Love, love , love “Downton Abbey!” Cannot wait for the next installment…looking forward to the redoubtable Dowager Countess and the lamentable Lady Mary…they are the shining stars of the show. Also enjoy the great supporting players that make this such riveting viewing…Carson, Anna, Mrs. Hughes, etc. Not too jazzed about the prospective suitors for the Widow Crawley though….Matthew is a hard act to follow. (Perhaps “Mr. Pamuk” had a twin brother that they could send her way????)

i can not wait until this show comes back on!

LOL the Britt accent is so garbled and unpleasant, to me..
I tried to watch it but to me its a soap for elderly people..

it does well, so many do like it and they enjoy it, just not for me 🙂

Have to say I really hope that they do not “remarry Mary” until Series 5…I am simply not bowled over by any of her perspective suitors, although of all of them I like Julian Ovenden the best…he was superb on “Foyle’s War.” I would much prefer they obtain another ” fair-haired honey” for the Widow Crawley in the future…someone more in the mold of Matthew…perhaps Douglas Booth or Rupert Penry-Jones!

That should be “prospective…” Spell check changed it…..

Cannot wait…………

Love this soap! The characters have depth. I feel like I am actually in the room with them. Really looking forward to the new season.

So very true! It’s as if one were actually present in that long-departed world of elegance…completely absorbing and all-encompassing! The beauty of each and every episode is absolutely breathtaking, and no matter how many times you watch them, they feature something new and intriguing to capture your imagination….a visual, verbal and musical treat for the senses!!!! I totally adore “Downtown Abbey!”

@Shay. Wonderful comment. In fact…it’s something I would’ve/could’ve written myself! LOL. Kudos for an incredibly spot on, eloquently stated critique!

@rebecca1…..Thank you for your gracious compliment, although as a fellow “Abbey” aficionado, I think you will agree that there are simply not enough superlatives in the English language to adequately describe the magnificence that is the show….it’s that special…and spectacular!!!! So cannot wait for the next series…tea and biscuits to the ready!!!!

There are tons of new chars on downton abbey. Only 1 black char. The rest are white chars. Yet not 1 new char is Indian despite abbey creator saying it would be realistic for this period piece to have Indian chars. Of course there are no chars of Asian ethnicity bec abbey needs abt 9 new white chars.

I can’t see the video. I get a message: “The Uploader has not made this video available in your country.” I’m in New Jersey. Did we secede & I didn’t notice? :O

While, of course, no plot has been teased or given away, Fellowes will write the screenplay, with Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn) set to direct.

“There’s no place like home for the holidays, and we can’t imagine a better gift than getting to reunite with Julian, (producer) Gareth Neame and the entire Downton family in 2021 to bring the Crawleys back home for their fans,” said Focus Features chairman Peter Kujawsk in a statement.
