    Finally was able to watch episode 3 of Downton...

    It was SO obvious something bad was coming. That was brutal. I agree that it will set up some good storylines for the season, but I still hate that it happened, especially to Anna. She and Bates finally had a little bit of happiness. I know that happy couples aren't great for drama, but on this show, I think it's okay. Anna was right that, if she told Bates what happened, he would likely kill the rapist. Still, you know the truth will come out.

    I just have to say how much I love Mrs. Hughes. Love her.

    Edna needs to fall down a mine shaft. She can take Anna's rapist with her.

    Oh yes. I had only watched the first hour of the episode and had not seen her yet. I caught it last night. Joceline will return at some point, I presume.

    I liked it a lot. I think I'll switch to watching this instead of Lark Rise to Candleford. I've seen almost all those episodes. Before long, I will be caught up.

    I am thoroughly enjoying The Paradise and am hooked on Mr. Selfridge. However, I will say I was a bit surprise Masterpiece Classic decided to air two shows about London based department stores....until I actually sat down and watched Paradise. There are many differences in these two productions and both of them are quite good.

    I saw Paradise and Selfridge quite differently. I had an automatic dislike of the latter, and loved Paradise instantly. Maybe it was the lead male in Selfridge, but it was just a turnoff for me.

    I hear what you're saying about Jeremy Pivens (lead, in Selfridge). I, too, felt the same way....initially. He's grown on me....a bit.

    Both shows work for me.

    Downton

    Click to see Spoiler:
    Yes! Mrs. Hughes slapped Edna down and off she went. Hurrah.
    I wonder if that's really the last we will see of Gillingham.
    I know Anna swore Mrs. Hughes to secrecy but I wish she would tell Bates. Because right now it's more about Bates not finding out than about Anna's recovery.

    I love Paradise, I am so glad it was mentioned here. I have a soft spot for Sarah Lancashire( Miss Audrey)

    Question:

    Are there 2 Gillinghams ? I only read the epi descriptions and the spoilers here. There is reference to a Lord Gillingham, a Mr. Gillingham ... and just Gillingham. Who raped Anna?
