If you're a fan of the series, the scripts contain interesting background and insight into Julian Fellowes' intent for specific scenes and characters as well as dialog that was edited out. He shares his feelings for the characters and the actors who play them. ( )

Julian Fellowes has given us an instant classic with his much beloved Downton Abbey. This volume shows us the script from Season One. It shows us what was shot on camera as well as what was deleted. Julian gives us little "methods to his madness" along the way, telling us about life at the time period as well as his ideas for the characters. The book is illustrated as well. A must for any Downton Abbey fan! ( )

The full scripts of award-winning Downton Abbey, season one including previously unseen material

Downton Abbey has become an international phenomenon and the most successful British drama of our time. Created by Oscar-winning writer Julian Fellowes, the first season delighted viewers and critics alike with stellar performances, ravishing costumes, and a gripping plot. Set in a grand country house during the late Edwardian era, season one of Downton Abbey follows the lives of the Crawley family upstairs and their servants downstairs as they approach the announcement of the First World War. Fellowes succeeds in not only entertaining his audience with a combination of sustained storylines and sharp one-liners but also in delivering a social commentary of British life. The scripts from season one give readers the opportunity to read the work in more detail and to study the characters, pace, and themes in depth. With extended commentary from Fellowes, highlighting key historical or dramatic details, this book gives invaluable insight, particularly for would-be screenwriters, into how Fellowes researched and crafted the world of Downton Abbey.
