**Spoiler** Downton Abbey Season 5 Christmas Special

Downton Abbey Season 5 started earlier in the previous months in the United Kingdom while viewers wait anxiously for the start of the season coming early January. This being said, for those that don’t want any revelations as to what occurs in the Christmas special, please avert your attention elsewhere.

Unlike previous Christmas specials, it seems that the viewers had quite the juicy tidbits to watch this season. With all that has been flying around for the past couple of months, we have just witnessed Mary’s new potential boyfriend. Furthermore, the Earl must fight off an ulcer, Tom says his goodbyes, and Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes get engaged. This is the lick your chops stuff that you have been waiting for, but leaves the viewers with many questions including:
 




 

Is the Earl’s ulcer really an ulcer?

Does Mr. Talbot have a hidden agenda? Is he trying to become more than an acquaintance?

How will Tom Branson fare and will he ever return?

Will Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes have a falling out or will they be together for the long hall?

Many of these questions have been something of much talk since the showing of the Christmas special not long ago. It’s too soon for speculation as most of what has been seen is too recent. No foreshadowing has really allowed anyone to extract information.

But here is the thing, one of the best lines that I have heard this season came from Mrs. Hughes in response to Mr. Carson’s response, “Of course I’ll marry you, you old booby.” Downton Abbey was trending¬† and #youoldbooby immediately following the episode. After already buying her and him a house, he replied, “take your time, but I am not marrying anyone else.”

Upwards of 10 million viewers hearts melted. There is a lot to think about here and with more questions than answers, you know the show is only going to get hotter! What will happen to the Earl?

 

Series Starts Filming in Oxfordshire

Most of the fans of Downton Abbey like I have been impatiently waiting for the next installment and filming of the next series. Well the cast have been spotted outside Oxfordshire making there new season of Downton Abbey. Pictures have been taken of Michelle Dockery (plays Lady Mary) and Lord Gillingham and Charles Blake.

From many of the pictures placed up in line and the facial expressions made. Reading the body language and the acting on set, it seems to me that the suitor is that of Charles Blake. Slowly Mary is starting to open up, but I don’t think we will see a sharp interest until mid-season.

We are in the down stretched for the 5th season of Downton Abbey and I know you all can barely wait until its arrival. I will take it upon myself to scour the internet and the magazines to find the newest pieces of information for those of you to feast away at.


It also seems that Tom Branson, whom is arguably one of the more favorite characters on the show, whom also lost his wife a couple years ago is starting to make a rebound and might have found a little someone by the name of Sarah Bunting. There are pictures of them during the shoot in which he is showing a little flirtatious behavior. Like a gentlemen, some of the pictures shows his beautiful smile while he removes that hat from his head.

I’m expecting a lot to happen in season 5 so get ready!

 

 

 

Spoilers already are hitting for the new season

It has been floating around the interwebs that Tom Branson, played by Allen Leech, has revealed a couple aspects surrounding the atmosphere of Downton Abbey. When the series returns, viewers will return to the 1923-ish era in which the lifestyle, class civilization in England will change. There will be a struggle to keep what systems they have in place afloat. Reflection about what Downton Abbey and its inhabitants represent will be something of great importance to its viewers come season 5.

As we expect, from the death of Branson’s wife, internal emotional and psychological effects will make there toll on Branson.¬† With this a certain bromance will be observed.


That being said, the addition of some new characters are in order. Carnival films and MASTERPIECE announced that a few new characters will be introduced to the cast come season 5 on PBS.

Richard E. Grant will be joining the cast as a guest of the Granthams. He will be introduced as Simon Bricker.

Lastly, we will have some returning cast members Dame Harriet Walter, as Lady Shackleton, and Peter Egan as Lord Flintshire.
