Downton Abbey to release Christmas music album

14 October 2014 2:11 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Downton Abbey is to release its first ever Christmas album.

Christmas at Downton Abbey features 45 tracks on two discs, and is released next month, reports The Guardian.

The album will feature hymns, carols and Christmas songs, as well as a festive version of Downton Abbey's theme tune.

Actors in the series will also perform on the album, including Elizabeth McGovern (Countess of Grantham), Julian Ovenden (Charles Blake) and Jim Carter (Carson).

McGovern said: "It was so exciting for me to have been given the opportunity to sing two songs in a totally different context to that which I'm accustomed - without my guitar, without my band."

Other songs on Christmas at Downton Abbey are performed by musicians including Dame Kiri Te Kanawa and the Choir of Kings College, while Carter reads the popular Christmas story 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.

Christmas at Downton Abbey will be released on November »

The 45-track album will feature a festive version of the shows theme tune as well as traditional hymns and carols

Downton Abbeys Christmas specials have already become a December television tradition, but now the hit series is making a bid for the music charts. ITV producers have announced a 45-track double-lp called Christmas at Downton Abbey, featuring hymns, carols and seasonal tracks by actors Elizabeth McGovern, Julian Ovenden and Jim Carter.

Ovenden, who released a pop album in 2012, said it was a massive honour to contribute to Downtons first Christmas record. Charles Blake sings five songs on the album, including Silent Night and O Holy Night, plus a duet with McGovern, who plays Cora, Countess of Grantham.

Ding-dong, dowager: 'Downton Abbey' is releasing a Christmas album

13 October 2014 5:21 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For those who love a lot more Christmas with their "Downton Abbey," you're in luck: a new Christmas album is due from the popular ITV/PBS show. ITV reports that a 45-song set is due Nov. 10 in the U.K., and will include "a festive version of the show's theme tune" plus traditional songs, hymns and carols. A spoken word version of "T'was the Night before Christmas" will be performed by Jim Carter, the man behind butler Charles Carson. A different Charles (Julian Ovenden) and Cora, Countess of Grantham (played by Elizabeth McGovern) are slated as "featured" artists on the collection. At 45 songs, we imagine there will be a little something for and from everybody, however. No word yet if there is an official U.S. release date, which would likely arrive on the Tuesday after (Nov. 11). "Downton Abbey" features a Christmas episode every year, so you can probably count this years' as extra-musical. »

Will Brit hit 'Downton Abbey' continue to do well with American awards?

5 October 2014 4:14 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The fifth season of “Downton Abbey” premiered two Sundays ago on ITV in the United Kingdom and will begin broadcasting stateside on Jan. 4 on PBS. Already, the period drama has drawn impressive numbers in its native England and could well reap more record audiences for the pubcaster here in the new year.  -Break- The Emmys have regularly recognized “Downton Abbey” in the program categories (won miniseries in 2011, nominated for drama series in 2012, 2013, 2014) and for both directing (won 2011, nominated 2012, 2013, 2014) and writing (won 2011, nominated 2012, 2013).  You decide: Will SAG TV Awards preview Emmys again? And eight of the cast have contended: leads Hugh Bonneville (nominated 2012, 2013), Michelle Dockery (nominated 2012, 2013, 2014) and Elizabeth McGovern (nominated 2011); supporting actors Jim Carter (nominated 2012, 2013, 2014) and Brendan Coyle (nominated 2012); supporting actresses Joanne Froggatt (nominat »

Downton Abbey stars on Carson, Mrs Hughes romance: 'It's always lurking'

16 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Downton Abbey stars Jim Carter and Phyllis Logan have warned fans not to expect a blossoming romance at the beginning of the fifth series.

The ITV drama's Christmas special saw Carson (Carter) and Mrs Hughes (Logan) enjoying a paddle in the sea together while holding hands, showing the first signs of romance between the pair after four series of near-misses.

When asked if viewers could expect more romantic scenes, Carter told Digital Spy and others: "[Writer] Julian Fellowes is a big tease.

"You're all hoping that having a paddle together is going to lead to more things. It proceeds at a stately pace, we can say no more. It doesn't gallop ahead, but it's always lurking in the background."

Speaking about what he'd like to see more of in the next series, Carter said: "I'd like to see more of the day-to-day life. What do they do with a day off? »

Downton Abbey Season 5 Trailer: Change Is Coming to the Fanciest Soap on Television

31 August 2014 12:51 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Ready your formal wear and prepare your manners accordingly: the Downton Abbey Season 5 trailer is here.  Fresh off the unveiling of some new images from the upcoming season of the ensemble drama, ITV has released the first footage from the batch of new episodes.  As you’ll see in the trailer, the theme of Season 5 appears to be change in its many forms.  Times are changing, relationships are changing, and by golly Carson is not having any of it.  I enjoy Downton Abbey quite a bit.  Sure it’s essentially a big, sweeping soap opera in a serious drama’s clothing, but it’s fun and engaging and wholly engrossing; the world building of the show is tremendous.  As such, I’m looking forward to seeing what twists and turns are in store for Season 5. Watch the first Downton Abbey Season 5 trailer after the jump.  The series returns to ITV »

There's a fire burning at Downton Abbey and we're not just talking about the heated passions. "I feel a shaking of the ground I stand on," says butler Carson (Jim Carter) at the start of the newly released trailer for season 5 of the hit PBS period drama. As Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael) sums up, "the world is changing," and the Crawley family and their staff are not immune. There's lots happening in the one-minute trailer: Who's Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) staring soulfully at? Who's Branson (Allen Leech) kissing? Who's in bed with Jimmy the footman (Ed Speleers)?

Breaking Bad Tops True Detective at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

26 August 2014 2:47 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Breaking Bad’s amazing final season always meant that it was a likely winner come awards season. However, the debut of the critically acclaimed True Detective earlier this year did leave many wondering whether it might rob the end to Walter White’s story of one final sweep of prizes at last night’s Emmy Awards.

As it turns out, Breaking Bad would end up being rewarded for those amazing final episodes, though True Detective did earn a very well deserved award for director Cary Joji Fukunaga (who helmed all eight instalments).

The UK was represented by Sherlock, and that too did exceptionally well, walking away with Emmys for Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and writer Steven Moffat. Looking at the results, it’s hard to imagine anyone being too upset with the results, though many Game of Thrones fans won’t be happy to see that it was again snubbed. »
