Official “Downton” Season 3 Plot Description

Here is an excerpt from the official release of the season 3 “Downton Abbey” plot description. Visitor warning: Read at your own risk! Spoilers!

Years earlier, Cora rescued Downton Abbey with her New World riches by marrying Robert, Earl of Grantham (Bonneville).

Now, New World and Old World are about to clash as Cora’s mother locks horns with Robert’s redoubtable mother, Lady Violet, played by Maggie Smith.

Last season closed with the reluctant heir to Downton, Matthew Crawley (Stevens), recovered from his war wounds and ready to tie the knot with the eldest of Lord and Lady Grantham’s daughters, Lady Mary (Dockery). Meanwhile, Mary’s youngest sister, Sybil (Jessica Brown-Findlay), has eloped to Ireland with the political-minded chauffeur, Branson (Allen Leech), and is expecting a child.

A tantalizing glimpse ahead: Downton’s impeccable butler, Carson (Carter), breaks in a new footman, who happens to be the nephew of the scheming lady’s maid O’Brien (Siobhan Finneran). Following Matthew and Mary’s engagement, Robert sticks to his duty to maintain Downton more firmly than ever—even as other great houses are crippled psychologically and financially in the wake of World War I.

In this changing landscape nothing is assured, and could it be that even the war-weary Crawleys must fight a new battle to safeguard their beloved Downton?

Michelle set to attend TCA Press Tour this weekend

USA Today has some more of Michelle’s reaction to her Emmy nomination! This certainly is going to be a big year for Downton Abbey…fingers crossed they clean out the house!

Michelle Dockery: Lead actress, drama series
Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery got her Emmy news the new-fashioned way: via Livestream, “sort of watching it through (my) fingers,” she said laughing, on a phone call from London. “I’m thrilled. It’s such an incredible feeling. I’m so proud of the show and the amount of nominations that we got this year in so many categories. It’s incredible.”

It’s a big year for the BBC show, which moved from the Emmy miniseries category to drama. As a result, Dockery now shares the lead actress category with Kathy Bates, Glenn Close, Claire Danes, Julianna Margulies and Elisabeth Moss.

“To be nominated as lead actress in the company of such a amazing women is such an honor,” she said. Post-phone call, she planned on hopping in a cab to meet the rest of the cast. “We’re in the middle of shooting Season 3,” she said, and the cast had already planned to gather and screen the first episode of the new season that night.

What do Downton celebrations look like? “I think there’ll be a lot of champagne flowing,” Dockery said. And it wouldn’t end there: Dockery and many of her castmates are scheduled to arrive in Los Angeles this weekend for the TCA press tour. “We’ll have mimosas on the plane,” she predicted.


As for the TCA Press Tour, here is the schedule:
Saturday, July 21 – PBS
Sunday, July 22 – PBS
