Writer Julian Fellowes and director Simon Curtis are back with the beloved Downton Abbey characters once again. This time we’re all going on a grand journey to the South of France to uncover the mystery of the Dowager Countess’ newly inherited villa. But who left it to her… and why? Could there be a mystery man in her past?

It all starts in late 1920s Yorkshire when film director Jack Barber (Hugh Dancy), is shooting a talkie called ‘The Gambler’ at Downton, starring Guy Dexter (Dominic West). If you think Lord Crawley (Hugh Bonneville) isn’t impressed, then wait until you hear what Maggie Smith’s formidable Violet Crawley thinks: ‘I should have thought that the best thing about films is that you can’t hear them…'(clearly, she would have loved our regular Palace Sunday Silents).

All the main cast are back. So from upstairs, we welcome back the likes of Hugh Bonneville (Robert Crawley), Elizabeth McGovern (Cora Crawley), Maggie Smith (Violet Crawley), Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary), Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith), and Penelope Wilton (Isobel Merton). While downstairs back on duty will be Jim Carter (Mr. Carson), Phyllis Logan (Mrs. Hughes), Robert James-Collier (Thomas Barrow), Lesley Nicol (Mrs. Patmore), Sophie McShera (Daisy), and Joanne Froggatt (Anna Bates).

What a treat!
