Above is a photo from the set for an episode directed by Minkie Spiro, who has previously directed several episodes of fellow PBS drama “Call the Midwife.” According to her Twitter feed, she’s been busy all month directing for “Downton Abbey.”

Below is the first teaser trailer, in which Carson (Jim Carter) intones, “I feel a shaking of the ground I stand on. The nature of life is not permanence, but flux. Things are changing.”

Exciting. We wonder just how the Crawley family and their staff will be changing in Season 5? “Downton Abbey” returns for its fifth season in September in the U.K. and January 2015 in the U.S.
