Episode Summary

EDIT

Lord Grantham receives some terrible news from the front line which will impact on everyone at Downton.

It looks as though the future of the entire family could be under threat as the greedy Vera Bates threatens to expose all the secrets that she knows about the Crawley family. Can Lady Mary stop her, using her connection with Sir Richard Carlisle before it's too late and what will happen if she doesn't?

For Daisy, life is complicated enough without everything else that is going on as she feels caught up in a whirlwind with regard to her relationship with William.

  • A brilliant episode. When it comes to period drama, nobody does it better than the British and there is no finer example of this that "Downton Abbey".

    9.0
    It is 1918 and Matthew and his troops are involved in a major battle. Both himself and William are seriously injured when a shell explodes near them and must get to a hospital as soon as possible. William is taken to Leeds whilst Matthew is sent to Downton Village.

    Amazing acting by Dame Maggie Smith as Violet struts her stuff and excellent work by the extremely talented Michelle Dockery, well supported by Laura Carmichael, Sophie McShera and others who all do a great job showing us the horrors of war.

    If you haven't seen this yet, I suggest you put it on your list of things todo immediately. You will be very glad that you did.moreless
