'Downton Abbey' Season 3 clips: Sybil and Tom arrive, Martha wants to help with wedding plans

The "Downton Abbey" Season 3 premiere is still months away for us States-side Downtonites, so we have to muddle through by scooping every little bit of Season 3 footage we can. Luckily, the BBC has just released this "Downton" featurette that has a few new snippets of the Crawley family and their cohorts. Martha Levinson (Shirley MacLaine) arrives and like any good busybody grandmother, immediately sticks her nose into the arrangements for Lady Mary's pending nuptials -- "Now Mary, dearest Mary. You tell me all of your wedding plans and I'll see what I can do to improve them."It's also pretty delightful to see Tom and Sybil's arrival -- good on Cora, Mary and Edith for being so welcoming. We imagine both Sybil's father Lord Grantham and pseudo-grandfather Carson will be a bit harder to win over."Downton Abbey" premieres this Sunday, Sept. 16 in the U.K. and Jan. 6, 2013 in the U.S.... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/09/downton-abbey-season-3-clips-sybil-and-tom-arrive-martha-wants-to-help-with-wedding-plans.html

‘Downton Abbey’ Season 3: Get Ready for Lots of Romance…and Tears [Video]

It’s not quite time for us to return  to Downton just yet, but ITV has kindly offered up a full-length trailer to hold us over until the third season of the hit series premieres on PBS in January. The trailer is packed with dramatic teases and enough tears to make any fan worry about what might be on the horizon for the Crawley family and their staff. On the up side, it also features plenty of romantic moments to balance  out the impending sadness. Let’s start with everyone’s favorite star-crossed lovers, Mary and Matthew. At the end of last season  the couple finally got engaged, but it doesn’t look like they’re going to be riding off into the sunset just yet. At one point in the trailer we see what appears to either be a wedding dress or a veil floating downwards as if it has been tossed, and there’s also a scene of Mary walking away from a distressed looking Matthew. However, the trailer does end with Matthew offering Mary one of the most delicious declarations of love this series has ever offered up. "I’ll never be happy with anyone else as long as you walk the Earth," he says. Maybe those two crazy kids will work things out after all.
