Girls Write Out
Sunday, February 19, 2012
It all started with Colleen. (Oh, if I had a dime for every time I've said that.) She was raving about it. Then a few days later, people on my writer's loop were raving about it. When someone at my publisher started talking about it, I knew I had to give it a try.

"It" is Downton Abbey, a PBS series/drama about a wealthy family and their servants set in turn-of-the-century England. The writing is splendid, the characters engaging, and the cinematography beautiful. I began watching online to catch up--it's on season 3 on TV. One season, and I was hooked.

I should warn you, watching a whole season in one weekend will add an English accent to all your inner dialogue. If you're willing to risk that (and who isn't, given the lovely sound of the English accent?), go ahead and dive into this engaging saga. Just make sure you clear your calendar because you won't want to stop! Check it out here.

Downton Abbey is just the latest in my love affair with British television. Foyle's War, Midsomer Murders, Lewis, Jeeves and Wooster, Doc Martin, Touch of Frost, Sherlock, and various versions of Jane Austens works have been enjoyed in our household.

I need to check out some of these, Barb. I haven't watched much British television.

Many of my friends are raving about this show also, but I need to start watching it online to catch up! Glad to hear your endorsement of the show, Denise.
