With “Downton Abbey” season 3 now officially wrapped up in Britain with the Christmas special, we’re now going to shift our focus over to the launch of the show in America on PBS Sunday night. With that in mind, let’s start things off with a reminder that if there are ever spoilers in an article for our readers in the United States, we’ll place a handy warning at the very beginning for all to see. Luckily, there are no spoilers moving forward, so read here with confidence.
What is always interesting is seeing how a show’s actors and creative team choose to hype up their episodes during their publicity tours, and whether or not you get the sense that somewhere within them, they secretly realize that they are putting out a subpar product than in years past. However, you never get the sense that Elizabeth McGovern (Cora) believes this, and she makes some pretty big declarations about what is coming up in an interview with the Daily Beast:
“What happens to the characters is deeper and has more resonance … For me it is the most satisfying series yet.”
What we personally love about this comment is that rather than make some sort of blanket statement that everyone out there is going to love this season, she relates her appreciation for the show back to hos much she enjoyed the filming process. Luckily, we feel that many of you may feel the same way after watching the story unfold this time around. If you liked season 2, odds are that you are going to love season 3.
