With all the Oscar hype currently in the air, it’s easy to forget some of the successful motion pictures not included in this year’s Oscar mania. In particular Downton Abbey: The Movie.

The film, set in 1927, depicts a visit by the King and Queen to the Crawley family’s English country house in the Yorkshire countryside. It was both a critical and financial success. John Van Driel had a chance to talk to the composer of Downton Abbey‘s iconic theme.
