Downton Abbey finale is a “heartfelt” and “compelling… tearjerker,” reveal the cast

The stars of Downton Abbey try to describe the finale in three words... and some of them almost achieve it


As Christmas Day approaches there’s just one thing we want to know. And it’s not what Santa will be stuffing in our stockings…

Downton Abbey: the Finale airs on Christmas Day at 8:45pm on ITV
