The Drama Continues At Downton Abbey: Watch The Trailer For Series 3

17 August 2012 by

The Dowager Countess is whinging about money although it looks like there's none left anyway and Lady Mary and Matthew are fighting again. This can only mean one thing, people - Downton Abbey is back!

The hugely popular show (even Marc Jacobs is a fan!) returns to our screens in September and before you get your 1920s knickers in a twist, a sneaky little look at the series 3 trailer might just quench your thirst - or if you're like us, get you even more excited for its return!

From the brief glimpse at the Granthams post-war, we see trouble brewing. Dame Maggie might lose her perch as queen bitch bee as Cora's mother arrives and is sure to ruffle just a few feathers. Oh, did we mention it's actual screen legend Shirley MacLaine? If only her friends could see her now, eh?! Let the battle of the mums commence!

There's more heartbreak for the lovely Anna as she furiously fights to free her man (Mr Bates) from prison. He's not optimisitic but we think he should never underestimate the power of a woman in love. *Sigh*

Oh, and did we mention it's all a bit roaring twenties now that The Great War is over? That means the costume department will have kicked things up a gear. Bring on the flapper dresses and head gear!

We're not gonna lie, we're pretty darn excited. So polish the silver, practise your Queen's English and put on your pearls. And if we get any more sneak previews, we'll be sure to share them with you.
