The family receive a warm welcome at Duneagle Castle, visiting Rose and her parents in the Highlands for their annual summer visit (yes, this is the Christmas special...) But there is no disguising the tensions between their hosts. Carson is determined to keep the servants back at Downton working hard, but with a country fair coming up, will some be tempted to push their luck? Personal servant O'Brien finds a kindred spirit below stairs in the form of her opposite number, and could romance be on the cards for Mrs Patmore?! If you happen to miss it on UTV today, TV3 are showing it tomorrow at 9.00pm.
Downton Abbey. UTV: 8.45pm
