Behind the Scenes of Downton Abbey: Filming the Point to Point

Okay, I'll confess. I haven't watched Downton Abbey since the second-to-last episode of season 3, allowing me to preserve the illusion that a certain favorite character is alive and well and happily where he belongs. At one time I was as rabid a fan as it gets. Season 1 got me through my master's thesis: for every 10 pages written, I got to watch an episode.

So when I heard that season 5 featured Lady Mary Crawley riding in a point to point race...! Well. I scoured the internet for footage, and found this lovely little video. Enjoy!
