Downton Abbey is a British live-action television series that ran for 6 seasons between 2010-2015. This costume drama follows the life of the Crawley family, a titled aristocratic family with an estate in Yorkshire, and their household staff, from 1912 through the interwar years.

Downton Abbey is a gateway fandom into other British costume dramas and romances and to first-time participation in fandom. Many of these new-to-fandom fans host tea and viewing parties, recreate character costumes, and post episode reviews on their blogs but would not necessarily identify these activities or they themselves as belonging to fandom.
