‘Downton Abbey’ season 5 spoilers: What time does Christmas Special air on ITV?

Downton Abbey -In just three weeks from tonight, the “Downton Abbey” season 5 Christmas Special will officially be here, and we are here in order to answer another big question: At what time will this big special air?

Well, we can give you an answer right now: 9:00 p.m. London time on ITV. The timing of this is interesting, but also very smart for the network. If we were a Christmas Special superfan, what we would do here is watch the “Doctor Who” Christmas Special at 6:15, wait until 7:50 for the “Call the Midwife” special on BBC, and then switch over to ITV to check out the Downton Special at 9:00. That’s a lot of new programming for Christmas!

This special is one that should be entertaining for many to watch, and hopefully will also put viewers in a little bit of a festive mood at the same time. While there may not be a whole lot of information released at the moment regarding this big special, we can tell you that early indications are that this will be a far more positive story than what we had back in season 3, which may go down as one of the most depressing episodes that we’ve ever seen air on December 25. Last year, the only major criticism that we had to offer was just that the special was boring.

We are going to have some further updates when it comes to this event soon, so be on the lookout for more of that, including some potential season 6 scoop!
