Are you feeling helpless watching Bates suffer in prison across the pond? Here’s your chance to sport your “Downton Abbey” solidarity for the valet, the aristrocrats and the other servants of the hit PBS TV series.

“Free Bates” T-shirts are available at the online PBS shop. Other slogans on the cheeky shirts include “What is a weekend?” “My Other House is an Abbey.” “Kissing Cousins.” “Haters Gonna Hate” (featuring villains Thomas and O’Brien). “Team Violet.” The shirts, available in women’s fitted sizes, are $20.99.

There are also tote bags ($18.99), 2013 calendars ($14.99) and jigsaw puzzles ($15.99) as well as DVDs, CDs and books.
