Downton Abbey is a worldwide phenomenon and fans will be pleased to know the new series (season) begins in just a few short weeks in the UK. And don’t worry American fans, you won’t have to wait until next year to see it. There is a way for you to watch it LIVE in a brand new guide I’ll be publishing closer to the date.

The new trailer wets the appetite of the drama in the house to come. Basically lots of secrets and scandalous suggestions that will hopefully engage as many people as possible. Possibly a bit of snogging too.

We know from the trailer that Richard E Grant and Anna Chancellor join the cast and the Dowager Countess has some nice new zinger replies –

“Surely servants are people too?”

“Yes, but preferably only on their days off.”

Ahhh don’t we love the posh people looking down on the staff? To be fair, this was of the day. People got a bit annoyed when the toffs were too friendly with the staff in previous episodes.

Once you’ve seen the trailer, hop over to the Blimey! tour of Highclere Castle, the real home behind Downton Abbey.

Blimey! is your daily dose of British news and features for anglophiles everywhere. This article was carefully written by Tim Holt, a British actor and author based in North Carolina. He misses England very much indeed, but also loves America too. Forever torn between two magnificent slices of sod.
