The series, set on the fictional Yorkshire country estate of Downton Abbey between 1912 and 1926, depicts the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their domestic servants in the post-Edwardian era—the great events of the time having an effect on their lives and on the British social hierarchy. Events depicted throughout the series include news of the sinking of the Titanic in the first series; the outbreak of the First World War, the Spanish influenza pandemic, and the Marconi scandal in the second series; Irish War of Independence leading to the formation of the Irish Free State in the third series; Teapot Dome scandal in the fourth series; the British general election of 1923 and the Beer Hall Putsch in the fifth series.
The sixth and final series introduces the rise of the working class during the interwar period and hints at the eventual decline of the British aristocracy.
