I love Downton Abbey.
And as such, I have posted about them, um, a few times. But I just unearthed newly released images from the two hour Christmas special airing in the UK on December, 25, 2011.
They are so lovely and I just had to share! Can't wait to see what happens...I will post link as soon as available.
For those of you unfamilar with this period drama series it was written by Julian Fellowes (The Young Victoria, From Time to Time, The Importance of Being Earnest).
The story centers around the aristocratic lives of the Earl and Lady Grantham, their three daughters and their servants during the early 1900's.
This series has become the most successful British costume drama since 1981's Brideshead Revisited and in 2011 it entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the 'most critically acclaimed television show' for the year, becoming the first British show to ever win this accolade. (wikipedia)
If you haven't seen this series yet, I would suggest you sit back, grab a favorite hot beverage and proceed down the country lane that leads up to Downton Abbey. I think you just might enjoy yourself.
Below are more images from the Christmas special and then more from the 2nd season (that will be airing in the States in January on PBS or, if you just can't wait (like me) you can click here to see them online.

Bit of fun on the set :)
