Photos from Downton Abbey Screening

Here are some of the photos from the Downton Abbey screening held at GPB on January 5th, 2012.

Maggie Moments

While Maggie Smith is not listed first on the cast of characters for "Downton Abbey", she is probably our favorite cast member. Her talent has been a staple of stage and screen for decades, and she is one of seventeen actors to have won the "triple crown" of acting awards - an Oscar, Tony, and Emmy (one of her Emmy wins was for "Downton Abbey" last year). While many people remember her work in "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie", "A Room With a View", and "California Suite", a new generation grew to love her as Professor McGonagall in the Harry Potter movies.

How Downton Abbey Changed My Life

When Downton Abbey finished its run in March of 2016, a chapter of my life ended too. Before I became the Chief Blogger of the Desperate for Downton blog and hosted live online chats during broadcasts of the show, I was a mild-mannered Web Content Editor. I wrote and posted online copy in the silence and anonymity of my cubicle.

I fell in love with the show while binge-watching it during a three month stint on sick leave. Once I returned, my passion for it poured out in the posts of this blog.

Where You Can Watch Your Favorite Downton Abbey Stars On GPB

Miss your favorite Downton Abbey stars terribly? So do we! While you’ll have to wait for the rumored Downton movie to film and then hit screens before you can see them reunited, you can watch many of them separately on shows we’re airing soon.

Here’s a short guide to where you can watch your favorite Downton Abbey stars on our network.

Watch The Series Finale Of Downton Abbey Again Sunday At 9PM

On Sunday nights at 9 p.m., we usually watch Downton Abbey. We decided not to let that habit go just because we aired the series finale last week.

We’re throwing our own tribute to Downton Abbey Sunday, March 13 at 9 p.m. by airing the series finale again in all of its fun and glory. This is not just the encore of the final episode. This is a rebroadcast of the live finale event we hosted at GPB headquarters last weekend.

How A Downton Abbey Live Chat Turned Strangers Into Friends

It’s almost like going on a first date. You know what you have in common with your mystery guest, but you’re both nervous and excited about the prospect of hitting it off in person.

I might not be searching for a new partner, but on Sunday, March 6th I’ll be meeting many new faces for the first time. Faces whom, for the past four years, I’ve known only by screen names in our ”Desperate for Downton”chat room. But that’s not to say they’re complete strangers.
