To celebrate the hugely-anticipated release of Downton Abbey, the film version of the widely successful ITV series, we sat down with just some of its expansive cast to chat about all things Downton…

Our man Scott J. Davis sat down with – deep breath – Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Jim Carter & Phyllis Logan, Lesley Nicol, Sophie McShera & Robert James Collier and Michael Fox to discuss fan expectations, finally being able to come together for the film and who they would love to see come to tea if and when a second film comes to fruition. It was certainly one of the biggest and poshest junkets we have been to – and great fun!

This autumn, the worldwide phenomenon DOWNTON ABBEY, becomes a grand motion picture event, as the beloved Crawleys and their intrepid staff prepare for the most important moment of their lives. A royal visit from the King and Queen of England will unleash scandal, romance and intrigue that will leave the future of Downton hanging in the balance. Written by series creator Julian Fellowes and starring the original cast.
