Immerse yourself in Julian Fellowes' multi-award-winning drama. The full scripts of Series Three include previously unseen dialogue and drama. Downton Abbey has become a national phenomenon and the most successful British drama of our time. Created by Oscar-winning writer Julian Fellowes, the first series delighted viewers and reviewers alike with stellar performances, ravishing costumes and a gripping plot. Set in a grand country house during the late Edwardian era, the third series of Downton Abbey follows the lives of the Crawley family upstairs and their servants downstairs as they cope in the aftermath of the Great War. The Series 3 scripts give readers the opportunity to read the work in more detail and study the characters, pace and themes in depth. With an introduction and commentary from Julian Fellowes, this is an invaluable insight into how he researched and crafted the world of Downton Abbey.
`Downton Abbey is what television should be.' Simon Heffer, Telegraph `The sets and costumes are ravishing, the attention to detail painstaking and the performances are brilliant. But above all, it's a cracking story.' The Times `A sumptuous, accomplished piece of television' Guardian `Sundays won't be the same without Downton: In an age of patronising, tacky television, Downton Abbey was a true British gem.' Max Hastings, Daily Mail商品の説明をすべて表示する
This is very good & marvelous book! If you are (Japanese) Junior High-School Students, it is possible to understand. This book will bring you many great opportunities to learn English, Gentlemen & Lady attitudes, Europe histories, also how to work with your team members through entertainment..
Mr. Fellowes is not as aged as I but his remembrances of the past culture are superb. My father was born in the States in 1894 with several sisters to follow, most living until the 1970s - 1990s. It just amazed me that a phrase or passage or a footnote rang a faint bell for me. I can see the attitudes from my English ancestors coming through my family's behavior.
It is a delight to ready the footnote for more information and the reason why he chose to name or use a character in a certain way. I was reading very quickly at first but as I drew toward the middle I realized that I was coming to a very sad part of this series. I slowed down and tried to savor every scene until the one that just tore all Downtown fans into pieces....that is, Matthew's death.
I recommend all of these Script books to anyone who loves to read and learn. Thank you, Mr.Fellowes for your making these available to an adoring public.
July 2016: will there be more scripts books released? I am so looking forward to them.
Whether it's the books themselves or the books-reviewing these books, we found them to be most interesting. Not only are they a look back at the fascinating past when real wealth was accompanied by a lifestyle of pure fun and games, but the stories themselves are filled with intrigue and love-hate relationships for the wealthy subjects and for the huge staff of people working at all level of the working classes that existed then. They truly carry you back on a "magic carpet" type ride to the past. Read one of the books and you'll find yourself wanting more, which thankfully exist in more books in the series.
