Damn Downton!


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.

    What was lame is the fact that the family already had the good news, except seeing the baby.

    Why didn’t Matthew simply telephone the family to come to the hospital?

    Oh well!

    I do have to admit that I’ve always considered Matthew (Dan Stevens) the weakest actor of the upstairs cast. Sybil (Jessica Findlay) was weak too, so I guess that’s why they got rid of her.
