Religious undertones in "Downton Abbey"

The British television series Downton Abbey “captures the complexity of human life in all its richness,” according to the Rev. Ian Markham, dean and president of Virginia Theological Seminary, in an 8-minute video commentary on the show. Prepared for Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, a source for cutting-edge reporting and analysis of religion news, during the show's third season in 2013, Markham’s analysis of Downton Abbey's religious undertones is interspersed with cuts from the show that can be used as sermon illustrations or for group discussion.
