DOWNTON ABBEY SPECIAL: Is there anything more thrilling than a new frock? The magnificent outfits that are the show's other big stars

Keeping Mum is a 2005 British black comedy film starring Rowan Atkinson, Kristin Scott Thomas, Maggie Smith and Patrick Swayze. To say it is funny is an understatement. It is hilarious. Maggie Smith (as always) has the best lines, and dead-pans them to great effect. The fact that bodies abound makes for an entertaining film as identities and motives are revealed. A stellar cast with great comedic timing!
