DOWN­TON ABBEY

Drama 8.30pm, Seven

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - SUNDAY HIGHLIGHTS - – DS

The penul­ti­mate episode of our favourite pe­riod drama has all the hall­marks of high drama – tears, tragedy, heart­break, hap­pi­ness and a goodly touch of over­wrought soap.

Span­ish flu casts a pall over Down­ton, and takes no ac­count of priv­i­lege or poverty in its march. Leave it to Lady Vi­o­let ( Mag­gie Smith) to make the grim ob­ser­va­tion over din­ner about “a masked ball in Paris when cholera broke out … half the guests were dead be­fore they left the ball­room”. There’s a wed­ding, a funeral, and de­li­ciously se­cret deal­ings be­hind closed doors.
