The staff: Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes( Carnival Film & Television Limited for Masterpiece / January 3, 2013 )
Played by: Jim Carter (pictured) and Phyllis Logan
Where we left off: Carson, the butler, had to deal with a small staff because of the war and the Spanish flu. Head housekeeper Hughes spent much of Season 2 helping former servant Ethel, who became impregnated by an officer staying at Downton.
What to expect: Carson not only has to deal with training some new staff members but has a major standoff with Thomas. Meanwhile, Hughes still looks after Ethel and has an incredibly dramatic moment of her own that she tries to keep secret.
