Countdown to the second season of Downton Abbey on ITV is only 2 weeks away! (Sept. 18)
Thanks to Evangeline of Edwardian Promenade who found these images at Spoiler TV and a detailed description of the first episode. Spoiler beware!
SHORT SYNOPSIS of Episode 1 (the non-spoilerish one)
The Great War unsettles life at Downton and Isobel's surprising news about Matthew rocks the family further. New maid, Ethel ruffles O'Brien's feathers and Bates returns with life changing news for Anna.
(which is an ITV production although many assume it's put out by the BBC)
