And regarding Downton Abbey...I was surprised that this season was so short, just six weeks. Right now I am starting a trilogy called The Passing Bells by Phillip Rock that is supposed to be much like Downton Abbey. So far I agree....I can see the big manor house, the servants quarters etc in my mind because it is so much like Downton. So if you need a "fix" of English country manor life in the early 1900s this series of books might be for you. The trilogy had been out of print but was rereleased! Downton has caused all of us to yearn for a kinder gentler time.
