News & Interviews for Downton Abbey: Season 6
It's really well-crafted. I mean, it's well-written. The production is lavish. The costumes are amazing. Watching these episodes, you're kind of transported back to a time with a lot of turning points for modern society.
Downton Abbey has always been television to luxuriate in, and its final season will delight fans with more of the same superb production quality and writing that makes the aristocratic Crawley family feel part of our own.
The final Downton season is satisfying, engaging and nostalgic. And if there is, at some point, a movie? You know we'll be watching.
Beautiful, elegant final ride, full of love and nostalgia and joy. The only way to go...
Downton simply continues its sharp observations of human behavior among fundamentally decent people, as animated by some of the loveliest faces, voices, and cinematography on the tube, it still has much to offer.
I'm happy to report (without any spoilers) that it remains what it has been for years - a pretty melodrama, whose characters we've come to know well, grounded in a thought-provoking historical moment.
Downton Abbey isn't trying to change the face of television, so let's just enjoy the loveliness while it lasts.
he nation will no doubt be grateful to see its favourite escapist fantasy deigning to engage with our piffling contemporary anxieties.
The acting. The set design. The costumes. The sharp writing. The attention to detail. All of it came together in a way that made this show more than just another period drama.
Certainly Downton had its soapy moments. But for most fans, I don't think this was the series' chief appeal. Rather, it was the moments of kindness.
The Earl of Grantham having made a tectonic plate shift in his mind set over a myriad of matters. He's up to speed with the changes of the century, but are the fans, as we prepare to say our final good byes?
Audience Reviews for Downton Abbey: Season 6
Aug 12, 2020The good news is, Fellowes finally came up with new ideas for subplots after the show's repetitive fourth and fifth seasons. Individual episodes are therefore more interesting to watch in its final season. However, at its terminus, the show's weaknesses at presenting satisfying plot and character arcs are as glaring as ever. Fellowes seems to think Michelle Dockery's Lady Mary character is the star, so we are subjected to yet more bland romance between Dockery and a generic suitor, the culmination of which takes up an entire episode. The relationship between the family and the servants becomes so close it's like Fellowes isn't even trying to pretend there were strict class boundaries in this period anymore. Supporting characters like Thomas Barrow (Rob James-Collier) and Joseph Molesley (Kevin Doyle) are the only who seem like complex and interesting people, though the former's vast changes in personality every season are bound to induce whiplash. This season he gets another tragic subplot, which if you were to look at individual scenes would make you think James-Collier was acting in a totally different, superior show, but which ends in a way that is cliche and rushed. Maggie Smith is of course great, but the novelty of a character who mainly spouts off witticisms has died after five seasons. The good news is, Laura Carmichael as the "forgotten middle sister" Edith outshines her older sister Mary, and Fellowes seems to recognize this, by giving her a solid subplot and romance. The bad news is, Fellowes seems to think EVERYONE needs a romance subplot (except of course the tragic gay character), so a lot of time is wasted pairing up characters who have little in common except age. I don't totally regret watching this whole series, but I would not recommend it either. It started spinning its wheels halfway through its run, and this finale, while superior to the last couple seasons, isn't worth powering through to reach. I'm disappointed, because through it's entire run, I can never say the show rose above mediocre. Even the best actors are dragged down by the poor writing.
Jul 07, 2020An awesome finale of a great show.
Nov 20, 2019The best British melodrama series comes to an end. And with very satisfying conclusions for all of Julian Fellowes' beloved characters. This final season of the show was very compelling and funny, particularly the battle royale for the hospital affairs, which was a delight to witness. Finally the two daughters of the family find their right husbands and the servants downstairs get their deserved success. Thank you for all the laughs and the drama! It was the best!
Nov 13, 2019My favorite season! This show is perfection. The storylines, characterization, costumes, sets, etc. all beautifully done. Bravo!
Oct 25, 2017every charator has the story to tell.
Jan 05, 2017Excelente conclusión y personajes!!!!
Aug 13, 2016A beautiful English Series. Not for everyone's taste of course.
Jul 21, 2016While it does drag in a few spots, the final season is more than a worthy send off for the series, including some of the best payoffs in the series history, and a nice grand finale.
