Down­ton Abbey

Thurs­day, Seven, 9.15pm

Isis Town and Country - - Television -

Ev­ery­thing must run out of steam even­tu­ally. And the same may be said for the fifth se­ries of Down­ton Abbey. The once vi­brant pe­riod drama seems to be suf­fer­ing from a lack of a real nar­ra­tive arc to keep this sea­son truly sus­pense­ful. Yet, on the up­side, Dame Maggie Smith has con­tin­ued to en­ter­tain with some killer one-lin­ers, while the im­pos­si­bly beau­ti­ful fash­ion has risen to the chal­lenge to also step things up a notch sea­son by sea­son. In tonight’s sea­son fi­nale, loose ends are tied up as an­other Christ­mas ar­rives, with sur­prises, ro­mance and a sad farewell. Stars the won­der­ful Michelle Dock­ery (above), who we will hope­fully see in sea­son six, which is al­ready on track.
