Historical accuracy and depiction of drama
Downton is applauded for its accuracy of historical facts and depicting events of glory in the past with full wisdom and knowledge. The audiences appreciate the makers’ efforts to disclose full facts of the history with the utmost care and gave them the treatment they deserved. For this reason, the audiences still miss Downton Abbey and wish for Season 7.
Downton Abbey was not only the most-watched series in PBS’s 45-year of reign; it was a broadly watched show by any measure. Downton Abbey dramatizes the lives of the aristocratic society and their interaction with their servants.
The British are entrenched in the class divide that forms the social norms, meanwhile, Americans dismiss this claim believing anybody can climb up the ladder of success.
Downton Abbey accentuates this class divide with the example of Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, an American scion married to Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham, whose estate is encountering a financial predicament in Downton Abbey Season 3.
However, Downton Abbey is not any soap opera. Julian Fellowes has ignited characters that on one hand tend to behave all good. Like, Anna the housemaid, or Bates the valet or Mrs Hughes the housekeeper. Or, behave pretty bad like Thomas a footman, or Sarah O’Brien a lady’s maid.
Undoubtedly, Downton presents an accurate sense of life in post-Edwardian England. The show takes place in an English estate, the fictional Yorkshire country that follows the trials and tribulations during the World Wars, which affect the high-born. Downton Abbey has amassed a ferociously loyal cult. And the fuss around Downton Abbey Season 7 is real.
