You can re-watch one of television’s all-time greatest shows every week on Arizona PBS.
“Downton Abbey” returns every Saturday night at 9 p.m. on Arizona PBS (8:30 p.m. on Sept. 22) for an encore presentation of seasons 1 and 2 this fall (in chronological order).
Created by Oscar-winning writer Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park), “Downton Abbey” depicts the lives of the noble Crawley family and the staff who serve them, set at their Edwardian country house – the Highclere Castle – in 1912. The Titanic has just gone down in the north Atlantic, taking with it the two male heirs to Downton Abbey, whose current Lord Grantham has only daughters—albeit marriageable ones. His nearest male relative is a handsome lawyer bachelor—living in Manchester, who soon learns the ropes of managing a sprawling country estate, with its army of devoted, sometimes bickering servants, its hunts, garden parties and sexual intrigues.
