As we reported earlier, HBO fantasy drama Game of Thrones were the big winners at last night’s Emmys, and in walking away with a whopping 12 awards, they took the record for most wins from NBC’s The West Wing. However, unfortunately, British drama did do nearly so well, and despite high hopes of a gong or two, ITV period drama Downton Abbey left empty handed, which is perhaps surprising given the huge following the show – which is currently airing its final series – has in the States. Bu

As we reported to you this morning The sixth and final series is set to feature a very important historical figure when it hits our screens this autumn, and now the Sun newspaper claims to know who! It was Hugh Bonneville, the actor who plays head of the house Lord Robert Earl of Grantham, who told Unreality TV and other journalists during a Q&A session held after a special press screening of the first episode of the new series last week, that we could expect to see an appearance from a very

Downton Abbey Spoilers: Gareth Neame & Liz Trubridge talk MOVIE & Baftas (INTERVIEW)

Yesterday the cast and crew of Downton Abbey came together for the press reveal of the first episode of the new series, the final one ever. As well as the absolute privilege of getting the first ever glimpse of the new series, Unreality TV were also lucky enough to be included in a press conference with some of the main players from the hit ITV period drama, which began with show producer, Gareth Neame, addressing the audience to summarise just what this landmark series had meant to him: “Juli

Guess who’s returning to Downton Abbey for final series!? Swoon!

The end is nearly nigh for the cast and crew of the most popular drama of this century, Downton Abbey, as they prepare for their beloved show to come to a final end. As hard as it will be for fans across the globe to say goodbye to our favourite aristocratic family, imagine how hard it will be for the actors who star in it to say goodbye to their characters, and each other. This prospect has been captured quite beautifully by one of the show’s leading ladies, Michelle Dockery, as she share

Downton Abbey Spoilers: Cast bid emotional farewell as Hugh Bonneville causes havoc!

The end of an era is fast approaching as we sit back and prepare to say a final farewell to Downton Abbey this autumn. And if you thought that such an occasion will hit you hard, imagine  what the poor cast are going through as they pack up and leave Highclere Castle for the very last time! Well, this is precisely what they have been discussing in a recent interview with the Sun newspaper in which Hugh Bonneville, the actor who plays Lord Grantham, the head of the Abbey household, is quoted

Downton Abbey 2015: Julian Fellowes addresses THOSE multiple deaths rumours!

downton abbey christmas special 2014 (18)
When it was announced earlier this year that hit ITV period drama Downton Abbey was set to end after its next series, inevitably there was much talk of how it would end… Would the Grantham family and those below stairs simply be left to it, all alive and well? Or would there be a hugely dramatic finale in which major characters died? Well, while we would imagine the temptation to pull in record telly crowds by staging some hideous tragedy that wiped out the Grantham family and all of their

Downton Abbey The Musical to keep the period drama alive?

Fans of ITV period drama Downton Abbey were of course disappointed to hear that – as had been rumoured for months – the upcoming new series of the Julian Fellowes penned show was to be its last. However, no sooner had that news landed than fans of the show were handed something of a consolation prize when it was rumoured that a Downton Abbey film may go into production in the next year or so, but despite frequent headlines in the press insisting it’s going to happen, no firm plans have as

A Downton Abbey movie IS in the pipeline then? Julian Fellowes confirms plans?

With the final scenes of the last ever series of Downton Abbey having been filmed, all thoughts have now turned to just what the sixth chapter of the hit ITV period drama will have to offer. And, despite the fact that we have been sort of promised a happy ever after with no favourites perishing in the final episode, we aren’t stupid enough to believe that this will 100% be the case. After all, everyone knows the best way to go out is with a bang. But the show’s executive producer, Gare

Dame Maggie Smith is glad Downton Abbey is over! Here‘s why….

While the rest of us silently mourn the fact that this autumn’s sixth series of Downton Abbey will be the very last, there is at least one person who is pretty glad it will soon be over. One of the biggest charms of this now iconic ITV period drama is its attention to detail, in particular the ever changing fashion in which the Grantham daughters have embraced series after series as the show travelled from the 1910’s through to the roaring 20’s. But, while Lady Mary (Michelle Docke

Downton Abbey: Hugh Bonneville has “no idea” how show will end as Julian Fellowes hasn’t even written it yet!

As soon as it was announced that this year’s sixth series of Downton Abbey would be the very last, all minds turned to just how the epic period drama would be brought to an end. But with filming for the new series well underway we are still none the wiser, and we aren’t the only ones! Hugh Bonneville, who plays head of the household Lord Robert Grantham has revealed that not even he knows what is in store for the big finale as he claims that the show’s creator and sole writer, Juli

Downton Abbey’s Joanne Froggatt to play a serial killer in ITV’s Dark Angel!

As soon as news hit earlier this year that the next series of Downton Abbey would be the last, we could only imagine how quickly the stars of it reached for their CV’s. And considering that Downton Abbey has churned out some of this country’s best talent in the world of acting, it is no surprise to hear that they are getting their hands bitten off! Of all the ridiculously talented performances to look back over, Joanne Froggatt’s harrowing portrayal of her character, Anna Bate̵

Matthew Goode leaves The Good Wife! No more Finn Polmar?

The Good Wife - Matthew Goode
Fans of CBS drama ‘The Good Wife’ were just dealt another big cast blow, which follows on from the news that Archie Panjabi (Kalinda Sharma) is leaving the show. The drama is now losing yet another cast member as, according to a new report by TVLine, Matthew Goode (Finn Polmar) will not be returning to the show as a series regular for the show’s upcoming seventh season, which is expected to begin airing on CBS this Autumn. But Matthew’s departure may not come as such a big surprise for

Downton Abbey Series 6 Spoilers: There is a wedding! But who gets married?

We were already super-excited when filming for the new series of Downton Abbey started, but since we were told that this would be the last ever series, we have been on the edge of our seats wondering just what farewell treats we will have in store. Fans of the hugely popular ITV period drama will know that at the end of the last series Mr Carson (John Carter) finally popped the question to housekeeper Mrs Hughes (Phyllis Logan). Of course she said yes, leaving us all waiting excitedly for the ne

Downton Abbey writer Julian Fellowes returning to ITV with new period drama, Doctor Thorne!

We are starting to understand now just why Julian Fellowes was too busy to keep Downton Abbey going any longer than series five as he has been linked to yet another period drama. Lord Fellowes, who is the sole creator and writer of ITV hit Downton, announced that this year’s series would be the last as he had embarked on a new US period drama, The Gilded Age. But it would seem that Fellowes isn’t done with the UK, or ITV in fact, just yet as he has yet another period drama in the mak

Downton Abbey: A younger Lord Grantham & Dowager Countess to feature in The Gilded Age?

Ever since it was announced that this year’s series of Downton Abbey would be the very last, there has been much speculation about whether or not a spin-off series would follow. This idea was supported by the show’s only writer, Lord Julian Fellowes, who even hinted that somewhere down the line we might see our favourite aristocratic family catapulted in to the 1970’s! This, coupled with the hint of a follow up film in the pipelines too, made us all quietly optimistic that this
