Even if serious issues are of course also dealt with in » Downton Abbey «, the cult series by Julian Fellowes and the accompanying film are of course one thing above all: wonderful escapes from reality, in which silver cutlery that is not perfectly polished on the banquet table is almost as dramatic as a real family quarrel, in which the daughter threatens to leave her noble family for a chauffeur.
The small and large dramas line up in «Downton Abbey» like the pearls on the necklaces of the Crawley ladies, and whenever too much melancholy threatens to arise, Lady Violet Crawley ( Maggie Smith ) cracks a bone-dry joke and everything is fine again – maybe not for the characters, but at least for the audience. You can watch “ Downton Abbey ”, the film sequel to the historical cult series “Downton Abbey”, this Sunday (March 13) at 8:15 p.m. on RTL.
