    Review quote
    Acclaim for "Downton Abbey" "This extraordinary upstairs-downstairs drama, written by Oscar-winning 'Gosford Park' screenwriter Julian Fellowes, is a dramatic, intelligent, soapy, comic, and wise piece of work." --"The Boston Globe" "There is no mystery about the potency of this series, slathered in wit, powered by storytelling of a high order." "--The Wall Street Journal" "Possibly the best show of the year...'Downton Abbey' is all that 'Upstairs, Downstairs' was, and more." "--The Los Angeles Times"
