The 1920’s are in full swing at Downton. Lady Mary and Matthew’s wedding has the entire house bustling for the big day. Mr. Bates continues to cool his heels in prison as devoted wife Anna scours the country side for evidence of his innocence. Lady Sybil and Branson return to Downton for the big wedding with the help of a certain mysterious Dowager. All the while, Lord Grantham faces financial ruin.

The story lines are as compelling as ever. Filled with intrigue (courtesy of Thomas and Mrs. O’Brien), romance (courtesy of Edith’s eager pursuit of Sir Anthony Strallan and of course the happy couple, Mary and Matthew) and splendor (courtesy of the big wedding.)

There are new characters in the form of Alfred Nugent, the new footman and nephew to the meddling Mrs. O’Brien. And of course, Cora’s mother, Martha Levinson , played to perfection by the much anticipated Shirley MacLaine.
