THis single episode DVD is the sequel to Season 3 and takes place in 1921. For the first time screenwriter Julian Fellowes has decided to take some of his cast of characters away from Downton and let them enjoy a holiday in the Scottish Highlands with two of their cousins. While the cats are away, the Downton mice are at play (lLiterally & figuratively)as Mr Carson allows the staff to attend a local fair. Mrs Patmore and Cousin Isobel almost find themselves on the brink of marriage (one suitable and one not)and Under-Butler Thomas proves to be a valuable friend in times of trouble, after all.
Up in the Highlands, set against some beautifully filmed scenery, we see the Lady Violet's niece & nephew locked in a decidedly chilly marriage while their flighty daughter Rose (Lily James)continues to behave badly. We are also given a brief look into another household's downstairs, and the antics of Matthew's valet Molesly and Lady Cora's maid Brown.
The climax at the end of this episode was highly disappointing to me, as it plunged this wonderful series into the realms of the cheezy soap opera. Has Julian Fellowes finally run out of believable scenarios for his characters?

My wife (and I!) have become Downton Abbey addicts. Thanks to Takealot we now own the entire set from season 1 to 6. A magnificent production with amazing attention to period detail....an absolute joy to watch; and watch again; and again!
