ITV have released a Downton Abbey trailer for series five that shows the Stately Home on fire – and reveals lives are in danger.

“I feel a shaking of the ground I stand on,” says butler Mr Carson (Jim Carter) – but that’s not the fire he’s talking about.

Watch the terrifically teasing video below.

Downton Abbey returns to ITV on Sunday, September 21, 9.00pm
