Masterpiece Classic: Downton Abbey has now provided three seasons of riveting characters and stories. Season 1 introduced the Crawley family to millions of viewers all over the world. Dangerous jealousies and delicious ambitions painted a picture of the struggles of preserving a vanishing way of life. In Season 2, the Crawley’s and staff attempt to honorably prevail into a new era as the Great War fundamentally changes everyone and everything in Downton. Season 3 continues testing tradition, weathering wars, budding romances, and shocking betrayals. As the Great War continues, horrific battles are not only fought on the war front but also in the great cities and towns. Distinguished homes have been destroyed financially and psychologically, and while some in Downton fight at all costs to maintain home, Downton may not be excluded from destruction. Life becomes even more unsteady as the town morphs and grapples to find its place in this changing era.
