If you’re not a football fan, then just move along.

Otherwise, put on your big boy pants and throw in this good looking hunk of a trick play.

Yup, it’s a bit risky, but the payoff can be a big 6 points and a handsome pair of socks.

Wherever it goes, you’ll always know.

Just bring her along, where you go.”

Rejoice! All the drama, shenanigans, love, luncheons and Maggie Smithisms are back for a final season.

Will Mary and Edith (and Tom, and Isabel, and Thomas) find love? Will Anna finally (please!) be cleared of murder? Will Spratt get the better of Denker?

Who knows what Season 6 will bring, but grab a cuppa, a remote, your needles and settle in for some fun!
