Downton Abbey premieres in Australia

Downton Abbey will debut on Seven in Australia,
beginning Sunday, May 29th at 8:30!

[Note for North Americans: Season 2 will air January 8, 2012 on PBS, Fall 2011 for UK]

Jessica Brown-Findlay in an interview, chats about filming the first season: "The scope of the story is so exciting and is set in such an amazing point in history. Their problems and their fears, and the things that bring them joy are exactly the same as those we have today. They have that same fear of being left behind, of breaking out from what their families and society want them to do. It is a human story as opposed to a story about a time." Read article

Here are 3 promo videos for Australian television. I'm excited for those who will be able to experience life with the Crawleys and the Dowager Countess! I do wish thought that they wouldn't market it as scandalous or "raunchy" as I don't think that's a fair description. While viewers should be forewarned that this isn't your typical period drama, I found it to be an excellent drama!

  1. Love Downton Abbey. You are right, although there are scandalous parts, it is not allll scandalous, and I wouldn't call any of it 'raunchy'. (silly girl who said that and producers who put it in the ad)

    I love that necklace and would love to see more of the Edwardian fashion come back into style.

  4. I live in Australia and a few of the 'raunchy' promos did put me off. I only started watching after a friend recommended it. Though i think to some extent those awful ads worked, its been really successful.

    The series has been so successful in Britain and in North America so I don't see why Seven had to emphasize the racier parts of the plot. Glad that it's been a smash in Australia as well!
