Watch the funniest Violet vs Isobel moments in ‘Downton Abbey’!

One of our favourite pairings in Downton Abbey has always been Lady Violet and Isobel Crawley.

Dame Maggie Smith and Penelope Wilton have played the pair’s rivalry with such warmth and wit since the very first episode back in 2010.

To celebrate the release of last year’s movie based on ITV’s period drama series, the show’s official YouTube channel put together a hilarious ten-minute compilation of the pair’s best moments from the first few seasons.

Watch the video:


With the Downton movie making a fortune in cinemas, plans for a follow-up are currently well underway.

There’s also been some very welcome news for fans who were panicking that we’d seen the last of Maggie Smith as the Dowager!

The Downton Abbey movie is available on DVD on Amazon.
