Downton Abbey and Poldark

I’m a little behind, but I finally went to see the Downton Abbey movie and caught up with the final season of Poldark as well.  Both British historical dramas and both dear to my heart and I was not disappointed with either one.

The Downton Abbey movie was two hours of sweeping English countryside views, familiar characters and just enough drama to turn a television show into a movie.  The main plot point is a royal visit to Downton by the King and Queen, but there is a lot more that happens around this event. Though set two years after the series ended, almost everyone is back and storylines effortlessly continue with a few new surprises, both happy and sad.  It is written by the series creator and it is obvious he knows the characters very well.  If you are a Downton Abbey fan, you will love it.

Poldark started on PBS Masterpiece a few weeks ago, but Sunday morning I watched the first two episodes of Season 5 and can’t wait for the rest.  The espionage sub plot is really interesting and Ross is the perfect reluctant spy.  Ross and Demelza are happy at the moment, but I fear (because it’s Poldark) that storms are coming.  There is a sweet new romance blossoming for Geoffrey Charles and some new dastardly characters up to no good with the help of George Warleggan.  This is a series I will be sad to see end.

Happy Monday!


  1. Oh, British drama! Always makes my heart sing! And glad you finally saw the Downton film. Those of us who loved the series were not disappointed!

  2. I've never heard of Poldark! And I've been looking for a new show to binge!

  3. I went to see Downton Abbey last week and loved it. I felt like they left it open for another movie and that made me happy!

  4. I don't watch either but I may have to check them out

    1. Downton is a favorite and worth watching, but Poldark is great too. Definitely watch the show before seeing the Downton movie - I think it’s a must or you will not enjoy it.

  5. I haven't watched either but they sound wonderful. Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!
