This hilarious send-up of Downton Abbey places the Crawleys and their staff directly in history's glare!

While the Granville family dutifully entertain their guests at Devonton Abbey, an ace team of Secret Service agents camp out as unsuspecting household staff, protecting the Royal Crown and her citizens from impending world war.



Who is aware of the international intrigue concealed below stairs? Will Agent Gates save Britain from her enemies while ensuring Devonton Abbey's reputation is upheld? Will Lady Margaret secure a proposal from Martin Crawhill, the heir to the estate? Will Thompson and O'Malley ever get lung cancer?

The graphics have likenesses very close to the televised characters. The humor of the story comes mainly from the upstairs characters' behavior and motives as they are exaggerated to absurdity!

Fun reading and handling of the popular English soap opera, Downton Abbey, where the characters' dialogue are perfectly assigned to recognizable characters and, humorously, explains secreted underlying plots and attitudes. Lovers of graphic-novels should check it out.

This book was most amusing . A great takeoff on Downton Abby. The story line was quite far out but make the characters even more unbelievable than could possibly be imagined
