Susi's Station Notes: Downton Abbey Arrives!

We had a terrific time meeting so many Downton Abbey fans last night at Studio C! theatre when we previewed the first hour of the new season. It was great fun to meet old friends and new and have such a grand turnout that we had to add a third show!

I want to toss an extra kudo or two to the folks at Studio C. They had to do some rearranging of their schedule to fit in the third screening. We were grateful and so, too, were those who were unable to get a seat when the first two screenings were sold out.

Downton Abbey will begin its run as part of Masterpiece Classic on Sunday, January 6, at 9 p.m., right after a special that visits Highclere Castle, which serves as Downton in the series. We'll have encore broadcasts as well on WKAR and WKAR World.

Let us know what you think about the new season. We love to hear from you!
