Downton Abbey is a 2019 historical period drama film written by Julian Fellowes, creator and writer of the television series of the same name, and directed by Michael Engler. If you enjoyed the TV series, you’ll be pleased to know that all your favourite characters have returned, along with a few high-profile new faces, including Imelda Staunton and David Haig.
The film begins in 1927, about a year and a half after the TV series ended. Buckingham Palace informs Robert (Hugh Bonneville) and Cora Crawley (Elizabeth McGovern), the Earl and Countess of Grantham, that King George V (Simon Jones ) and Queen Mary (Geraldine James) will visit Downton Abbey as part of a royal tour through the country. Violet Crawley (Maggie Smith), Dowager Countess of Grantham, is perturbed that Maud, Lady Bagshaw (Imelda Staunton), Queen Mary’s lady-in-waiting, is included in the tour. Robert is Maud’s cousin and her closest relative. The two families have fallen out over who should inherit Maud’s estate. Members of the royal household arrive and the Downton servants are affronted by the royal household’s arrogance. Upstairs, Lady Mary Talbot (Michelle Dockery), the Crawley’s eldest daughter who oversees the estate, believes that butler Thomas Barrow (Robert James-Collier) is unable to manage a royal visit. She asks Mr. Carson (Jim Carter), Downton’s retired butler, to temporarily resume his former duties. Barrow, upset, strongly protests but steps aside. A man calling himself Major Chetwode (Stephen Campbell Moore) arrives in Downton Village. He seeks out the Granthams’ son-in-law, Tom Branson (Allen Leech), who assumes Chetwode is a detective assessing security for the royal visit….
