You are cordially invited to the cinematic event of the year. Enjoy a spot of tea or coffee and some cake, followed by a screening of the long-awaited movie.
The movie revolves around a royal visit from King George V and Queen Mary. Set in 1927, (a year on from the TV series’ finale) with the Great Depression looming and the Crawley’s tightening their belts with their once large bevy of servants now diminished.
The movie will see Carson the butler, played by Jim Carter, come out of retirement to try to restore glory to Downton, and Lady Mary will consider leaving the estate forever. However, luckily Anna Bates is on hand to attempt to convince her ladyship to stay. Meanwhile, Branson gets a new love interest, Mrs Patmore defends the honour of her kitchen from a royal invasion, and the Dowager Countess attempts to bend the knee.
