‘Downton Abbey’ trailer for Season 3

The sound quality is lousy, but who cares — it’s Shirley MacLaine, emerging from a carriage wearing an excellent hat, with her daughter Cora smiling a rather complicated smile! Mary and Matthew having Relationship Issues yet again! Lord Grantham facing financial embarrassment! Anna and Bates facing adversity with a stiff upper lip! The Dowager Countess! The return of the Irish Chauffeur Whose Name I Can’t Remember! (Yes, I know he married Sybil, but I still can’t remember his name; he seems to have Matthew’s number, though.) Anyway, fun stuff. Those lucky Brits get to watch this show next month; we have to wait until January . . .
