Last episode (UK) was November 6th, second series.  I hope there will be a third series, they did leave aspects in the air at the end.  Typical when generating feedback to justify funding for a follow on.

If you like the period type drama then the writer has made a film about the Titanic  (Julian Fellows). This is due to be shown next April around the 100th anniversary of her sinking and promises to correctly portrayed.

The third series will begin filming in the spring, our spring that is  :-); there is also a Christmas special over two or three nights which should clear some loose ends.

However, I do hope that they will reduce the adverts, to none preferably, expand the scenes and situations and realise that most of us have an attention span greater than that of a flea.

Downton Abbey is given third series


Period drama Downton Abbey has been commissioned for an eight-part third series, ITV has announced.

The new run will be set in the early 1920s and continue to chart the fortunes of the Crawley family and their servants.

Downton's creator Julian Fellowes said he was "extremely grateful to ITV" for committing to a third series.

The current season, set around World War I, is due to reach its conclusion on Sunday.

There will also be a Christmas episode, which will be shown next month.

Fellowes, who won an Academy Award for his screenplay of the film Gosford Park, added: "I have grown very fond of my Downton family and I certainly do not want to say goodbye to them quite yet."

The drama, which stars Hugh Bonneville and Dame Maggie Smith, has continued to be a ratings hit, with its most recent episode drawing an audience of close to 10 million viewers.

But the show's storylines have recently been criticised by television critics as being being too far-fetched and fast-paced.

Downton's executive producer, Gareth Neame, responded to criticisms, saying that its high-viewing figures suggest that TV audiences are enjoying the show.

The third series is expected to be screened next year.
