‘Downton Abbey’ writer reveals his favourite TV shows

Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes has revealed the TV shows he enjoys watching.

Fellowes wrote all 52 episodes of ITV’s hit British period drama series.

He told The Straits Times: “Recently, I very much enjoyed The Crown, which I thought was marvellous, and I also still dream of Mad Men and The West Wing.”

Dramatising the reign of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, Netflix’s The Crown began in 2016.

American period drama series Mad Men ran from 2007 to 2015, set in a prestigious New York ad agency in the sixties, while White House drama The West Wing aired from 1999 to 2006.

He added: “I’m trying to watch The Good Fight, the spin-off of The Good Wife, which I absolutely loved.

“But The Good Fight has a policy where you have to have a streaming membership or something and as I have difficulty even with a pencil sharpener, it has been an unbeatable hurdle.”

The US legal drama series stars Christine Baranski (Mamma Mia!) and Rose Leslie (Downton Abbey).

Downton Abbey: The Complete Collection DVD box set is available on Amazon.
