Downton Abbey Trailer

Whether it’s Hogwarts or some other rather posh manor house, Maggie Smith always seems to end up playing the same (excellent) character doesn’t she? This new ITV drama, written and created Julian Fellowes, who scooped an Oscar for his Gosford Park screenplay, kicks off at 9pm this Sunday and by all accounts the seven part set in a 1912 Edwardian stately home is excellent. Obviously we’re not sure about the this choral version of Every Breath You Take by The Police as the soundtrack to this little taster, but you can’t have everything.
