Set in England in the years leading up to the First World War, Downton Abbey
tells the story of a complicated community. The house 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.
Some of them are loyal to the family and committed to Downton as a way of life,
others are moving through, on the look out for betterment or love or just
adventure. The difference is that they know so many of the secrets of the
family, while the family know so few of theirs.
But for all the passions that rage beneath the surface, this is a secure
world, serene and ordered, and, at first glance, it seems it will last forever.
Little do they know, family or staff, that the clouds of the conflict that will
change everything are already gathering over their heads.
