It does feature sports and pastimes away from Christmas, so don't expect a huggy huggy Christmas all the way through.
Furthermore, as pointed out by other reviews i have seen, there always appears to be a death each time a baby is born: there is Ethel's baby and the death of the father and of course Sybil's death earlier in the season. This makes the story-line a little less good compared to before. But the reason for this ending was mainly due to the cast member's choice to leave the show.
Yet despite this ending, this special is very good, with some good momments, set partly in Scotland and at Downton. On the whole it is just as enjoyable as the previous episodes and is probably more so if the viewer expects the tragic end, because i think, personally, that it was made more shocking and upsetting because it was completely unexpected and happened so close to the end, yet i do think this is a great series and i am sure that season 4 will be no different.
I would, however, highly recommend the 2011 Christmas special, which is fantastic, and I will continue to watch the fourth series in the hope that things will improve. But this episode will, unfortunately, be a disappointment for even the most loyal of Downton fans.
