Articles for Downton Abbey Season 3

You have no choice but to button up your tails because Downton Abbey is back and the Dowager Countess says so.

The matriarchs are killing it this season so far, so it‘ll be extremely sad to see Martha go.Recap Part 1: The Wedding We‘ve All Been Waiting For >>> Read more »

This week on Downton Abbey, Branson and Sybil go on the run from the law like the Bonnie and Clyde of arsonists. That is, if Bonnie was pregnant and completely unaware of what was going on and Clyde just watched houses burn down and cried a lot. As a crime duo, they‘re a little lackluster. Read more »
The best episode of Downton Abbey season 3 is also its saddest. Unlike other current Emmy-winning gems like Mad Men and Breaking Bad, there‘s a certain comfort food quality to watching Downton Abbey. The worst danger in this lavish world usually involves missing starched shirts.
