About Downton Abbey section title

Downton Abbey is a British period drama that won a Golden Globe for best drama mini-series in 2012. It begins in pre World War I England. Each series will span several years, with the second series set to take place during and after World War I, and the third series to take place at the beginning of the 1920s.

Downton Abbey details the trials and tribulations of a family of nobility living on an estate called Downton Abbey, run by matriarch Violet Crawley, her son Robert Crawley, and his American wife, Cora. It also follows the lives of the servants on the estate, such as butler Mr. Carson and head housekeeper Mrs. Hughes.

Marriage and inheritance starts as a huge focus on the show, as the first season focuses heavily on Lady Mary Crawley's search for a suitable husband and her love for her distant middle-class relative, Mathew Crawley, who also happens to be a likely heir to the Downton Abbey estate and the title of Earl that comes with it. The second series focuses on the events leading through World War I. The third series follows turmoil surrounding the decline in the fortunes of the estate and the changes in the new decade. We also learn more about Cora's side of the family. The fourth series concerns Lady Mary's attempts to overcome her grief at the death of her husband at the end of Series Three. It also features the first depiction of a "coming out" at a London Season, with the debutante in this case being Lady Rose Aldridge (née MacClare). Series Five, the most recent instalment in the Downtonian franchise, sees marital relations between Lord and Lady Grantham strained by an art historian, and Charles Blake and Lord Gillingham's continued pursuits of Lady Mary. A recurring theme is that of remembrance for the Great War, as shown in Series Two.

Downton-xmas1

A Moorland Holiday, also known as the 2014 Christmas Special, is the one hour-and-a-half holiday fifth season finale. It first aired on the 25th December, 2014 on ITV in the UK. In the US, it first aired on March 1, 2015 on PBS.

Covering several weeks near the end of 1924,  it begins in the grouse season, and later moves on to Christmas.

Summary 

It's the early autumn of 1924 and Rose's father-in-law Lord Sinderby has rented Brancaster Castle in Northumberland and invited the Crawleys to a grouse-shooting party. However, the Sinderbys' butler Stowell has an axe to grind and a scandalous secret threatens to derail the holiday.

Back at Downton, the servants hold the fort and unlikely later-life romances abound, while Bates takes drastic measures to clear Anna's name as she faces an uncertain future behind bars. The seasons change and another Christmas is enjoyed at the Abbey, where a heartbreaking farewell and a joyful reunion take place.
