Some of you might argue that the most important moment in this here trailer for the third season of Downton Abbey is the snark-down between Shirley Maclaine and Maggie Smith, but you would be wrong. The most important moment is naturally this:
Could it be? Romance or at least lustfulness for Gay Thomas? I liked the second season just fine but the distinct lack of making out with Charlie Cox brought it down a couple of nothces from the first season's lofty perch. That fellow's not Charlie obviously, but we'll make do. Oh and the second best part of the trailer is seeing Branson in his sleeping shirt, natch.
Downton's third season - excuse me, series - starts airing in the UK on September 16th, and then I start stealing it a few hours later, and then it airs here in the US in January.
