The hotly anticipated fifth series of Downton Abbey continues with the focus still firmly set on affairs of the heart.
Meanwhile, the season sees happier news for widower Branson and his sister-in-law Lady Mary who finally find love again.
In the previous series, Lady Edith became separated from the father of her child Michael Gregson, with whom she was happy until he failed to return from Germany.
Edith entrusted Drewe, who is a local tenant on the grounds, with the care of her baby, but whenever the aristocrat is allowed to visit her child, she finds it hard to be separated again, putting a strain on the arrangement.
The Crawley family still aren’t aware of Edith’s secret heartbreak, which in turn leaves widow Lady Mary with no sympathy for her miserable sister.
