A chronicle of the lives of the British aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in the early 20th Century.
Dame Maggie Smith (Dowager Countess Violet Crawley) and Dame Penelope Wilton (Isobel (Crawley) Grey) previously worked together in the film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2011) and its sequel The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) in roles very unlike their respective characters in "Downton Abbey".
Downton Abbey is intended to be situated in the York Plain of North Yorkshire - characters occasionally refer to Thirsk and Ripon as being local towns. However in scenes of the village streets of Downton, the buildings are made of sandy Cotswold stone (as found in Bampton, Oxfordshire where these scenes were filmed), unlike the darker types of stone that are generally found in Yorkshire.
