Downton Abbey is a British period drama which the Seven network has acquired. It is the best drama to come out of the UK in years, having received rave reviews and incredible ratings which made it the most watched drama series in the UK since 2003. It is set to win a number of awards over the next year or two due to magnificent writing by Lord Julian Fellowes, who incidentally won an Oscar for Gosford Park, and the marvellous acting of the stellar cast including Academy Award winning Maggie Smith. The show became an absolute phenomenon when it aired in the UK last Autumn.
Does anyone know when Seven plans to show this absolutely astonishing drama series? It's a show one surely can not miss. I really hope they promote it well because I believe it's a show which could get a very good audience here.
