Michelle Dockery trades the English countryside for the streets in new FunnyorDie sketch
Lady Mary is the new sheriff in town in a new FunnyorDie video starring “Downton Abbey's” Michelle Dockery.
In the spoof, Dockery takes on a new role as a Det. Connie Tough opposite crime drama vet Michael Chiklis in a new TNT cop drama, “Tough Justice.”
But it takes more than a pantsuit to deliver Dockery from Lady Mary's 1920s world.
Lady Mary reappears at the most inopportune times — whether the character is fighting crime, investigating murders and covering her partner in a shootout.

The spoof arrives just days before the American premiere of “Downton Abbey” on PBS this Sunday. And the video must be a welcome departure for Dockery from the grieving Lady Mary of Season 4.
