Downton Abbey - Christmas Special

No spoilers, I'll resist the strong  temptation to tell you everything. And to do it, I won't write much, don't worry. I really don't want to spoil the pleasure for you to discover how this second season of Downton Abbey will end. It was a very good episode, full of emotions and great moments. I liked it very much. Brilliant finale! You will laugh, be moved and ... caught in the snowy, magical, festive atmosphere at Downton. A wonderful Christmas gift!  If you loved the first two series you won't be disappointed by this Christmas special. May I say just one little, little thing? No major spoiler promise: I missed the newly married couple. I hoped they were joining the family at least at the end of the episode. 

However, get ready to more scathing lines from Dame Maggie Smith, to be on the edge of your seat for Mr Bates facing trial for murder, to see an incredible Servants' Ball, to smile at Matthew dancing with Miss O'Brien and Mrs Patmore, to admire Lord Grantham more and more, to see someone throw a punch on someone else's face, to enjoy a dreamy finale under the snow.
Matthew and Mary's fate, you ask? I promise no spoilers, do you remember? Mr Bates and Ann? Wait and see.  There's a third series coming, you know? 
They'll start shooting it in February. Until next year then, for series 3!  And , by the way, at the end of the episode, they presented the trailer of the new costume drama written by  Julian Fellowes coming soon (in spring, they said) on ITV: Titanic. Are you going to watch it?
