With the house recovering after the shocking events at Christmas, Downton can be assured that change is again headed its way, but how will Downton Abbey react to its ever uncertain future?

With the introduction of new characters, old characters, Maggie Smith’s one liners and a beautiful story line within a beautiful house, this year sets to be one of the strongest seasons Downton has seen so far.

As a piece of TV craft, Downton Abbey really does seem to have turned the clock back: this new series much more closely – and welcomely – resembles that glorious first season, which made itself instantly the most popular TV drama in Britain back in 2010.

These are stories about a family, and stories about its servants. There is love both spoken and concealed; there are new allegiances, new rivalries upstairs and down, old scores to settle, the reappearance of an old flame.

With the introduction of Gary Carr, Downton’s first black character, the implementation of change that Downton has faced in every season, is really coming, and its probably coming faster than they think.

With the introduction of Downton's new generation, but what will the future hold for them?

With no crazy love interest of Branson and Lady Mary being confirmed, its exciting to see what will happen with Downton’s new generation and how our widow’s will cope as parents. We know that Branson has pretty much nearly come to terms with Sybil’s death, but how will Mary cope after finally finding the man that she loves?

Not to mention the new life, with party animal (admittedly quite tame considered to todays generation, but a party animal none the less!) Lady Rose moving to Downton after an agreement with her mother and Lady Cora in the Christmas Special, its obvious that adjusting to Downton life won’t be the only troubles that she faces. What they will be, we will just have to wait and see.

Will Carson be able to keep the downstairs staff in good order?

Even with the departure of Siobhan Finneran as Miss O’Brien, the world has been guaranteed that we will still have drama, love, hate and mischief downstairs that we all know and love, however who will be the culprit of this seasons conniving?

With the preview reviews coming in for the first episode of season 4 thick and fast, this season promises to be on the best yet, with new life and new things coming into Downton, it’s exciting to see what change will do this year and what is in store for some of the countries favourite actors.
