Watch Religion and Downton Abbey on PBS. See more from Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly.

In this PBS.org video, Reverend Ian Markham, dean and president of Virginia Theological Seminary, discusses the role of religion in the popular British TV series "Downtown Abbey." Markham says the drama, which is now in its third season, is largely a social commentary with few explicit references to God. However, faith is very present.
