TV historian Simon Schama has blasted Julien Fellowes's Golden Globe-winning Downton Abbey in an article for Newsweek.
Schama branded the ITV1 period drama "cultural necrophilia" and was highly critical of Fellowes's portrayal of World War 1 in the show.
Downton Abbey's second series is currently airing on PBS in the US and has picked up higher ratings that critically lauded shows such as Game of Thrones and Mad Men.
