“The story of Downton Abbey began with a dinner and an idea. The idea quickly became a concept for a television series, which was snapped up by ITV,” according to author Emma Rowley of Behind the Scenes of Downton Abbey.
And the rest is history. Behind the Scenes is filled with gorgeous photos and engaging interviews with everyone who’s anyone involved with the production of this hit show. On-the-set stories and inside scoops from the show’s creator, Julian Fellowes, as well as producers, writers, creative team members, and actors provide fans with a glimpse into the making of the upstairs and downstairs life at Downton.
This companion book to the series dives deep into the rooms at Highclere Castle as well as the wardrobe choices, hair and makeup styles, props and even the appropriate automobiles for the era. All these elements come together to make an outstanding television series and reading this book feels like you are right there on set with Lord and Lady Grantham, Mrs. Hughes and even Mr. Bates. – Carole Rosner
