A Downton Abbey Movie?


If you look around the internet, people are talking about a Downton Abbey movie like it’s a forgone conclusion, and they seem to be excited about it.

While I’m thinking: BAD idea.

I know it’s hard to let go of something, but whenever people reunite for a movie, it always results in a half-hearted job that loses the tone of the original. It always ends with a piece of work that tries so hard to give every character something that it ends up bland and gets bad reviews.

From The Inbetweeners to Absolutely Fabulous, the movies always seem like a “Greatest Hits” reel rather than a movie in their own right.


I only ever watched Downton for the costumes, so I’m not hugely invested in it. However, I really hope people kill this idea before it actually gets made!
