Masterpiece: Downton Abbey III: (Episode 4)

Masterpiece Classic

Edith is thrilled when she is asked to write a regular newspaper column, but her family is not supportive. Matthew becomes convinced that Robert has been mismanaging the estate and discusses this with the family solicitor, George Murray, who supports Matthew's suppositions. However, Mary is angered when she discovers that he has been discussing this matter without her father present. Lord Grantham hires a famous obstetrician, Sir Philip Tapsel, as Sybil goes into labor. This upsets family physician Dr. Clarkson and Cora. The two doctors disagree over Sybil's care as Dr. Clarkson insists that Sybil is suffering from eclampsia and should be taken to hospital. However, Sir Philip argues that Sybil is fit and healthy. Despite the disagreement Sybil delivers a girl and all seems well - until later that night when things go horribly wrong.

Premiered in UK as Season 3: Episode 5
