A Moorland Holiday is the one hour-and-a-half holiday fifth season finale . It first aired on the 25th December, 2014 on ITV in the UK. In the US, it first aired on March 1, 2015 on PBS.

Covering several weeks near the end of 1924,  it begins in the grouse season, and later moves on to Christmas.

Summary  Edit

It's the early autumn of 1924 and Rose's father-in-law Lord Sinderby has rented Brancaster Castle in Northumberland and invited the Crawleys to a grouse-shooting party. However, the Sinderbys' butler Stowell has an axe to grind and a scandalous secret threatens to derail the holiday.

Back at Downton, the servents hold the fort and unlikely later-life romances abound, while Mary takes drastic measures to clear Anna's name as she faces an uncertain future behind bars. The seasons change and another Christmas is enjoyed at the Abbey, where a heartbreaking farewell and a joyful reunion take place.1
