It's Time Again for 'Downton Abbey' - The Silly Video Version, That Is

Friday, September 30, 2011

Susan reporting:

While the second season of Downton Abbey, the immensely popular PBS dramatic series, won't be shown in the US until January, it has already made its debut in the UK, and viewers there are happily engrossed. Spoilers, too, are already all over the internet – but we promise you won't find a single one in this video sketch, created as a fundraiser for the BBC's Red Nose Day. What you will find in it, however, are some very familiar faces in very different roles. Look for Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley (still Absolutely Fabulous), Harry Enfield, Victoria Wood, and is that really Kim Cattrall as the countess? Even screenwriter-novelist Julian Fellowes makes an appearance. And if this isn't enough, there's a second part, too, here.

Love this video! Still kind of lamenting the fact that the second season of Downton won't show here until June 2012. Wahhh!

Hadn't seen that clip before - very funny! Second series is great (two episodes so far) - lucky to live in Scotland! Shame you have to wait till much later.

I love this spoof. And I love Simon Callow as Julian Fellowes ... even funnier, after reading the NYT piece on Fellowes from a copule of weeks ago.
