Masterpiece: Downton Abbey III: (Episode 3)

Masterpiece Classic

Branson is wanted by the police for his involvement in the burning of an aristocrat's home in Ireland. The Crawleys are outraged when he shows up at Downton without Sybil. After she eventually arrives safely, Lord Grantham convinces the Home Secretary to allow Branson to remain in England. Meanwhile, a mysterious conspiracy keeps Anna and Bates apart as they are no longer allowed to receive letters from each other and Anna is not permitted to visit Bates. Elsewhere, Ethel decides to let her son live with his grandparents in order to have a better life; and Carson recruits a new footman, Jimmy Kent, who attracts the attention of the female staff...and Thomas. There is a movement afoot for more widespread women's suffrage, and Edith writes a letter to the newspaper in support.

Premiered in UK as Season 3: Episode 4
