Father Christmas

Downton Abbey has once-again partnered with ITV's "Text Santa" fundraiser and created another fun video short (like the one they did last year with George Clooney).

This one is about the search for someone to play Santa Claus for the kids in the Abbey. They are treated to auditions from the likes of a dirty-mouthed Gordon Ramsay, an indignant Jim Broadbent, Brenda Blethyn as DCI Vera Stanhope and Warwick Davis, who’s looking for a big payday. But Carson (Jim Carter) really wants the job.

The banter at the audition table is especially entertaining.

The new season of Downton Abbey begins on January 3rd.
