Or am I just an old gimmer with a period drama fetish wink

I'm in! Can't wait. Bit disappointed to learn the slightly evil O'Brian isn't going to be in it though.

I've been to Highclere, it's stunning.

<not so stealth boast>

I've just seen Kevin McCloud's bum shock

TSSDNCOP Sun 22-Sep-13 20:02:47

No way Mary and Branston. You are quite simply wrong.

Can't wait to see if Baby Sybie has got as big as the Rolls Royce yet!

Maryz Sun 22-Sep-13 20:03:00

Oops, sorry, wrong thread.

NuggetofPurestGreen Sun 22-Sep-13 20:03:44

Oh and just remember Dennis Rickman from Eastenders is in it. I love him.

ChoudeBruxelles Sun 22-Sep-13 20:04:20

Ooooh didn't realise it was back on tonight. Dh will be sooo pleasedwink

SirChenjin Sun 22-Sep-13 20:10:38

Why is O'Brien not in it? She was one of the best characters sad

Yes way Mary and Branson - you mark my words!

grin at Mary and Kevin's bum - that really would cause a stir down Downton way!

hudyerwheesht Sun 22-Sep-13 20:17:34

I know, sirchen, don't know why she's been written out. sad

CMP69 Sun 22-Sep-13 20:23:38

Well jeal now
Can't look again until I have watched it sad . Might be late for school as have to squeeze it in between work and 3:15 wink

TSSDNCOP Sun 22-Sep-13 20:33:10

Is OBrian really out? I'm surprised by that too.

What part is Dennis Rickman playing?

campion Sun 22-Sep-13 20:56:18

O'Brien was one of the best characters.Downstairs won't be the same.

Dan Stevens was a bit wet IMO but he did put a bit of a dampener on xmas jollities here at campion towers.

pretty sure I read somewhere that o brien asked to be written out. I think it was getting a bit boring. Dennis from eastenders makwa me even happier. and dh has gone for a bath!

hudyerwheesht Sun 22-Sep-13 20:59:08

According to the feature in the TV guide I've got, TSS, yes.

Even after I read it I had to check the picture to make sure! blush

I've never watched it before but want to. Do you think I will get it even though I've not seen the previous series'?

Right here now from th'X factor thread.

TSSDNCOP Sun 22-Sep-13 21:00:54

I have wine and a Frys peppermint cream. DH banished.

TSSDNCOP Sun 22-Sep-13 21:03:01

BOF Sun 22-Sep-13 21:04:37

I hope they flashback to Matthew dying, it was hilarious.

BOF Sun 22-Sep-13 21:05:16

LOVE Mary's hair.

PolkadotsAndMoonbeams Sun 22-Sep-13 21:05:16

What's happened to the theme music?

DameEdnasBridesmaid Sun 22-Sep-13 21:05:20

Horlicks Bof?

BOF Sun 22-Sep-13 21:06:15

O'Brien saw the writing on the wall, I reckon.

BOF Sun 22-Sep-13 21:07:59

Only because DP bought Red Mountain coffee and it tastes like dishwater, Edna.
