See 40 "Costumes of Downton Abbey" in a glorious exhibit open through that very same day, Jan. 4, at Winterthur, the du Pont family mansion in Delaware.

Lady Sybil's harem pants; Lady Mary's engagement dress; Lady Edith's wedding dress; tea dresses of the three sisters; tuxedos; as well as servants' uniforms and livery from "Downton Abbey" are shown at the 175-room manse, now Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library.

Meanwhile, back at "Downton Abbey", will Lady Mary re-marry? If so, which of her suitors? Will Lady Edith find, and maybe marry Gregson? Will she get back their baby she gave for adoption? Did Mr. Bates avenge Anna's rape? If so, did all the evidence go up in flames?

Fortunately, no need to wait for a "Downtown Abbey" fix. Get thee to Delaware while awaiting Downtown's Series 5.

Or get thee to the actual "Downton Abbey" -- Highclere Castle. A grand way to do that is offered by the series' sponsors, Viking River Cruises. Its excursion to Oxford & Highclere Castle is an optional pre- or post-trip experience on Viking's Cities of Light or Paris & the Heart of Normandy itineraries.
