I’m glad someone had the guts to try to adapt this novel and the smarts to make it a series.
What's on your mind?
Downton Abbey: The Exhibition is opening!
"In the exhibition, visitors get to tour the beloved fictional home of the Crawleys, complete with sets of Mrs. Patmore’s kitchen, Lady Mary’s bedroom and the dining room where the series’ formal dinners took place."
I noticed that |titles = had many entries for several characters that weren't really titles, so please move non-titles to the new |aka = field of the template.
See this change for an example:
See what we have so far at Downton Abbey movie. Some media outlets remain skeptical, but this has been the most official news about a potential movie.
Fellowes was not finished with DA and there were rumours about an upcoming movie, but it seems it could be a prequel... Anyone can confirm this?
Pros: Cora as central character, young Violet in her young sassy days
Contras: Fellowes' writing, not to see most of the actual characters (some of them weren't born)

We have moved to Belgium from the US and I would like to see the 6th season of Downton Abbey. Does anyone know when the series starts in Belgium and what station carries the series? Thank you!
Life imitating art, as Michelle Dockery's fiancé tragically dies of cancer.
It appears Lady Mary's tragic love life is not limited to on screen, and that Michelle may be as strong (in a good way) as her onscreen counterpart.
Tears as hundreds turn out at service to mourn Michelle Dockery's fiancé ahead of funeral service today following his death from 'rare form of cancer' at age 34
Wikia uses a ranking called "WAM score" for individual wikias. Downton Abbey just set its all time best ranking , as of this post, sitting at 54 from a previous best of 55. Way to go.
Many of you may already know, but there are Wikia apps based on this wiki for both Apple iOS and Android. So if you have a smartphone, check them out. I tried to make them look decent, but more feedback is good. Some of the screenshots in the stores for the app are silly (Downton Abbey Walkthroughs!) because the app is based on games stuff.
Hey guys :)
Just happened by and noticed that the front page was a little ... off. Apparently in this edit from 2012, Tycio, who may or may not be the wiki's founder, Will1996000, introduced a little bit of code without comment to make it explicit who had founded the wiki. And though that notice was eventually taken down, the code which created it remained.
This forced the content on the front page to begin at the bottom of the advert on the right — and, thus, a huge gap on the top of the page. I trimmed the last vestige of that edit away today — and the page snapped back into a "normal" text flow.
Hope you guys don't mind. If you do, leave your comments below. :)
Thanks to work and badgering by TimeShade, the wiki front page now has a twitter feed for @DowntonAbbey!
Have not seen this posted yet. From:
Secrets, scandal and a shaking of the ground. The doors of Downton are set to open once more on Sunday September 21st at 9pm and you've been cordially invited to share a first look at what lies ahead.
Of interest to Downton fans on the US East Coast, the Winterthur museum in Delaware has an exhibit on "The Costumes of Downton Abbey". It opened March 1 and runs through January 4, 2015.
