Smallscreen - Downton Abbey

Click to view larger image

Lord Crowley sees his family heritage and stately home Downton Abbey as his mission in life. The death of his heir aboard the Titanic means distant cousin Matthew Crawley, a Manchester lawyer, suddenly is next in line and comes into the estate with his local activist and former nurse mother, who clashes with his lordship's conservative dowager mother. Marrying off the daughters is another concern. The servants have their own side stories and interactions too.
