One last ‘Downton Abbey’ Friday

For all of us who love “Downton Abbey”: the wait is finally almost over. The series, complete with footmen and ottomans and — since it’s now the ’20s — marcelled hair and flapper frocks — returns Sunday night to PBS. In its honor, a roundup of fun “Downton Abbey” reading . . .
— Hugh Bonneville (Lord Grantham) discusses the upcoming season and puts to rest the rumor that he’s an avid knitter.
— Shirley MacLaine talks to the New York Times about joining the “Downton Abbey” cast (and uses the word “cougar-able” in reference to Bates).
— An NYU law professor (and “Downton Abbey” fan) discusses Bates’ sentence and whether it could be legally overturned.
— Here’s a long (and delightful) Vanity Fair profile of Julian Fellowes, in which he talks about Season Three.
— Michelle Dockery, looking very contemporary/glamorous and sounding a tad less posh than her TV counterpart, shares some “Essential Mary Moments” in this PBS video.
And finally, what if they watched the Super Bowl at Downton Abbey?
