Joanne Froggatt, who plays the much-tested maid Anna Bates on Downton Abbey, stopped by Conan recently. And she revealed that when Kate Middleton visited the set, she accidentally cracked a dirty joke to the duchess.
Dan Stevens wasn’t killed off in an especially romantic way at the end of his tenure on Downton Abbey, and now it seems he may be in danger of death-by-monster-reptile. He has just been cast as Anne Hathaway’s ex-boyfriend in Colossal, a film about a woman who experiences a telepathic connection with a giant lizard.…
Compliments of PBS, we can now watch the trailer for the sixth and final season of Downton Abbey. But, to be honest, it’s a bit of a drag, and a familiar one at that.
Sadly, Downton Abbey will not stretch on long enough that we finally see the whole kit and caboodle sold to some aging rockstar. The show is giving it one more season—the sixth—and then calling it quits with a Christmas Day finale.
It's a big day for Anglophiles and aristocracy fetishists: Kate, Duchess of Cambridge (née Middleton), visited the set of Downton Abbey and met the cast, many of whom were (of course) in costume.
Gather ye razor-sharp witticisms while ye may, because it sounds like Maggie Smith is leaving Downton Abbey after next season.
Thanks to Netflix and PBS, I can feed my British pop culture addiction without booking a Virgin flight. But American television executives are determined to ignore this luxury and cook up watered down versions of international shows like no one's ever heard of Pirate Bay (RIP).
If you've watched Downton Abbey, you know romance has never really been Lady Mary's thing. *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT*
Well, this is cute: The PBS Kids cartoon Arthur, which has been on the air for approximately six million years, is doing an episode that riffs on Downton Abbey. It will be called "Fountain Abbey," and you can see a brief preview above. Way to keep it on-brand, PBS!
For the first time ever Lady Edith, Mrs. Patmore, and Mrs. Hughes played the notoriously crass game Cards Against Humanity and they had a blast.
In celebration of the premiere of the new season of Downton Abbey, a cake artist created a giant lifelike version of the Dowager Countess entirely out of delicious cake.
The Downton Abbey cast has gathered for a delightfully zany (British-humored) and very special Christmas short for the TV fundraiser Text Santa. With cameos by Jeremy Piven (Mr. Selfridge) and Absolutely Fabulous' Joanna Lumley, it pokes just enough fun at itself to remind you why you have spent hours watching rich…
During the final countdown of Mary and Matthew's courtship on Downton Abbey, I started screaming at my television for them to just get a room — hell, even a broom closet — so that they could FINALLY have the hot and heavy feel-up (or even just a prolonged under-the-table handholding!) that their yearning glances were…
The dog from Downton Abbey isn't being killed off because she has the same name as a terrorist organization, according to one of the show's stars.
Much like the British aristocracy, Downton Abbey is still doggedly hanging in there. Variety reports the
gorgeous, shameless costume pornography television show has just been renewed for its sixth season. Season five doesn't even debut stateside until January. But will the dog survive???
The Downton Abbey dog, Isis, might be written off because her name is the same as the bloody terrorist organization. The group famous for beheadings wasn’t around in the 1920s, when the series is set, but that hasn’t stopped other TV shows from editing their stories in favor of sensitivity.
Here's your exclusive look inside my personal TV watching habits: I stopped watching Downton Abbey in season three because I could no longer muster up any concern over whether or not a rich family lost one of their several mansions. That said, I will tune in for The Britishes, the new DirectTV/College Humor sketch…
Have you gone mad with the power to nitpick over centerpieces and passed hors d'oeuvres? Perhaps you'd like to integrate your monarchist leanings into your bridal ensemble. Or maybe you're just keen to cosplay your favorite Edwardian. Well, meet the man who'll happily sell you your very own tiara.
America, cool your jets because your enthusiasm is spooking the Downton Abbey cast. Yes, they are very charming but let's try to preserve some semblance of national dignity.
