Of course, everyone associated with the program knows that so they are doing their best to capture some of the Downton spirit in merchandise. You can now buy Downtown Abbey wine from France, or if tea is more your thing, PBS now sells Downton Abbey tea. Silly though it may seem, I must admit I am tempted to try all of them.
And of course there is the latest book ~ the third about the show ~ that is now available. I have the first two and will probably have to pick up this latest one. I just realized that I never got around to buying the third season on DVD, so I must rectify that soon. After all, I can’t have a Downton marathon before the new series airs without the last one. This whole Downton addiction is getting to be expensive.
