Downton Abbey 3 - Episode 5



Full recap below: 
(spoiler - dont read further if you have yet to watch the episode)


215"Episode Five"Jeremy WebbJulian Fellowes14 October 201211.93 [nb 15]47 minutes
September 1920. Edith is asked to write a regular newspaper column. She is excited about the opportunity, but most of the family is not supportive. Isobel helps Ethel by offering her a job as a servant; however, Mrs Bird refuses to work with Ethel and consequently leaves. The new maid Ivy draws Alfred's interest and receives Daisy's resentment. Matthew believes that Robert has been mismanaging the estate and finds an ally in George Murray, the family solicitor. Mary is angry when she discovers that Matthew has been discussing this without her father, Lord Grantham, present. Sybil goes into labour and Lord Grantham hires a famous obstetrician, Sir Philip Tapsel, upsetting Dr Clarkson and Cora. The two doctors disagree over Sybil's care, Dr Clarkson insisting that Sybil is suffering from eclampsia and should be taken to hospital but Sir Philip arguing that Sybil is fit and healthy. Despite the disagreement Sybil delivers a girl and all seems well, however during the night she becomes very ill and dies. The next day Cora seems to blame her husband for the death, because of his refusal to accept Dr Clarkson's argument that Sybil was ill.

  1. Thank you so much for posting each episode!! Is there any way you can shrink it down a bit? Your sidebar boxes are covering the little icon that enables us to make it full screen. I would much rather be able to see it on my whole screen than in the little box. Thank you!!

  3. It currently reads -
    Unable to play this video at this time. The number of allowed playbacks has been exceeded. Please try again later.Dismiss

    Is this because so many people are searching out your blog and hitting the link? Can we expect it up and running again soon?

    Thank you so much for these posts! They have made me so very happy.

    Thank You for posting the link on Facebook for S3 ep5. I'm from Seattle, WA and I could not wait till January '13 to watch. How do you get these links so they can be shared? The internet is magic.
    I will be looking for the link to ep6 next week.
    Thank you again.

    Julie

    1. you are very welcome. I was lucky enough to live overseas for a while so I have someone who gives me a copy of each show right after it airs in the UK. I was so excited - January is just not acceptable!

      I hope this means we'll be able to get Season 4 right after it airs in the UK rather than wait for it to be released in the US! Will that be the case?

  5. You are a saint to provide us this 3rd season of Downton Abbey. Yesterday I could not get to the video but tried first thing this morning and it played beautifully. Thank you for this unselfish gift to many strangers.

    1. No problem at all... There is no way I could have kept it to myself! Sorry you couldn't view it at first. So many people were watching the video it freaked out and stopped working for a while! Glad we got it working again. I hear episode six is really good and that there are only a couple of episodes left, and one more cast member is going to die....yikes! stay tuned!

When can we see season 4 through your site, and is there anything you know of in England we can see regarding Downton Abbey when we get there? Thank you so much for this site. I LOVE this show!!!!!
