Great performance and great Maggie Smith

For those who did not follow the adventures of the successful Saxon television series Downton AbbeyCreated and written by Julian Fellowes, it must be remembered that everything took place in early 20th century England, in a luxurious country mansion, owned by the Earl of Grantham.
