A dance to remember: New ‘Downton Abbey’ movie slated for March 2022

You have questions. I have some answers.

Q: Please tell me the name of the waltz played in the “Downton Abbey” movie where the king and queen and the family are all dancing at the ball. I am so moved by that scene.

A: The ballroom sequence includes Strauss waltzes, followed by the cutting between the ball and Tom dancing with a woman on the balcony. (I will leave it at that to avoid some spoilers.) The music transitions from Strauss into “Sunset Waltz” by longtime “Downton” composer John Lunn; he told “Town & Country” magazine that the musical transition was “quite difficult because it needs to be seamless … sounding like Strauss and then metamorphosing into John Lunn.”

By the way, there is another “Downton Abbey” movie coming. Originally set for this December, it is now scheduled to premiere in March 2022.

Q: Can you tell me where “Holey Moley” is recorded, the time of year and the temperature of the water? I get a laugh when contestants get dunked.

A: The show is made in Santa Clarita, California, at the Sable Ranch, a much-used production location. According to ABC, the most recent season of “Holey Moley” was shot early this year. I don’t have any information about the water temperature.



Q: Will “Coroner” be returning? Where can I watch reruns?

A: The Canadian drama will begin telecasts of its third season on The CW on Aug. 19, a change from a previously announced July return. (The third season has already aired in Canada.) You can find repeats of the first two seasons’ episodes on and the CW app.


Q: A few years back, there was a series about a New York cop during the Civil War. I believe the name of the series was “Copper.” Do you have any info about it and is it available anywhere?

A: “Copper,” set in 1860s New York, had some impressive people in the production team, among them several from the classic “Homicide: Life on the Street.” But it lasted just two seasons in 2012-13. The series has been released on DVD.
