Michelle Dockery, Downton Abbey’s American Return, and Tough Justice

Michelle Dockery
ITV‘s immensely popular, British period drama, Downton Abbey, returned to American TV screens this week for its fourth series.

Abbey‘s very own Lady Mary Crawley, Michelle Dockery (PeekYou profile here), is not only trending at the moment as a result, she’s gone viral as well.

Roughly corresponding with Downton‘s much anticipated American return is this Dockery starring Funny or Die clip — called Tough Justice, which you can see by clicking through here — that (at the risk of explaining a rather clear joke) contrasts Abbey‘s restraint and manners with the fast-paced and profane style of a brash, American cable cop drama (the clip also features The Shield‘s Michael Chiklis).
