Character Bio

Dr Clarkson photo
Richard Clarkson is the Crawley family doctor. During the second series, he becomes an army surgeon after the outbreak of the Great War, and as a major becomes the military commander at Downton when the estate becomes a convalescent hospital. When Matthew is injured, he thinks his spine may have been broken, but is proven wrong when Matthew walks again (he was just suffering from spinal shock, which didn't permanently disable his legs).

In series 3, when Lady Sybil goes into labor he sees signs that she is suffering from eclampsia and is in danger. However, because of his misdiagnosis of Matthew, Robert hires a well-known doctor who doesn't agree with Clarkson. At first Sybil seems fine after birth, but late in the night is found having fits and dies. Cora blames Robert for Sybil's death because he did not listen to Clarkson. Violet has Clarkson lie to mend their marriage. In journey to the highlands it is revealed that Dr.Clarkson has developed feelings for Isabelle Crawley. However after she explains her feelings on marriage he doesn't act.
