The television series Downton Abbey, set in an Edwardian manor house, followed the stories of the lord and ladies living upstairs as well as the cooks, grooms, and staff working downstairs. This series was a global success. Several social issues were tackled within the show, including gender, social and economic class, and homosexuality.
