Life suddenly seems so much more promising for Lady Edith after the travails of recent weeks. Following her very public humiliation where she was at the centre of every pitying eye, she dusted herself off and wrote to The Times about women’s suffrage.
Despite the disapproval of just about everyone, notably her overbearingly patrician dad, her outspokenness might just have done the trick. As a result, Edith is made an exciting offer. Though, again, not to universal acclaim. Meanwhile, in the servants’ quarters, comely new maid Ivy is attracting lots of attention, particularly from Alfred the footman. Poor lovestruck Daisy isn’t pleased at all and flares with jealousy.
An exciting offer for Edith divides opinion, Isobel throws Ethel a lifeline and Anna's perseverance finally pays off. Daisy is unhappy when Alfred takes a keen interest in newly arrived maid Ivy, while Matthew's concerns about the estate grow - but are his protests falling on deaf ears? Costume drama, starring Laura Carmichael, Penelope Wilton, Amy Nuttall, Joanne Froggatt and Dan Stevens.
