I’m sorry to post twice in one day, but this made me angry!
I don’t miss Downton Abbey, but I wish I had missed it tonight. Series 3 should have ended last week. I knew that they would have to come up with something dramatic to propel the story into the next series. The Edith plot line might have been enough, Rose going to live at Downton was probably enough. Then Mary had her child … everything was going along too well. Then they went cliché.
Matthew speeding through the lanes back to Downton to give everyone the good news. Yes, you can guess what happens. The result was pretty unambiguous.
Why did they have to stoop to that?
A big thumbs down to the finale of series 3.
