Four years after the hit period drama ended and Downton Abbey have been given the big-screen treatment. Set two years after we last saw Lord Grantham and co, the film is set in 1927 as King George V pays a visit to the stately home. Last night the Downton Abbey movie premiere took place in London and now the first reviews are in, with a current Rotten Tomatoes score of 85%. Most of the critics gave three-star, but hail the movie as another cosy outing with the much-loved characters.

Overall, Downton Abbey is an exquisite return to the wonderfully familiar, while at the same time featuring a sharper wit and even more gorgeous scenery than ever seen in the canon before.

The Reporter
Satisfyingly sumptuous.

Gentle, unchallenging drama for people who already know they like it, this is a nostalgic and rosy depiction of an England that was, surely, never so innocent.

The Guardian 
It is at all times ridiculous - but, I have to admit, quite enjoyable

The Sun
This film puts the lite into polite, the fine into refined and the cent into decent.

Daily Telegraph
Watching it is like settling into a reupholstered armchair which still creaks in the same old places.
