I don't want to spoil this episode for anyone who hasn't seen it, but I just wanted to say how fantastic this Christmas Special was. This series has been entertaining from start to finish and this special seasonal one was certainly no exception.
Dame Maggie Smith was he usual brilliant self, in fact, the whole cast gave it their all and shone like beacons. Kudos especially to Michelle Dockery and Joanne Froggatt for such fine performances, and to the excellent Nigel Havers in his guest role as Lord Hepworth.
There was everything from drama to comedy and all things in between and I hope that all 'Downton' fans will give it the appreciation it deserves in the ratings.
A great performance by one and all.
