Who else thinks he should take the money and save Downton?

Only if he can be in control of it.

Don´t think he should just hand it over to someone who has (like their father) shown themselves to be crap with money.

In fact I think he should just walk away from the whole ridiculous outdated institution.

And I think that old Matthew would have done.

Now he seems more of a snob than the Granthams!

Not being snobby but still tied up with his grief/ guilt over Lavinia.

However I can't see why he can't invest it in the estate for the greater good + all.
(local employment, housing etc of staff)

Should provide some interesting plotlines for next few weeks though !!

"Not being snobby but still tied up with his grief/ guilt over Lavinia."

I meant just a snob in general.

I don´t understand why he never got off his arse & went back to work.

Unless he & Mrs C have private money?

OH i'm pleased there's another thread about Downton (i was getting square eyes lurking at the other one ) grin. Yes of course Mathew should TAKE THE MONEY but it would stop the plot dead wouldn't it? Lady Mary 's getting very snobby now she's going to be the Countess out doing her grandma maggie who she used to make fun of.

And another question - did Bates admit to murdering Vera right at the end of last night's episode??? We thought he did.

Not sure if Bates actually admitted it, or just said what he did to put the fear of god into his cellmate.

I suspect he DID it, though.

Can't blame if he did wifey was the psycho grin TBH it's the one part of DA that really annoys me; the sweet Anna waiting for him; give 'em a break Julian.
Am LOVING Shirley Maclaine giving them all a kick up the bum though.
