In this publicity image released by PBS, Rose Leslie, left, and Siobhan Finneran are shown in a scene from "Downton Abbey," a four-part drama about life in an English country estate. An abrupt ending with several unanswered questions _ including whether the show was even going to return _ led to angry phone calls with many "Downton Abbey" fans, said Paula Kerger, PBS president. The first season was only four episodes. The second season, set during World War I, contains seven episodes and starts Jan. 8. (AP Photo/PBS)
