Season 5

It is early 1924, and a newly-elected working-class Prime Minister and a Labour government effect changes that are rumbling throughout the land – upsetting both those who live above and below the stairs.

The villagers plan for a war memorial and ask Carson to run the committee. He accepts, on the condition that Robert is made the patron - but winds up falling out with both Mrs Hughes and Robert over it.

Meanwhile, Daisy plans to better herself with a mathematics book, much to the displeasure of Carson, Jimmy is dismissed after he gets caught red handed with a Lady, and Edith learns what happened to Michael. However, her relationship to Marigold remains a secret – but for how long?

Branson's burgeoning friendship causes Robert concern while Mary is ready to find love again. Cracks appear in Edith and Drewe's special arrangement as she increasingly struggles to keep her emotions in check; this may have disastrous consequences for the whole household.

Downton Abbey is a Carnival/Masterpiece co-production and executive produced by Carnival's Managing Director, Gareth Neame, Julian Fellowes and Rebecca Eaton.
