Welcome

Welcome to the official website of Jessica Fellowes, author and speaker. Here you’ll find details of my books and talks, links to articles, reviews and television interviews. If you’d like to book me for an event of your own, you can find the details on how to do so here.

For the latest news on events, click here.

In particular, you can find out more about my latest book, ‘A Year in the Life of Downton Abbey’, published in the UK and US. It’s my third official companion book to the hit show, which was created and written by my uncle, Julian Fellowes. The book features behind-the-scenes details, sumptuous on-set photography, historical recipes, seasonal celebrations and traditions, as well as a review of the characters and plotlines, many of which were inspired by our family. Hope you enjoy it!

  1. Question: As underbutler, what does Thomas do? I sometimes see him acting as valet or footman but not much as else. it is difficult to imagine that Carson would let him near the wine cellar.

    • Good question. Technically, he is a stand in for Carson in his absence but as Carson doesn’t seem to take any time off it IS rather hard to think what Thomas does!I think they had to promote him as he had been a valet and couldn’t go back down to being a footman, hence his job as underbutler. But there were very few left in 1924. I hope he does find enough to do – devil makes work for idle hands and all that… as if Thomas wasn’t mischievous enough!
