Mr Carson, The Butler. Carson is keen to get the staffing levels at Downton back up to scratch. He has kept standards as high as he could during the war years, managing without footmen and pushing himself to the limit, and he was mortified to suffer a physical breakdown in front of the family. Carson is nevertheless aware that the servant class has been changed by the war. He has to learn to accept Matthew as co-master, but he remains eternally loyal to his beloved Mary. Played by Jim Carter

Earl of Grantham, Robert is delighted that Matthew will soon be his son-in-law as well as his heir. He remains less enamoured with Branson, and struggles with the fact that Sybil has married the chauffeur.

In this changing landscape nothing is assured and, as Robertʼs custodianship of the estate comes under scrutiny, he is called to account for his past decisions. Played by Hugh Bonneville

Dowager Countess of Grantham, Violet, continues to expect the same unforgiving standards, but is aware that the world is changing and the family must look to protecting its kingdom in the new century.

The arrival of Martha Levinson, with her plain-spoken observations about where the world is headed, sets Violetʼs teeth on edge. Played by Maggie Smith

She is happy for Matthew to marry Mary, she is also keen for her son to make his mark on Downton. Perhaps he will wrestle the estate into the twentieth century? Played by Penelope Wilton

Loyal to Robert in all things, she wants to persuade him to accept Sybilʼs marriage and would love to welcome Branson to Maryʼs wedding.

The arrival of her mother, Martha, is a reminder that, despite her fatherʼs fortune, her outlook less hidebound by history, than those of the Crawleysʼ. Played by Elizabeth McGovern
