Downton Abbey continues the saga of the Crawley family and their massive Yorkshire country estate in the kind of post-Edwardian England that can only exist onscreen. A visit from the Queen sets the servants running upstairs and downstairs in preparation, while the aristocrats work out their aristocratic problems. For many who enjoyed the immensely popular 6-season series, this will feel like a welcome homecoming. Series creator Julian Fellowes wrote the screenplay; Michael Engler, who directed four episodes of the show (including the Christmas Special!), takes up the megaphone again.
