Downton Abbey - Latest from TV Guide - 7th August 2013

How will the family cope? And what dramas can we expect upstairs and down? Read on!


Lady Mary Crawley (Michelle Dockery) Without Matthew, Mary is at her flintiest, but we can't blame her since she really did lose the best part of herself in a "stupid car crash." But even the always loyal Carson (Jim Carter) has had enough of her attitude and observes that she's letting herself "be defeated." Out of the mouths of servants! Meanwhile there is at least one possible new man in her life, played by Tom Cullen. "He is an old family friend, and she's known him since she was tiny," Dockery said. "She's slowly coming back to real life. It's important for her to eventually move on, so he is a potential love interest." And, surprising to no one, Mary isn't the most maternal of mothers to poor little George. "It's hard to bond with the baby because she's going through the grief," she said. "And when she sees him, she sees Matthew."

Lady Edith Crawley (Laura Carmichael) The oft-fooled and jilted Crawley sister will resume her journalistic pursuits and that tenuous relationship she had with her editor Mr. Gregson (Charles Edwards), who is more ardent than ever and even mentions marriage. "Yes, she is still involved with the paper," Carmichael said. "We haven't seen Gregson for some time due to the fact that the family is in mourning, but she's still turning in some articles. I like to think of her as a bit of a Carrie Bradshaw of the '20s. Edith goes to London a lot. " Neame added that "It really is a different story for Edith this year." It certainly looks like Edith is flourishing in the '20s. She's embraced the drop-waist flapper styles and appears more open and relaxed. She even gets to eat publicly in a restaurant! Also, expect her to have something to say about women getting the right to vote in America.

Lady Rose MacClare (Lily James) "We see the streets of London, and Lily James' character Rose is one of the Bright Young Things," Carmichael said. Through Rose, we'll see more of an escape from the dreary Downton mourning and more of that modern feel as the aristocracy fades.

Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham (Maggie Smith) As usual, she's alive and kicking ass, verbally. In the preview trailer, the Dowager Countess is the one who thinks of a scheme to get Mary back on her feet (see below), despite Lord Grantham's (Hugh Bonneville) reluctance to push his daughter. Also, she'll be just as opinionated as ever, especially when it comes to the liberal politics of Prime Minister David Lloyd George. "Every time he's mentioned, Violet has a seizure," Neame said. "We really want audiences to connect with these people to feel they are as much like us."

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
