Downton Abbey Christmas special: plot details revealed

Downton Abbey fans are eagerly awaiting this year’s festive special, following the conclusion of the third series earlier this year – and it’s set to be a real Christmas cracker, if you’ll pardon the pun.

Screened on Christmas Day, viewers will watch as the Crawley clan travel up to Scotland to Duneagle Castle to visit Rose and her parents in the Highlands.

But far from a warm Scottish welcome, things will soon turn sour between the two families…

The cast were snapped filming the scenes at the striking striking Inverary castle in Argyll, in August this year, exciting locals – especially when the actors popped into the nearby Loch Fyne Hotel in between shoots. Read more on this.

Back to the festive special, and Carson is determined that the servants at Downton keep their noses to the grindstone.

But with the country fair coming up, it looks like some of the staff will be tempted to push their luck? A few of them could very well be in trouble very soon.

And it appears that dedicated cook Mrs Patmore might have a spot of romance in her life. How exciting!

Downton Abbey will be on STV this Christmas Day at 8.45pm – don’t miss it.
