A trailer has been released for the fourth series and it shows Mary deep in mourning following the death of her husband Matthew Crawley.
You can go to PBS for other information related to the upcoming season. There you'll find a Countdown Clock, if you happen to be counting off the days until the first installment arrives.
|Highclere Castle, the setting for Downton Abbey|
If you're like me and really like movies and books set during this period (pre-WWI and post-WWI), then I highly recommend to you the book I'm now reading. It's called The House at Riverton by Australian author Kate Morton. It is her debut novel and set in England between the wars.
If you're a huge Downton Abbey fan you'll adore this book! An aristocratic family, a house, a mysterious death and a way of life that vanished forever -- what's not to like. It's told in flashback by a woman who witnessed it all and kept a secret for decades.
Will you be watching Downton Abbey, Season Four in January? If you're lucky enough to be watching it already, what do you think (although don't tell us what happens, please!).
