Fellowes is expected to take a similar approach to that which helped make Gosford Park and Downton Abbey so successful and tell the story from the interweaving perspectives of the upper and lower classes. Plus, seeing as the sinking of the Titanic played an important part in the first series of Downton Abbey, he will hardly be breaking new ground.
An ITV press release says that viewers will be âtaken on a heart-wrenching journey through the Titanicâs last hours, as the drama reveals which of the characters they have come to know so well will survive…and which will not.â? Thrilling stuff.
In fact, given the similarities to his previous work, we wonât be at all surprised if Fellowes decides to call it Downton Abbey on Ice.
