh’s Views & News

Nobody in the UK can have helped noticing or knowing that for the last eight weeks the final series of Downton Abbey has been screened at 9pm on a Sunday evening.

    Just realised I’ve answered your comment on About with the above answer!

  4. Just goes to show that I really should start using my glasses when reading blogs, Sarah. I’m delighted to have found this blog of yours as I absolutely love theatre, films and TV.

    I’m delighted to know that, Hugh. Yes, glasses. Bugbear of the rapidly ageing! I’m longing for my cataract operation which is set for the end of January. 🙂

    I only saw the first two seasons. But the costumes and sets were to die for. Mega hugs Sarah — and Hugh too.

    I make sure I get the DVD from UK in November every year so I can watch it asap – as usually in Australia in comes months after UK 😀 Love the series too

  9. I agree, Teagan. The sets and costumes are amazing. I only wish some of the storylines and plots in the series were the same. However, I’m still addicted to the show.

The Stuff They Won't Include in Any Tourist Guide: The Real England

The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
