Its not an actual Christmas special, it was just shown on Christmas Day. I know there was some confusion on another site I visit because they weren't celebrating Christmas, but its known as the Christmas show.

I had bought the season on Amazon and didn't plan to watch all of season 3, but I started watching on Saturday and ended up watching all of them!

No, Matthew was saying Tom could leave the baby at Downton. Tom turned it down saying he couldn't leave her.

Thank God Mr. Bates is getting out of jail. I didn't like that story line. Poor Mr. Carson, the world and values are change too quickly for him.

It's labeled "Episode 9: A Journey to the Highlands" on the site I watched it on.
Thanks, that is what I needed to know.

I like Mrs Hughes a lot too. She and Mr Carson are so sweet in their own little ways. If you see the actress that plays Mrs Hughes in real life, she looks so very different. (In a very good way )

Poor Tom Branson. It does feel like something is missing now that Sybil isn't there anymore. Tom must be so lonely. He hates aristocracy and now... Is having to go against what he believes in. At least little Sybil was christened catholic, and he did not give in.

Watch the details. Those shows haven't aired in the US yet. I hope that we get the episodes earlier next year.

She didn't give any spoilers.

I didn't think the Christening had happened yet. I thought it had just been discussed.

You're right. That hasn't happened in the episodes we've had in the US yet.

And on a shallow note- I have never thought Branson was super attractive, but DANG, he looked hot at the beginning of the episode, all sad and in his mourning suit after the funeral.

Wow, she does look different. Actually just about all the women do!

The actress that played Sybil is going to be in some high profile movies.

Sorry. I read others discussing it and thought it had been broadcast.

Laura Carmichael, who plays Edith is so beautiful.
All of the women in full make up really are.
But I love how they keep true to the times and wear very little.
The hairstyles back then were so awful and flat.
