I believe the encore presetation of season 2 starts in December. Meanwhile, I'm making due with Upstairs Downstairs and Call the Midwife. While not quite Downton Abby, they are very good period dramas.
I think they said sometime in January for season 3. It's one of the few period dramas that I can tolerate; don't much care for Upstairs, Downstairs, and Call The Midwife conflicts with Heartbeat, another period series, a long running one, set in the 60s and this one comes with appropriate music: Yardbirds, Stones, Donovan, Moody Blues and many lesser knowns; same music on its sister story, The Royal.
I've been finding quite good newer stuff from England: Dazliel and Pascoe, A Touch of Frost,New Tricks, Wallander, and a few others.
