[the official backstage pass to the set, the actors, and the drama]
If you are primarily interested in the TV production of Downton Abbey–the hair and makeup, making the costumes, quotes from actors and crew– this book is for you. It includes information about set construction, making costumes, where the various shooting locations are, etc. However, if you are very much interested in the house, and were looking for information about the house, pictures of the rooms, and interviews with the real owners of Highclere Castle, this is not the place to find that. There is nothing about the history of the house and no comments from the Earl and Countess about having their home used as a TV location.
