ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Michelle Dockery trades the English countryside for the city streets in a new Funny or Die sketch. In the spoof, Dockery plays Detective Connie Tough, opposite crime drama vet Michael Chiklis, for a new police drama, "Tough Justice." But it takes more than a pantsuit to deliver Dockery from her familiar 1920s world: Lady Mary reappears at the most inopportune times - whether the character is fighting crime or investigating murders. The fourth season of "Downton Abbey" premiered in the U.S. on Sunday (January 05), and the video was probably a welcome departure for Dockery from this season's grieving Lady Mary. To watch the complete "Tough Justice" clip with Dockery and Chiklis go to www.funnyordie.com.
