Downton Abbey Christmas special – spoilers & pictures!
The Downton Abbey Christmas special is one of the most highly anticipated show of this year’s festive season and we know many of you can’t wait to see what’s coming up for the members of the Crawley family and their servants.
ITV have revealed some details of the episode, including the fact that much of the installment will revolve around the planning of a lavish Christmas party to be hosted in Downton Abbey.
Set in 1919, tensions will be running high between staff members and Bates’s arrest casts a shadow over the festive period….it will certainly not be a case of ‘goodwill to all men’ in the Yorkshire country estate.
An unforeseen event at a shooting party leaves Mary reconsidering her life with Sir Richard Carlisle and Violet is worried about Rosamund, and is doubtful that her new suitor Lord Hepworth is all that he may seem.
Nigel Havers and Sharon Small will appear in the Christmas special, as Lord Hepworth and Marigold Shore, Lady Rosamund’s maid, respectively.
Downton Abbey Christmas special airs on ITV1, Sunday, 25 December 2011, 9:00PM – 11:00PM
