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 Spoilers: Is the Dowager being killed off? & guess which star could be headed for the US…
With the end of Downton Abbey creeping closer by the day, the thought at the top of all fans minds is just what sort of bang the show will exit with. So far we have been promised the best and most dramatic series of the hit ITV period drama to date, but with great drama comes the possibility of death and morning. Nobody enjoys it when a Downton Abbey character is killed off (and none of us are completely over the series of death back in 2012) but we suppose seeing as the show will be ending fore
Ah, we love a bit of good news here at Unreality TV, and there is no news better than hearing that one of our TV sweethearts has got engaged… Which is precisely what Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery has done as she has become engaged to her boyfriend, John Dineen, and according to The Daily Mirror newspaper, she can’t help showing off her diamond ring to everyone!
Downton Abbey: The Queen honours Dame Maggie Smith (again) and Michelle Dockery says Mary is a Soprano!
We all love Dame Maggie Smith, but it has (arguably) been her role in Downton Abbey which has seen her become admired by pretty much the entire planet, so no wonder the Queen wants to honour her – again! The Dame part of her name gives away the fact that this is not the first time Maggie has been given the royal nod from Her Majesty, and she was appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) in the 1990 New Year Honours for services to the performing arts.
As if having a feature length Downton Abbey on Christmas Day wasn’t exciting enough, it’s been revealed today that the show is now going to release its very own Christmas album too!
Downton Abbey Series 5 Spoilers: Michelle Dockery on Edith rivalry, Matthew’s death & sex before marriage (INTERVIEW)
One of the big cliffhangers from the last series of Downton Abbey was the love life of Lady Mary, which saw her offered two marriage proposals. As we have previously reported, Mary decides to take the somewhat modern path of trying out a relationship before marriage, and arranges a dirty weekend away with one of her suitors in the first episode, which Unreality TV were lucky enough to watch at the new series’ press launch last month.
We can’t get enough of all the excitement building over the new series of Downton Abbey, and it seems that the cast feel the same as they have all been out in force to talk about it! The fourth series of Downton left us with a few unanswered questions, and a few hints of happier times for the future – None more that the love life of Lady Mary Crawley (Michelle Dockery).
The wait for the fifth series of Downton Abbey is nearly over, and in the build-up to this glorious event, some of the show’s cast have been sharing some series secrets that we thought you might be interested in! When we left the great estate at the end of the show’s run last year, the Grantham family were just starting to come to terms with the loss of Matthew Crawley, and his widow Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) even had two marriage proposals to choose from, But which – if e
That Mrs Patmore has a lot to answer for, given that it’s been reported today that the cast of Downton Abbey have been told to lose weight ahead of the new series, and just to make sure they do, the show’s bosses have apparently reduced their snack time! According to The Sun newspaper, all of the show’s cast – and even Downton writer Julian Fellowes – are “addicted” to the sandwiches that are provided for them to munch on between takes during filming
Downton Abbey Series 5 Spoilers: Michelle Dockery insists she’s going nowhere, but who may be killed off?
With excitement growing for the new series of Downton Abbey – which is due to hit our screens this autumn – rumours about departures and returns among the show’s cast members have been rife… But one person who is definitely not going anywhere is Michelle Dockery, despite rumours to the contrary that have surfaced in the media of late.
Downton Abbey Series 5: New pictures showing Tom Branson, Thomas Barrow, Lord Grantham & Lady Mary – In a graveyard!
We couldn’t be more excited if we tried – The fifth series of Downton Abbey has begun filming! At least we can rely on one British television institute to work like clockwork when it comes to the production of each new series, and yet again Downton Abbey has not let us down.
Good news for Downton Abbey fans – Michelle Dockery has revealed that she has no intentions of leaving the show! Dockery has kept us all entertained playing Lady Mary in the hit ITV period drama since it first began back in 2010, but the future of her character was thrown into uncertainty in 2012 when, on Christmas Day, her on-screen husband, Matthew was killed off!
Downton Abbey: Producer discusses end of show and Michelle Dockery thinks the amount of spoofs is funny!
Since Downton Abbey first appeared on our ITV screens back in 2010 it has always been known that there has to be a time limit on it. After all if we followed the lives of those living in the great estate from the 1920’s where it currently is, up until recent times, it would be less appealing as a period drama, and more like a soap!
In my review of the last episode of Downton Abbey series four I commented how I felt Julian Fellowes was holding back the conclusion of a number of his storylines. Indeed, the ambiguous nature off Bates’ story and the references to Cora’s family led me to believe that ITV had more invested in tonight’s episode than they did the series itself. To an extent I was right as tonight’s special featured an all-star cast and many definitive conclusions to stories. In addition it
Downton Abbey Episode Eight: Death, Proposals and Pigs are the highlights of an underwhelming series finale
One of my main issues with series four of Downton Abbey has been the over-abundance of needless subplots throughout the past eight weeks. While Mary, Edith, Anna and Bates have been well-served with gripping stories this series, there have been others that have been less lucky. A prime example of this has been the below-stairs romance between the younger servants which hasn’t interested me one iota, while Bates’ old music hall companion reappearing really didn’t go anywhere. I
