    The sketch was televised last night on ITV, as part of Text Santa.

    The sketch feels very different than a normal Downton episode: The pace is much much quicker and all of the characters act a little differently.

    It features Violet (Maggie Smith) rolling onto the floor when George Clooney kisses her hand.

    Thomas (Rob James-Collier) leaning in to kiss George, but instead has a curtain closed in front of him.

    There's even a scene with the writer Julian Fellowes.

    In regards to how nothing in this sketch made any sense, which it didn't.

    The mini-episode is in two parts. The first one is here.
