Downton Abbey Seasson 5 – Winter Christmas Special

The Christmas Special for Downton Abbey on ITV has changed this year as it has moved physical location from Highclere castle to Alnwick castle. Alnwick castle as you know was used for the Harry Potter series. They have embellished the castle using artificial snow.

The period drama is being shot in the middle of August and the video can be seen here, shows Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary) and Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith) taking a stroll down the side of the castle and river. The downton crew have made the entire landscape a snowy pasture all around Nothumberland.

That being said, Laura Carmichael speaks out about her character, Lady Edith. Speaking to “Hit Fix,” she states that no one really knows where Edith will be. She explains that her child is in the country without her and Gregson is no where to be found. The family doesn’t really know. Furthermore, she says that she won’t really be getting sympathy from the family. Lady Edith’s emotions and mental health will be all over the place. Her character is someone to really focus on as she is a psychological mess. She really has placed herself in this situation and I believe this is a slippery slope for her.

It seems that Lady Mary will soon pick between her two very handsome suitors, which has been proposed by venture capital posts. These two suitors to recall are Lord Gillingham (Tom Cullen) and Lord Blake (Julian Ovenden). Although she is still unsure, hints in season 5 might shed light on who is going to win that prized possession.
