I’ve been waiting for this since last week! With less than a month before the final season of Downton Abbey is scheduled to start airing in the UK (September 20th, now confirmed), ITV was due to give us a trailer.
Over the weekend, they have delivered in spades. Grab your hanky, because you can’t stop time, and Downton is coming to an end.

It’s still a month before Downton Abbey airs on ITV, let alone PBS. But that’s not stopping the Masterpiece train from cranking out mashups that are going to bring tears to your eyes.
SYBIL! It’s still not fair….
Everything this season with Downton Abbey is going to be “the last.” In this case it’s “The last first batch of promotional pictures from the season!” And “The last official Downton Abbey Cast Photo.”
The press launch was yesterday in London. Maggie Smith was on hand, along with Hugh Bonneville and Joanne Froggatt at the Mayfair Hotel. Smith admitted she hasn’t actually watched any of her work on Downton Abbey. She plans to now that it’s finished. Right after a nice rest.
“I’m going to be lying down. I believe for quite a some time. The other thing I will be doing is watching it. I will get the box set and have a good look. I certainly haven’t watched anything that I’ve done. I have seen some of it. But I want to sit down and look at it all.”
She joked: “I’m just surprised that I got to the end because just before this I’d done about 10 years with Harry Potter. So I felt very old indeed by the time I got to the Dowager. I’m honestly just surprised that I got through it and I’m still here.”

Last night in London, the BAFTAs hosted a special presentation to mark the end of filming of one of the UK’s all time hit series, Downton Abbey. Most of the cast turned out for the event–including some faces we haven’t seen in many a season. Let’s check out the best looks from the carpet, as opposed to those who merely bored us.
This was, of course, Michelle Dockery’s night, and she dressed for it. One of the things we’ve seen with Dockery over the Downton years is her coming to terms (much like Christina Hendricks) that her best looks always come from simply doing the modern update of what her character would wear in the same situation.

It’s not much to go on yet, except that the Dowager looks cross and put out, and Thomas is still carrying silver trays down long halls. ITV has released its fall trailer for a bunch of shows that will be coming to the channel come September, including Sean Bean’s The Frankenstein Chronicles and the new Jekyll and Hyde. Heck, even Doc Martin makes an appearance.
Oh and Carson and… should we call her Mrs. Carson? I think I’ll still call her Mrs. Hughes, thanks, are clearly gossiping about something.
