Is God the missing character in ‘Downton Abbey’?


< Previous Page


This isn’t the sort of spiritual reckoning that some may want to see, but it does reflect the times — and even our times. Anglican leaders are currently lobbying against a bill that would lift the centuries-old ban on members of the royal family marrying Catholics, and the influx of Muslim immigrants is testing Britain’s culturally Christian identity.

On the other hand, for those looking for Fellowes to channel some of the spirit of Evelyn Waugh, a fourth season is in production. If the shockers of season three and its grand finale Sunday night haven’t planted the seeds for a spiritual conversion — or crisis — in this cast, perhaps maybe nothing can.
