Did everyone watch "Downton Abbey" last night? I've been fairly obsessed with this amazing new program fresh out of England. Written by the fantastic Julian Fellowes (screenwriter of Gosford Park) and staring practically every actor and actress in Great Britain. Amazing story. Stunning costumes. And major design porn with the interior filming at Highclere Castle.
If you've not been watching (firstly, shame on you!) here's a link to order the complete first series on DVD - There's bound to be spoilers in the comments - so avoid them if you want to watch it unspoiled.
|WHO will Mary Crawley finally marry?!?!?!?!|
|The daughters - Sybil, Mary, and Edith.|
|'O'Brien' - Lady Cora's mischievous maid.|
|Dan Stevens as the charming Matthew Crawley.|
|Jim Carter and Hugh Bonneville as 'Carson' and 'the Earl of Grantham'|
|The national treasure Maggie Smith|
And seriously, there should be shrines built at regular intervals along each highway and byway across the width and breadth of the Earth to stop in and praise the planetary wonder that goes by the name "Maggie Smith"here's a look behind the scenes . . .
