That's the conclusion of Australian comic Barry Humphries. The 81-year-old comic is best known for his Dame Edna character.
Humphries is known for his outrageous antagonistic politically incorrect comments.
Then, again, he may have a point.
True to this form, he said of Downton Abbey: ‘Why do you think Downton Abbey is so popular in the States? Because there are no black people in it.’ The ITV programme is broadcast on channel PBS in America, and the final series – which concluded in the UK last year – began on Sunday night. — Mail Online
This British drama series follows the lives of the Crawley family and its servants in the family's classic Georgian country house. The series begins with the 1912 sinking of the Titanic, which leaves Downton Abbey's future in jeopardy, since the presumptive heirs of Robert, Earl of Grantham -- his cousin James, and James' son, Patrick -- die in the catastrophe, leaving the family without a male offspring to take over Downton when the current lord dies. The point is important since Lord Grantham's children are daughters -- Ladies Mary, Edith and Sybil, but the facets of their lives and of those of the below-stairs staff -- also a highly regimented world -- have fascinating story lines. — ITV
