Description

Immerse yourself in Julian Fellowes' multi-award-winning drama. The full scripts of Series One include previously unseen dialogue and drama. Downton Abbey has become a national phenomenon and the most successful British drama of our time. Created by Oscar-winning writer Julian Fellowes, the first series delighted viewers and reviewers alike with stellar performances, ravishing costumes and a gripping plot. Set in a grand country house during the late Edwardian era, the first series of Downton Abbey follows the lives of the Crawley family upstairs and their servants downstairs as they approach the announcement of the First World War. Julian Fellowes succeeds in not only entertaining his audience with a combination of sustained storylines and sharp one-liners but also in delivering a social commentary of British life. The Series 1 scripts give readers the opportunity to read the work in more detail and study the characters, pace and themes in depth. With an introduction and commentary from Julian Fellowes, this is an invaluable insight into how he researched and crafted the world of Downton Abbey.show more
