Downton Abbey: Lady Mary meets a love interest in a clip from episode three

Lady Mary is reacquainted with her childhood friend Lord Gillingham in this Sunday's episode of Downton Abbey

Now we’re not saying it’s time for Lady Mary to move on from her Matthew… but the eldest Crawley sister’s new love intersest isn’t exactly hard on the eyes, is he? 


This Sunday’s episode of Downton Abbey sees the introduction of a few new characters, Lord Gillingham included. 

An old friend of the family, aristocrat Gillingham arrives at Downton (along with his valet Green, played by ex-EastEnder Nigel Harman) for a big party and becomes reacquainted with his childhood friend Lady Mary. 

Will seeing her again spark more-than-friendly feelings? Might Mary begin to believe in a life after Matthew…?

Downton Abbey continues on Sunday at 9:00pm on ITV
