Downton Abbey, Seven, 8.30pm
There is something about the show which is positively addictive – and with ratings in excess of 1.5 million, I am not the only one that thinks so! I saw the first episode before it aired on Seven while travelling overseas, recorded the next two, and only just last night got around to watching them back. Now hanging out for the next episode where the fair arrives in the village and Mrs Hughes finds herself at the centre of a speculation, after meeting a former suitor who makes her question her position at Downton. Carson fears there is a thief at Downton.
