<i>Downton Abbey</i> & the Roar of Women Rising
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Downton Abbey, either the series or the fictional estate, might seem like an unlikely incubator for 20th century feminism. But by the time the most popular series in PBS history wraps up this March, empowered women could be one of its strongest legacies. "If anyone hadn't realized it by now," says creator and executive producer Gareth Neame, "women rule the roost on this show. The men may think they do, but it's the women who decide almost all of what happens." He's got a good body of evidence to support that assertion. Dowager Countess Violet (Maggie Smith) is an iron pillar, and her friend Isobel Crawley (Penelope Wilton) has shown an equally strong will. Cora Crawley (Elizabeth McGovern), also known as Lady Grantham, often must steer her sometimes befuddled husband Robert (Hugh Bonneville) in the right direction. The Grantham daughters (above), born into a society where their sole duty was ornamental, all stepped out of that boring box. The late Lady Sybil (Je ...

It's no secret that "Downton Abbey" is one of the most popular shows on TV, and we watch it for a lot of reasons.

Check them out below: Robert Crawley, Hugh Bonneville Violet Crawley, Maggie Smith Cora Crawley, Elizabeth McGovern Lady Mary Crawley, Michelle Dockery Lady Edith Crawley, Laura Carmichael Lady Sybil Crawley, Jessica Brown Findlay Matthew Crawley, Dan Stevens Lady Rose MacClare, Lily James Anna Bates, Joanne Froggatt John Bates, Brendan Coyle Mrs. Patmore, Lesley Nicol Mrs. Hughes, Phyllis Logan Sarah O'Brien, Siobhan Finneran Daisy Mason, Sophie McShera Thomas Barrow, Rob James-Collier "Downton Abbey" airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on PBS.

'Downton' Cast On Mourning Matthew, Mary's Love Life And The End Of The Series
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Downton Abbey" returns to PBS for Season 4 on Sunday, Jan. 5, 2014, and the cast and executive producer Gareth Neame visited the Television Critics Association summer press tour to field questions on the hotly anticipated new season, which will see the Crawley family reeling in the aftermath of heir Matthew's (Dan Stevens) untimely death in the Season 3 finale. "Downton Abbey" Season 4 will span from February 1922 to spring/summer 1923, and Neame pointed out that a time shift will help both the characters and the audience get a little distance from the loss of Matthew: "I think all of us in a way, as viewers of the show, feel we’ve gone through a bereavement with the loss of Matthew, and it’s really nice to feel that we’ve gone through several months of coming to terms with that, and we are going to reconnect with these characters who have also had several months to deal with the immediate shock of that, so that both the audience and the characters have experienced some pa ...

Michelle Dockery, Downton Abbey Star, Flashes Sideboob at SAG Awards 2013
US Magazine - about 4 years
What would the Dowager Countess have to say about this? Michelle Dockery was among the select stars of Downton Abbey on hand for the SAG Awards 2013 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles Sunday, Jan. 27 -- where the BBC costume drama picked up the award for Best Ensemble, Drama. But it was the 31-year-old British actress' chosen dress of the evening that really stole the show: a vintage Chado Ralph Rucci black satin gown with sheer panels that displayed a shocking amount of "side boob." (Dockery also sported a chic new bob hairdo, and accessorized the look with black satin Elba pumps by Rupert Sanderson.) PHOTOS: What all the stars wore at the 2013 SAGs The star, who plays the more buttoned-up Lady Mary Crawley on the smash series, seemed unfazed by the exposure as she posed on the red carpet -- causing major melee among enthralled photographers clamoring for Dockery to pose for more shots. At one point, Dockery giggled over the commotion and gave her publicist a knowing loo ...

Maureen Ryan: The Case For And Against 'Downton Abbey'
The Huffington Post - about 4 years
This court will now come to order. In the dock today, we find "Downton Abbey" (Sunday, January 6 at 9 p.m. EST on PBS), a phenomenon whose popularity rivals that of Justin Bieber and "Homeland" put together. (If you get bored as you read this brief for and against the British import, you're allowed to wonder what "Homeland" would be like if Bieber guest-starred on it. You're welcome.) You probably won't be able to avoid the third season of "Downton," even if you'd wanted to, so we might as well review the show's strengths and sins together. Oh yes, there are sins to be found, or rather, a series of mostly avoidable mistakes that are almost up there with mistaking the shrimp fork for the dessert fork. I kid, because I know what "Downton Abbey" is -- it's unquestionably one of television's most contrived confections, and there's nothing wrong with contrivances as long as they serve a greater purpose. But what is that purpose, exactly? I wish I could ignore those ...

Who Should Die on ‘Downton Abbey’?
BBC Blogs- America - almost 5 years
Will the Angel of Death strike upstairs or downstairs? Get out your mourning clothes. Someone’s going to die on Downton Abbey. Rebecca Eaton, who as executive producer at PBS’ Masterpiece helps oversee the hit British TV series, revealed last week while at a local PBS fundraising event in Winter Park, Fla. that in Season 3, “Somebody will be born, and somebody will die, somebody pretty key in the cast, unfortunately, [is] not going to make it.” For more of Eaton’s remarks, click here. Which major character is going to expire in Season 3, which begins airing in England next fall and in the U.S. in January 2013? Eaton isn’t saying, and neither is anyone else attached to the production. Without being too morbid about it, here’s our highly speculative list of reasons that major characters should stay or go: UPSTAIRS:  Lord Robert Crawley (played by Hugh Bonneville) Live: He’s the show’s patriarch and voice of reason. Die: He kissed a housemaid in Season 2 and deserves to ...
