Roaring Downton


Season Four of Downton Abbey and All Things 1920s
Yes, loyal Downtonites, there will indeed be a fifth season of Downton Abbey, chronicling the adventures and misadventures of the Crawley family and their faithful staff downstairs. We can hardly wait to find out which of her suitors the widowed Lady Mary will find most suitable, or what Mr. Bates was really doing on the day that Mr. Green met his well-deserved end. And are Carson and Mrs. Hughes ever going to admit to each other what everyone else already knows?

Until then, you can revisit that much-vaunted time and place with our wide selection of dramatic, historical, and unabashedly Anglophilic books and DVDs. We have great BBC and PBS video productions, picture books that tour the grand estates of England, guides to walking the Yorkshire moors, snapshots of period fashion and pop culture, social histories of English manners (and comedies of manners), and memoirs from those who knew those times well.
