Everyone Get Excited: Here Are Two New Teasers for Downton Abbey Series 3

Finally! UK network ITV has released two new teaser clips for the highly-anticipated third series of Downton Abbey! Both are excellent and both – naturally – feature Dame Maggie Smith’s Dowager Countess of Grantham being her trademark acerbic/utterly fabulous self.

While both snippets clock in at about twenty seconds long, for those of us who are feverishly counting the days until the Crawleys return to our television screens, they’re basically like water in the desert. And, yes, it’s a chance to get your first look at Smith’s Lady Violet facing off with newcomer Shirley MacLaine’s Martha Levinson. So, click through and watch for yourself!
