News & Interviews for Downton Abbey: Series 06
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.
The final Downton season is satisfying, engaging and nostalgic. And if there is, at some point, a movie? You know we'll be watching.
The sixth and final season of the series delivers happy endings all around, as if rewarding viewers for their devotion to the lives of the wealthy and the service classes alike.
