Downton Abbey: The Official Podcast is a brand new weekly re-watch podcast that is the place to be for fans of Downton Abbey in all its forms, from the television series to the upcoming film Downton Abbey: A New Era . Co-hosted by Rotten Tomatoes Awards Editor Jacqueline Coley and British broadcaster Anita Rani, Downton Abbey: The Official Podcast goes deep, starting with the iconic moments of Season 1 and taking fans all the way to the new film.
Set at the end of the roaring twenties, but with the shadow of political divisions beginning to build in Europe, we’ll explore the historical context that the characters of Downton find themselves in.
We’ll go behind the scenes with some of the most established members of upstairs and downstairs to discover how changes in society and culture have affected their characters in this new installment. We’ll quiz Downton’s historical advisor on the role of women, the writer on the twists and turns of the plot and what underlying historical moments will be responsible for reshaping the future of all.
Music by John Lunn
