In Sunday night’s Downton Abbey, Lady Mary moves ever closer to putting the rubber stamp on her relationship with Lord “Tony” Gillingham with some distressingly modern talk about contraception. But on this week’s iPad and iPhone edition of Radio Times we look back at the beginnings of Mary’s first proper romance, with Matthew Crawley…
The second part of our free Downton Abbey supplement, The Downton Years, sees Michelle Dockery and Dan Stevens speculating on where their characters’ relationship might lead, while series creator Julian Fellowes shares his love for Lady Mary and his passion for a woman’s right to inherit. We also hear from the other Crawley sisters Sybil and Edith, aka Jessica Brown Findlay and Laura Carmichael.
But the 16-page Downton supplement is not the only content exclusive to this week’s Apple Newsstand edition of Radio Times. There’s a special cover featuring the Strictly Come Dancing star voted for by readers, exclusive Strictly photo galleries and backstage video, an archive retrospective of Alan Bennett and pictorial previews of new series Peaky Blinders and The Detectorists.
