'Downton Abbey' Season 3: Watch Shirley MacLaine's first clip


Shirley MacLaine was recently honored by the American Film Institute and part of her ceremony included "Downton Abbey" star Elizabeth McGovern introducing a clip of MacLaine guest-starring as McGovern's mother on Season 3 of the show.

In the clip, MacLaine's character Martha Levinson arrives at Downton and finds it "too much the same," much to the consternation of Lady Violet, the Dowager Countess ( Maggie Smith). Martha also remarks how the war made old women of them both, which Lady Violet is sure to love.

"Downton Abbey" returns for Season 3 in the fall in the United Kingdom, but us poor folks Stateside will have to wait for January 2013. It seems so far away!
