It pays equal attention to the aristocrats and servants who work in their service. Over the seasons, the series incorporates many elements borrowed from soap opera.

The success

The series has won numerous awards (general quality, acting, script, costumes, music). Became addictive in the United States, Downton Abbey has sparked an unusual number of derivative products for a British television series. It was an important moment in the renewal of the genre of historical television series in the early 2010s.
