And I'm already screaming "LEAVE OFF BATES, YOU BUTTHOLES!"

He just seems like such a decent man and they're so mean . angry

Oooooh they get much worse grin

It is a splandid watch but the 'period' language, authenticity and historical context is rubbish quite frankly. Bloody good watch though. I can't wait for the nest season.

Bet he wishes he was back in Larkrise to Candleford where he was a respected pillar of the community grin

At least he hefted his great pride from Lark Rise all the way to Downton.

He'll be alright. He's a noble man. Look at the set of his jaw.

I am so jealous. I wish I hadn't watched it so I could have the pleasure now.

It's back in the autumn isn't it?.
