|Matthew and Lady Mary- Will they get together or won't they?|
|Lady Edith, Lady Mary and Lady Sybil, the Crawley sisters of Downton Abbey|
I did wonder about Lady Mary and her mother Cora discussing Mary's situation so openly without closing the door. Doesn't everyone look at the door if one is discussing something that is not common knowledge to see if someone like Lady Edith or a nosy Parker like Thomas or O'Brien might be listening? I mean they even named names!
|Robert Bathurst/Mr. Weston/Sir Anthony Strallen|
Did anyone else recognize Sir Anthony Strallen as Robert Bathurst, better known to me as Mr. Weston from the most recent version of Emma 2009 with Romola Garai? It was bugging me where I had seen him before.
The line of the night had to be,
Mrs. Isobel Crawley: "I will take that as a compliment."
Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham: "Then I must have said it wrong!"
|Gwen (sweet as sugar) and O'Brien (was she beaten as a child?)|
By the way, if you want more Downton in your life, go to Masterpiece Classic on PBS and you can read Q and A's with Hugh Bonneville and Dan Stephens (The Earl and the heir), participate in a live chat with Dan (Matthew) tomorrow-(Monday January 24th at 12:30) and even watch full episodes of the show that have already aired-if you live in the US that is. Canadians are shut out from all video of Downton on the PBS site (as is the rest of the world I presume). I have already complained to PBS but to no avail. Something to do with airing rights. Same reason I can't watch anything on the BBC sites either. Dangit!
My Downton Abbey DVD is already on order so I can replay this in February at my house! Now, I think I may have to order all four seasons of The Tudors to get me through the rest of this deep freeze of a winter!
