Play Downton Abbey bingo!


Everyone's favourite pseudo-period drama Downton Abbey returns to ITV this weekend - and with it comes a wealth of burning questions...

Will Lady Mary and Matthew finally come good on their romance and tie the knot? How long will Bates languish in jail? And what possible mischief can evil manservant Thomas Barrow muster up for a third season running?

So many questions, so little time - but there are at least a few things that are pretty much guaranteed from a good old episode of Downton.

The Dowager Countess will fix someone with a withering look and perhaps an icy one-liner for some unforeseen faux pas. Several years and a string of life-changing historical events will fly past in one episode - with a few oblique references. There will be a lingering shot of some poor servant ironing a newspaper/polishing a chandelier/engaged in some other picturesque-yet -petty task.

In celebration of all these delightful nuances - and to revel in all things Downton - we've created a Downton Abbey bingo card, below. Simply print out your copy (scroll down for the attachment) and have at the ready as Downton returns to our screens this Sunday at 9pm on ITV 1...

Minutes of mindless fun guaranteed!
