I'm in need of an "escape", and desperately missing outlander (and Poldark) .
To those who've seen both, would you recommend the Crown, or Downtown Abbey?
Thanks!!!

Loved DA, have watched thru the whole series 2x. Started off liking The Crown but got kind of bored and never made it through. I think I stopped somewhere in the middle of season 2.

I have only seen the first 2 series of the crown. I love claire foy but I would absolutely choose DA. I dont know Outlander, but there is the upper class/lower class dynamic in Poldark that is even more important in DA.

They’re both great, but different. I loved both but the crown was truly astounding

In terms of things other than the plot, such as costume, the romance ... (yes, I need that too 😉) Which one would you say does it better?

I definitely think that DA is much more a costume drama, with a lot of drama. It's hard to be surprised that Elizabeth married Philip whereas in DA... who knows who will marry whom?

Am I the only one who stopped watching Downtown after 3 episodes? Idk I guess I was not expecting such a soap opera type show, so maybe that's why I was bored?

I loved Downton Abbey! Really great. Its much more of a costume drama. I also liked the Crown, but not as much. The Crown mostly takes place in the 50s and on. Also, you know what happens in the end since they are well known people who are still alive.

The king and Queen apparently come to visit at Downton abbey

Op, I never watched the crown but I don't see how Downton abbey can be topped! It's a great show

Heyyyy OP I loved Outlander and Poldark too!
I haven't seen The Crown but I loved Downton Abbey
But the very best show of the bunch is Call the Midwife
I can't recommend it enough, it's going 8 seasons strong and just keeps getting better and better! Please try it you will love it!!!!

Call the midwife is amazing. It is hard to compare to DA because DA is escapism and CTM is just raw and powerful and did l mention amazing?
