Downton Abbey. Season 2 [videorecording].

  Review by:  Lisa

Title:  Downton Abbey. Season 2 [videorecording].

Starring:  Brendan Coyle, Elizabeth McGovern, Hugh Bonneville, Joanne Froggatt, Maggie Smith, Phyllis Logan.

Collection:  Movies

Season two returns as the Great War rages across Europe, and not even the serene Yorkshire countryside is free from its effects. The men and women of Downton are doing their part both on the front lines and the home front, but the intensity of war only serves to inflame the more familiar passions of love, loss, blackmail, and betrayal.

Having enjoyed the first season of this fantastic show, I simply could not wait to watch what happened next in Season 2.   Without dropping any spoilers, I can say that the creators and cast have not missed a step.  The war offers a dramatic setting and catalyst for changes in the household and in the field.  This set also includes the critically and fan-acclaimed Christmas episode.
