    True -- it's both the blessing and the curse of doing only 8 or 9 episodes a year. They have to pick and choose which events to show carefully.

    I kept waiting for Rosamund to reveal that she, too, had given birth to a child. I'm thinking that the jury is still out on that one.

    I think they used to call it "henna rinse" back in those days. LOL. I could easily be adding up 1 + 1 and getting 3 . . . but speculating is half the fun!

    A tad OT...

    I saw Non Stop today. I noticed Michelle Dockery's English accent, in the movie, isn't as strong as we hear it in Downton Abbey. Interesting! I enjoyed watching her play a different part in a current day time frame.

    I noticed in the previews for NonStop that MD's English accent seems to be completely different. I suppose we have different regional accents here in the US (southern, midwestern, NewYork, etc) so it would make sense MD may have a different (for lack of a better word) "accent" when speaking than Lady Mary does.

    I also think in real life the woman who plays Edith (is it Laura Carmichael? trying from memory) is very beautiful IMO - quite a contrast to Lady Edith who is portrayed as a bit of a plain Jane.

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.

    Am I the only person who thinks there is a lot of Sybil in Miss Bunting?

    Sybil was elegant and had class. Miss Bunting doesn't. Aside from an interest in politics, I don't see any similarities

    I wasn't really talking about the superficialities. The woman seems to have a mind of her own and be determined to do her own thing.
