Downton Abbey--a sprawling, lavish Edwardian mansion nestled in the Yorkshire landscape--needs an heir. Dame Maggie Smith stars as Violet, the stubborn Dowager Countess of Grantham, matriarch of Downton. Hugh Bonneville stars as her son, the stoic unflappable Earl of Grantham; Elizabeth McGovern plays his far-sighed American wife, Cora; and a star-studded cast round out the glittering, gossipy, and beguiling men and women of this epic tale from author Julian Fellowes.
