As Lady Mary struggles to come to terms with losing Matthew, she finds a comforting shoulder to cry on in the figure of the otherwise indomitable Dowager Duchess. Season Four promises to be full of romance with a dash of new characters in the younger generation (just look how many snogs there are in this trailer!). Oh, and Jazz comes to Downton. Smashing.
I cannot wait for this season to begin on September 22nd and I’ll be bringing you the highlights of these simply fabulous costumes on this blog, episode by episode. Watch out for some Downton Abbey recipe specials coming up on my blog too… I have just acquired a vintage 1920s recipe book for young ladies educated in the Grantham area, so stay tuned!
