make it stop!
I watched series one on dvd, it was DIVINE, three nights, no ads, lovely.

Phew was panicking there Harriet!

For those who missed the trailer....also lots of behind the scenes footage on the DA website. grin

PastGrace, I pm'd CheerfulYank with the same link! Not that I'd use it of course ;) .

mrszimmerman, I did too but then the time frame thing is even worse when all nine episodes are watched in such a short time, aren't they? It supposedly spanned two years and four months. In my head it only seemed to span a couple of weeks!

Can't see the trailer over here sad and can't find it on youtube.

I would never use such a thing! <sputters indignantly>

But if I ever did I might, say, refuse to go with DH and DS to visit relatives so that I could, say, start episode 2. HYPOTHETICALLY.

Also hypothetically, if I were to watch season 2 I would think I'd love Bates just as much as I always had and that wife of his did look like a bitch, and he was probably just calling a spade a spade.

Phew, found you!

<settles down with a brew>

mrszimmerman Wed 12-Oct-11 07:20:18

I don't understand the loving of Bates. And WHY does his love interest have to be as young as his grand daughter would be? He's kind and silent and strong but also central casting for the creepiest, wrongest kind of bad un' in a crime drama.
And the actor Lord wotsit has eaten all the pies hasn't he?
But if Matthew and Mary have to end up together to satisfy our womantic needs, how will Matthew forgive her harlotry and criminal behaviour?

"you have some interesting guesses on the go there, laydeez.."

But are any correct??

Well, with Mary & the Turkish guy, Ethel & the farer, Sybil & Bransen, I reckon Matthew is better off awayfrom them all before they corrupt him toogrin

Available men of any type being so scarce in the rarified circles of Downton, the gels are easily swayed by a sweet -talking cad wink

Has this new thread unexpectedly moved on 3 years too? grin

harrietthespook Wed 12-Oct-11 09:30:37

Waiting for AITCH to return and spill it

Bossybritches22 Wed 12-Oct-11 09:32:17

Is Aitch a TV reviewer/editor??

<makes kidnap plans-the ransom will be obvious>

ThePsychicSatsuma Wed 12-Oct-11 09:33:55

ooooooooooooooh 4 days to go till ep 5. can't actually wait already.

ripstheirthroatoutliveupstairs Wed 12-Oct-11 09:41:08

I am looking forward to it too. DH is coming to England on Friday evening, that means he must watch all the episodes I've recorded for him so far before Sunday.

Bossybritches22 Wed 12-Oct-11 09:45:40

Lucky Mr Rips !! Hope he likes period drama?

ripstheirthroatoutliveupstairs Wed 12-Oct-11 09:51:39

To be fair to him, he'll probably be more interested in the Spooks I've also recorded for him.

A vair quick update re Season 3. Zoe Boyle, aka Lavinia, was characterised as a 'guest' star of the show and not listed as one of the main cast members for this series...leaving the door open for...?

ripstheirthroatoutliveupstairs Wed 12-Oct-11 10:55:13

Rolf Harris?

Summerbird73 Wed 12-Oct-11 10:57:22
