ALETEIA: Downton Abbey Creator Turns to Trollope with “Dr. Thorne”
Costume and customs return as Julian Fellowes resurrects one of the novelist's most famous Victorian novels
By Carrie Gress, Ph.D.
Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes has returned to delight audiences with another tale of “love, envy, lust and greed, of arrogance and vanity, and false values, but mainly of love.”
With the new series, Dr. Thorne, Fellowes isn’t writing an original script as he did with Downton, but has adapted the writings of 19th-century British novelist Anthony Trollope.
