Downton ? What Happened

Downton Abbey! 
Is it me but what happened tonight?
Bates and Anna cleans some shoes

Lord Grantham puked up blood over the linen  
And
The sweet natured Baxter did fuck all in court.
Heyho


Meanwhile 

New girl Mary slept next to a neurotic bulldog in front of the fire

  3. I will have to wait for the new season until next year. I like it but then as a young child I loved Upstairs Downstairs and read all of the books. Good to hear that William and George are quite the dear boys in dealing with Mary. Mary is looking quite relaxed. I'm sure Winnie will recover in time .

  5. The Season of Downton isn't on yet in the US/NY .. I will have to be careful reading here so I don't come across Spoilers ..

  6. Uh oh....John, if you post about Downton could you post "Spoiler Alert"? I live in the US (Illinois) and am a huge Downton fan, but as you know, we don't get the pleasure of the show until January 2016 :(.........I love your blog and read it everyday.......if I see "Spoiler Alert"....I'll just skip that day and catch up with you and The Prof on the next day :)........So thrilled Mary has arrived! What a great delight for you......Winnie will warm up to her soon, I'm sure, cause Winnie has a big heart!

  9. I only ever watched it once, and nothing happened then either. Nice set, nice costumes, good cast, no story! I'd rather watch goldfish swimming.

  10. Haven't seen it and have no intention of doing so; I'll stick with WD... Btw, Fear the Walking Dead is very different from WD, but I like it as well as WD.
    No fear of getting the two series confused, but it is eye-opening to see how things develop in the time between onset and when Rick wakes in hospital.

    Wee Mary and Winnie will probably have competitive moments, but be great friends withall. =)

  11. If Winnie is already allowing sweet little Mary to lie that close to her, it won't be long before they will be cuddling up.
    Have never watched Downtown, and no particular desire to, but it's a must with almost everyone we know. Never watched Walking Dead either, for the same reason. Now I've made this terrible confession will you block my comments and banish me to outer Mongolia? On the other hand, I love Scotch eggs.....

  12. I've never watched Downton but I can see that there is almost as much action going on in your living room.

    Nice to see them close-ish on the first day :-)

  13. We enjoy Downton. As I'm sure John would agree, not everything has to have zombies in it or be wildly exciting. :) (Cough, Bakeoff) We get it very late here in Oz too. I wonder if they do that to bump overseas DVD sales?

  14. Lord Grantham spurting blood all over the place was pretty shocking but soon it was all back to normal again. Little Mary looks like she has settled down nicely. x

  15. Do puppies still pine for their mums the first few nights in their new home if there are other dogs to snuggle with?

  16. Watch out for the new film with Maggie Smith 'The Lady in the Van' based on Alan Bennett's story - saw a preview yesterday and it looks great - Maggie Smith at her best.x Sweet doggie pic.I never watch Downton.

  17. Mary looks very happy already. I was expecting Lord Grantham to have a heart attack so what happened was quite a shock ! They went to town with the fake blood didn't they?

  18. In my humble opinion, Downton Abbey died after Dan Stevens and Jessica Brown Findlay left the show. The writers have been grasping at straws ever since.

    And when the hell is hunky Thomas ever going to get some action??
    No wonder he's bitchy. He's obviously sexually frustrated.

    By the way - - here in the U.S. of A. we don't get to see the new season of Downton until January.

  21. Lady Mary was well spattered at the table, but upon her return from the hospital, she was clean as a whistle!!!

    Mary, Mary, quite contrary
    How will your story grow?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Actually, I was thinking of puppy dog Mary, but it might well apply to Lady M. as well!!!

  23. DA fan here, but we won't see the new series for a while yet.
    Lovely seeing Mary being tolerated by Winnie. Looking forward to hearing how the first night went.

  24. 'Mary? Where had she appeared from', I thought. So I had to read your last post to catch up, and is she not the most gorgeous little dog and I shall look forward to reading about her in future posts. Vx

  25. I think your posts for the coming week should just be strings of pics of Mary and the rest of the gang and we would all be vey happy. Wouldn't we?

  26. I didn't even realize Downton was on again. Time to check out the iPlayer!

  27. New, car, new pup - lots going on over there! Mary is adorable. I was obsessed with Downton the first 2 seasons - IMO it was all downhill after that :( Still watching, but glad this the last season! Sad and amazing that the writers couldn't even seem to make the last season interesting (so far anyway)...

  28. A friend of mine went to dinner at some hotel near where much of this is filmed recently, and the guests found themselves being served by half the cast of Downton. You would have loved it.

  29. I saw the 2006 version of Anna. She was in Life on Mars. I think she's had her teeth done since then...

  30. I love Downton and don't mind the spoilers. I'm the type of person who sometimes reads the end of a book while only halfway through.

  31. We are incredibly behind here in Canada with Downton! I can't wait till this season comes out! What a lovely wee one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Good to see the new pup settling in. I wonder if Winnie finds it hardest because she's been the lone female in the group since Meg left and doesn't want to relinquish that status?

    As others have mentioned, we get Downton Abbey late here; it'll be interesting to see how they wrap things up in this series.
