Abbey Xmas.

DOWNTON Abbey fans are in for a posh yuletide treat with a two-hour Christmas Day special of the period drama.

And as an extra present, makers Carnival Films have announced the show will return for a fifth series next year. Managing director Gareth Neame said: "We promise all the usual highs and lows, romance, drama and comedy." In the Christmas special American actress Shirley MacLaine comes back as Martha Levinson and Hollywood star Paul Giamatti joins the cast. How spiffing...
