  • Yes, we're a bit emotional too! Join us as we look back at the best bits from the show we've loved so dearly...

    We’re holding back the tears after last nights emotional Downton Abbey finale (don’t worry – we won’t give anything away for those who haven’t watched it yet!) We have loved, laughed and cried for six seasons with the Crawley family and their servants, and we simply cannot believe it has come to an end.

    Downton Abbey has taken us on an amazing journey from the sinking of the Titanic to WW1 to the Suffrage movements and the roaring Twenties, to the second world war. We’ve grown attached to Lord and Lady Grantham, their children, their love interests and of course, their faithful servants. And of course – one can’t forget Maggie Smith as the Dowager, who has been the ultimate source of witty one-liners and characteristic British humour.

    But Downton Abbey has not been limited to success in Britain – it has become a global phenomenon, as people the world over have been entranced by Britain’s aristrocratic history. Downton is not any old historical drama – right from the outset, it’s had fantastic storylines and hasn’t been afraid to explore potentially ‘taboo’ topics such as sexuality, rape and mental health.

    This fantastic series will be sorely missed, and so with bittersweet nostalgia, we take a look back at the very best bits from the entire series. These are the parts that made us smile the most, cry the most, or just made us shocked, angry or humoured.

    It’s been one hell of a ride!
