Last Night Season 6 of Downton Abbey started on our BBC network in SA and there is talk that its the final season. I have been an absolutely follower of the series and am going to hate to say goodbye to all the characters I have come to love on the show. I remember a few years ago I got so involved with the Dallas series Patrick Duffy as Bobby, JR Ewing, Sue-Ellen even Priscilla Presley showed face . . . I would get so upset that some days I was frantic at the way they behaved or slept around. Then there was a six month period of Days of our Lives - when Stefano had that poor girl buried alive and we watched her in the coffin for days - that was horrible. Luckily Downton Abbey has not had that affect on me, the only thing I want to do is visit the Abbey if I ever get to the UK. Do you also get totally involved with a show or series?

@PainsOnSlate You say it is on PBS, I will have to look it up and see if it might be a program I would be interested in watching.

@Inlemay I cant without spoiling too much, well cant say much, other than becket and castle's relationship is tested, and the whole story arc is irritating at best

If the show is good, yes! Some years ago we had a TV show called Rich Man Poor Man and I was following it like a kid following an ice cream truck.

I've also watched Downton Abbey but although I like it very much, I can't say that it gives me sleepless nights. I've read that some actors want to do other stuff now and this is the reason why the series can't go on.

maybe they have run out of maid and servants to get out of jail or something like that - ha ha ha or I believe some of the main characters have passed away - in real life

I hope that something else is on the come - I loved Call the Midwife but that also finished. Love English Dramas

I have watched a couple of episodes, but I was not particularly interested by this series.
