Downton Abbey - Season Four

At Sea Ranch, Sharon and I finished watching season four of Downton Abbey. We finished season one in August, season two in early September and season three in late September.

The fourth season comprises nine episodes. It originally aired from September 22, 2013 to November 10, 2013 with a December 25, 2013 special Christmas episode.

The show explores the lives of the fictional Crawley family, the hereditary Earls of Grantham, and their domestic servants. The storyline in season four runs from February to August of 1922. Historical events include the Hitler's Brownshirts, the Teapot Dome Scandal and the Prince of Wales relationship with Freda Dudley Ward.

I continue to enjoy and recommend the series. I was shocked to realize that the Freda Dudley Ward was not the woman for which Edward VIII abdicated the throne. He had a fourteen relationship with the married Ward before he fell in love with Wallis Simpson.
