As this is an ongoing project, the list will grow over the coming weeks.

This project started as a research and reference tool for a fanfic of mine (that I still have to finish and post). I was trying to follow one specific plotline and started typing up the relevant scenes for easy reference. But there were so many that I figured I might as well do the whole thing.

DISCLAIMER: These transcripts are a labour of love, without the slightest thought of copyright infringement, disrespect or disregard of the genius of the show's original creator, or of anyone else who made it happen. Nothing here belongs to me and your enjoyment is the only reward I'll ever ask.

If you're looking for the scripts of Season 1, 2 and 3, please buy them from your local bookshop or favourite online bookseller by using the information that you can find on these pages:
Season 1
Season 2
Season 3

If you're looking for the script of the 2019 Downton Abbey movie, you can find it here.

A few words on technicalities:

  • I'm not a professional screenwriter, so if I disregard any conventions of the genre here, don‘t sue me.


  • I’ve called the characters by the name by which I think of them, which won’t always be logical - sometimes it's their first names, sometimes it's their last names, sometimes with a title, sometimes without. Mrs Hughes will always be ‘Mrs Hughes’, never ‘Elsie’ or ‘Mrs Carson’. Anna will be ‘Anna’ but her husband will be ‘Bates’. Lord Grantham will be ‘Robert’ but Lord Merton will be ‘Lord Merton’. And of course Thomas Barrow will always be ‘Thomas’, if only because it annoys him so much. If you think of them differently, feel free to.


  • Likewise, I won’t add any physical descriptions or other qualifiers to any of the familiar characters and locations - firstly to save space, and secondly because I don’t have the vocabulary to talk about these things. Clothes will be mentioned only if they’re relevant to the plot. Sorry, fashion buffs - for an inventory of which lady wears exactly what in which episode, you’ll have to go elsewhere.


  • I’ve tried hard to keep the stage directions objective, neutral and merely descriptive, rather than offering opinions of my own. I may have failed occasionally.


  • I have added a couple of footnotes within the text (a handful in each episode) to explain some cultural references that may not (or no longer) be common knowledge, or that may never have been common knowledge outside the UK. If you feel that I’m over-explaining, bear with me for the sake of less well-read audiences. If there is anything I’ve taken for granted but that you would like explained, please absolutely drop me a line.

If you find any mistakes, inaccuracies, omissions or disagree with anything I’ve written, please know that I totally welcome constructive criticism. Comments (signed or anonymous) are enabled. You can also contact me on Tumblr @jolie-goes-downton. And feel free to spread the word!
