Downton Abbey  

This classic series is an in-depth look into the lives of the Crawleys, a British aristocratic family. Downton Abbey’s long-running popularity with its loyal fanbase is a testament to the fact that it’s the perfect blend of fun and fiction, with a generous dollop of period drama.   

  1. The cast has often mentioned that the costumes they don during the show are genuine antiques and date back to the 1910s and 1920s. As a result, they’re difficult to launder and often have a damp smell.   
  2. Queen Elizabeth II is an avid follower of the show. So much so that she has identified flaws in some scenes. She once pointed out that a World War I soldier was depicted on the show wearing medals that were actually awarded in World War II.   
  3. As per The World of Downton Abbey, the 2011 book by Jessica Fellowes, the show cost a whopping average of £1 million per episode to produce.  
  4. Anna Robbins, the costume designer on the show, said that her main source for clothes were from her trips to native Scotland where she’d often go to thrift stores and second-hand outlets for outfits. The jazzier costumes Robbins said she got from Paris. 

Alright folks you can watch the episodes of Downton Abbey exclusively on Netflix.
