What would Downton Abbey be like if Lord Robert Crawley wasn’t around? A lot more fun, if this hilarious parody episode is anything to go by.

The cast of the British period series has created the ultimate send-up of the notoriously drama-ridden Crawley family to raise money for charity.

The clever episode features appearances from Jeremy Piven, Joanna Lumley and, of course, the dashing George Clooney as George Oceans Gravity, Marquis of Hollywood.

With the help of Lumley as a Christmas Carol-style guardian angel, the audience is given a hilarious insight into what the ladies of Downton Abbey would be like if Lord Crawley wasn’t such a scrooge.

Lady Crawley (akak Maggie Smith) as a ski-jump champion? Why not.
