    This is a SPOLIER Podcast!
    Do NOT listen if you’re new to the show! This should be labeled as a strictly re-watch podcast. There are spoilers throughout from the very beginning. I would have given it 5 stars, but I found out about someone dying in the first few minutes! Now that I’ve finished the show, this is a fantastic podcast with interviews of the cast & crew.

    A question??
    Now that the whole series is available on Amazon Prime Video (and I think in Hulu) have you considered doing weekly recaps of each episode???

    Cozy podcast
    I was looking for a cozy British podcast and came across this one about one of my favorite shows. Great hosts and interviews!
    LOVED IT!!!!
    I think this movie was better than the first. I really appreciated your podcast. It gave me background to take better note of details you mentioned. So grateful you did not give away details, I won’t either. 👍😊

    Downton podcast
    I love Downton Abbey. My mother begged me to watch the show a few years prior. I remember paying no mind during its syndication. But she sat me down to watch it and I’m glad she did. We are now both huge DA fans. And we just saw the New Era the other night and it was beyond brilliant and a gorgeously shot film. Thank for this podcast.

    This is a great podcast. This can help people get to know the show and keep up with it. Well done.
  • breanna_michelle
    Exactly what DA fans needed!
    I love this podcast! As an avid fan, I’ve been waiting a long time for something like this, and it was well worth the wait!

    Get rid of her! her interview style is AWFUL and she asks the dumbest questions, “What do you love about playing your character?”

    Below stairs episode?
    Great podcast! My only question is what happened to the below stairs episode? It’s mentioned several times in the podcast, but it seems to have been skipped.
  • Tara Frost
    I truly love this podcast! I noticed episode 8 has been uploaded twice. Will there be an episode for Downstairs?

    I miss the show!!!
    This podcast is the next best thing to another season in the show. Love to hear from the cast and Mr. Fellows. I do wish you would close the podcast episode with the cast instead of just cutting them off. I love the show, love the podcast, the movies. Please: more Downton Abbey!!!!

    Episode 6
    I wish you hadn’t given away the ending with the conversation between Mary and Maggie. But I do love these podcasts!
  • Freddy Peterson
    Love Downton Abbey
    I was so glad to see this podcast pop up while I was going through my third (?) rewatch of the series in preparation for the movie. My major criticism of the podcast is the recycling of audio across multiple episodes. Why are they doing this? It’s a huge disappointment to see that a new episode is in my queue and it’s just a repeat of earlier material from other podcast episodes.

    Downton Abbey the BEST!!
    This is such a wonderful podcast. It reflects back to all the old episodes for the past 6 seasons and the movie. It actually gives a opening to A New Era. I can’t wait to see it. Thank you. Best series with so much compassion, love and morals of being human no matter what your stage in life.
    Can’t love this enough!
  • Kangaawesome!
    No, Mary Should NOT have an affair!
    Love the podcast and especially the film background. But, while it’s totally believable that Mary would flirt, but no infidelity. Henry doesn’t deserve that. So no, just no.
  • HappyDog!
    Old friends.
    Love hearing these. Wish they were longer and more of a in depth character arch dissection/discussion but they’re still very enjoyable.
  • The_lady_wallace
    It is the highlight of my week I love listening to the cast regale us with their experiences of this well written masterpiece.

    New Host Please!
    I am a die hard Downton fan and could’ve cried tears of joy when I discovered this podcast. Then I listened to it… I am not convinced the host has even seen a full episode of Downton, yet she exhibits an over the top “fan girl” persona that is quite embarrassing and very cringe worthy. I find myself repeatedly feeling like she is giving all Americans a bad reputation in her interactions with the cast with her word choice and incessant rambling. The minds behind this podcast could take a lesson from The Gilded Age podcast. Beautifully and artfully executed!

    Like. Literally
    The subject matter gets 5 stars but like, I really wish, like, the use of “literally” and “like,” in like, literally every other sentence could like, be literally cut by 90%.
  • StephWhitt
    So thrilled for this
    I miss Downtown! This is wonderful
  • ✨cArrie✨
    Why didn’t I think of this earlier?! Love it! Can’t wait for what’s coming up next! Love the show so very much and so attached to these characters- all of them! 🥰

    Downton Abbey
    It’s always my fall back show- I watch it all the way through and repeat and repeat…it’s never dull or boring.

  • AbbeyGirl31
    Thank you for this podcast!!
    Truly love Downton Abbey!! Thank you for extending our love through your interviews with the beloved cast members.

    Not Actually a Rewatch
    The first episodes have been enjoyable interviews with creator and cast, but it’s introduced as a re-watch, and it’s certainly not that (yet). Jacqueline Coley is a good host and interviewer, and it feels more pitched toward a US audience, which is fine for me as an American, but others might want to keep that in mind. When the recaps start, I’ll probably come back to review it again.
  • tonesh
    My favorite show of all time!
    So Happy to hear this podcast…a relief from Politics!
  • DavidJamesAllen
    Pleasantly Cheerful
    As a big fan of Downton, I was so excited to accidentally stumble upon this podcast. I love the interviews and insights from the actors. My one complaint, and this is the only reason this review is a 4 star, is that the episodes are too short. I feel as though the eps could easily be 45 minutes to an hour and no one, who is a true fan, would complain.
  • sjn135
    Love the show love the podcast
    So glad I stumbled upon this podcast, and it started just as I was looking for something Downton. I look forward to this every week and goes great with Lady Carnarvon‘s podcast. Thanks so much for doing this. Sandy Newton

    A fan’s podcast
    Love how much the creator/host of the podcast are fans. Spot on about Molesly. I am always so touched when he’s working on the road and struggling and let’s his guard slip with Anna and then immediately asks apologizes for being “self important”. That’s when Kevin Doyle made Molesley one of my favorites.
  • Boyljb
    I’ve loved and rewatched Downton Abbey many times! I’m so excited about the podcasts and have already listened to the first ones! Can’t wait to hear Allen Leach!
  • No tan adictiva
    Same as the show. Brilliant and entertaining
    I discovered the show by accident and from the first episode I got hooked. Shortly after I got my parents hooked too (70 years.) Then my parents got my sister hooked too. We all watched to movie (lovely family memory) Now there’s this podcast and a second movie coming up?? This just made my year!
  • RLF 😊
    So Happy!
    This podcast is so interesting and makes me super excited for the movie. 💕
  • MrsFinProf
    Super Fan!
    Absolutely love this podcast-hooked after first episode! Hearing the Downton theme song on my car speakers on the way to work made my day!!!!!!
  • AC690driver
    Needs better audio
    Audio quality desperately needs improvement. Content is excellent.
  • LawCommenter
    I can never get enough of hearing Julian Fellowes talk about Downton Abbey. What an amazing first episode filled with transparency and emotion. Brought us all right into the story. Ready for more.

  • Sharon fan girl
    Love this
    So enjoyed the interview with Julian Fellows. I thought I heard it all before but it was all new and so in-depth. Cannot wait for the movie. I wish they would come back as a series again.

    Behind the scenes
    So excited about this podcast. I’m a super fan of all things Downton & this did NOT disappoint! Can’t wait to listen to the conversation with Michele Dockery next time. 👏👏👏👏Bravo
  • Cathmom3
    My new obsession
    Oh my goodness, I’m honestly hooked already. And I’m so jealous that I’m not the host! Haha! Such great interviews and in depth conversations. I can’t wait to hear more!
  • Irisvillagegirl
    Top of my list!
    I really enjoyed this! I’m already looking forward to the next episode! I can’t get enough of Downton!

    Revisiting “Downton Abbey”
    Delighted and thrilled about revisiting “Downton Abbey” again in this dedicated podcast! I’ve been a long-time fan of “Masterpiece Theatre” now “Masterpiece” on PBS since I discovered it in the late 1990s. “Downton Abbey” follows in that tradition of outstanding shows/series over the years.
  • Matt Bake
    So interesting! Can’t wait for the next episode!
  • Possibility Person
    More Depth coming???
    I hope this series explores the economic limitations placed on women especially in light of the fact that 2 women are hosting this podcast. The entire series hinged on the fact that Lady Mary couldn’t inherit her own home- which was being largely bankrolled by her mother! We need to discuss this!!
  • Mclary9808
    Love the show
    I loved the show and the movie! And now we have a podcast to revisit the cast of a true work of art. Life is getting better! Thank you for the beautiful memories and I can’t wait for the new era.
  • JF in the 805
    Like a Family Reunion
    I have not yet finished the first episode but I am confident I am going to listen to every single one. I am thrilled that we are able to revisit this world.
