Two new ‘Downton Abbey’ trailers hint at dark times ahead

Are the Crowley’s broke? I’m assuming that’s the only way you can really take lines like Lord Grantham’s “The money’s gone,” and the Dowager Countess’ talking about how useless a manor house is without servants. That’s just a little of what we get from two new trailers, released from both ITV and PBS, who air the show in the UK and US.

Take a look at the trailers, and let us know in the comments below what your thoughts are so far. And who you think wins this battle of trailers – the UK or US? Our vote goes to the UK, as usual.

Downton Abbey returns to ITV on 16th September, and us poor Americans have to wait for PBS to get their hands on it, which won’t be till 13th January, 2013.
