For those of us addicted to the gripping British period soap-opera, Downton Abbey, the seasons are always too short, and the wait between is always much too long. But now we at least know how long the wait will be. The third season will broadcast in the United States starting next January. (Ugh!) This trailer comes from the UK, where it begins next month. (Hmm, perhaps a subscription to Hidemyass is in order):

Shirley MacLaine makes her Downtown Abbey debut as the Countess of Grantham Cora Crawley’s American mother—a role to rival Maggie Smith’s beloved Dowager Countess (“She’ll bring enough drama of her own”)—arriving when the Earl of Grantham learns the estate is broke. This, of course, doesn’t make for wedded bliss between the newly engaged Mary Crawley and Matthew, and the look on his face when Mary wonders, “if we could disagree over something as fundamental as this then shouldn’t we be brave and back away now?” says it all. Other points of note: Branson’s back, Bates is still in prison, and there are no signs of the two younger Crawley siblings or the servant staff. [click image to watch]
