DOWN­TON ABBEY

Drama 8.40pm, Seven

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Sun­day High­lights - – DS

This se­ries had hit writ­ten all over it from its first out­ing, and tonight’s 90-minute sea­son fi­nale shows why. It’s filled with de­li­cious twists, turns, dis­ap­point­ments and skul­dug­gery. Watch­ing stitched-up but­ler Car­son (Jim Carter) com­ing to grips with that new-fan­gled piece of tech­nol­ogy, the tele­phone, is hi­lar­i­ous. The sea­son closer will give you an­swers you never ex­pected, no short­age of shock an­nounce­ments and some de­li­cious cliff-hang­ers. It’s as slip­pery as the bar of soap, which ... ah, that would be giv­ing away too much. The se­ries has won or fin­ished sec­ond in the rat­ings ev­ery night it has aired, and never slipped be­low 1.5 mil­lion view­ers. The good news is there is a sea­son two. The bad news is you’ll have to wait – it’s still in pro­duc­tion in the UK. Word is Bri­tish crit­ics will get a look at it at the end of July.
