Shirley MacLaine stars in Downton Abbey, tonight at 9pm on UTV.

Downton Abbey

The once-gamine Shirley MacLaine comes formidably into the first episode of the new series, clashing whalebone on whalebone with the equally formidable Maggie Smith. The two women are almost exactly of an age, but throughout their careers have played very different roles. Here, however, they're alike festooned in dowager high fashion as the blockbuster rumbles on into 1920, and opens with the wedding of Mary and Matthew.
