Storyline

Opinion is divided upstairs and downstairs when Mary and Tom throw open the abbey to the public in aid of hospital funds, though the outcome of the ongoing battle for the hospital's future brings mixed blessings for Cora. The open day itself is a success despite the family's inexperience as tour guides and an entrance from an angry Violet. Romance appears to blossom for Mary and Henry and possibly even Mrs Patmore and Mr Mason, whilst Molesley is given an unexpected opportunity by local schoolmaster Dawes and the erstwhile Mrs Hughes finds her new husband annoyingly critical of her domestic duties.
