Downton Abbey on Masterpiece

Period drama set in the English countryside, centered on the lives of the artistocratic Crawley family and their hierarchy of servants.

Downton Abbey

Accompanied by his mother, Isobel, presumptive heir and middle-class solicitor Matthew arrives at Downton. The transition to upper-class life proves somewhat disorienting for him while his decision to continue working doesn't sit well with the family. In other events, Mr. Carson deals with a blackmailer; and Isobel, a doctor's widow who once studied to be a nurse, ruffles Violet's feathers when she takes an interest in the local hospital.
