I absolutely love this programme. The incredible historic detail is stunning, both in the costumes, the house and the props, cars, horses, carriages etc. We have visited Highclere Castle and it is a stunning place, just right for this type of programme. The storyline is also magnificent, and is certainly going to get better now the second series has started. I think what it will show is the social history changes during that time. The war changed everything, and that class in the early 20th century started to change significantly including servants attitudes to what they could achieve, opportunities for women and the suffragettes, and men no matter which class fought side by side in battles. A masterpiece!
