parabelle Thu 25-Dec-14 21:15:19

Oh yes. I want to go there for my Christmas.

pinkr Thu 25-Dec-14 21:29:42

What is going on?!! Stuck in car traveling south and desperate to know! !!

Tryingtobecalm Thu 25-Dec-14 21:34:50

Why does marigold never look happy?!

Donthackmenow Thu 25-Dec-14 21:46:18

Is lord Grantham going to die?

JazzAnnNonMouse Thu 25-Dec-14 21:46:20

I'm watching. Is George clooney in this one?
Not a lot is happening really is it! No deaths yet !

I'm watching.

Mary is horrible. Acerbic like her grandmother but without the wit.

NK5BM3 Thu 25-Dec-14 22:02:29

What is an agent???

JazzAnnNonMouse Thu 25-Dec-14 22:05:30

Another clone suitor for Mary

Tryingtobecalm Thu 25-Dec-14 22:08:08

I say yes to lord g dying or at least critically ill.

Never cross barrow! Brilliant!

Mary is a cow.

Is an agent the person who sells the houses on the land the families sell/give up to tenants/build housing? No idea though

MissMarplesBloomers Thu 25-Dec-14 22:46:59

Land Agent, bit like an estate manager I think?

Oh lordy they've started me off with the Sybil stuff....surely Pickle can't go?? Or at least mary Edith & sweep her off to the states with him?

AWholeLottaNosy Thu 25-Dec-14 22:52:52

Why is that woman ( didn't see last episode) in jail?!

MILLYmo0se Thu 25-Dec-14 22:58:37

awwww, I'm welling up at the engagment !
Waiting for Grantham to keel over

MILLYmo0se Thu 25-Dec-14 22:59:49

no deaths ?! Im amazed

MissMarplesBloomers Thu 25-Dec-14 23:01:59

All the loose ends tied up in a satisfactory (if rather soppy) fashion!

Marvellous!! Merry Christmas All!

Anna and Bates make my skin crawl. I wish they'd pop their clogs. I really cannot see why Fellowes writes the whole thing around them. Dull, dull, dull.

More of the dowager, please. She's ace. Carson's proposal had me sobbing.

Tryingtobecalm Thu 25-Dec-14 23:17:11

Loved Carson and Hughes!

Twitter was fun during Downton. I particularly enjoyed 'René: “And now Lady Edith is going to sing.” Colonel Von Strohm: “René! Bring some cheese we can stuff in our ears!” #Downton #AlloAllo' fgrin

MsAdorabelleDearheartVonLipwig Thu 25-Dec-14 23:31:10

Was Clooney in it? Didn't see him.

My autocorrect chsnged Clooney to a looney. fgrin

NK5BM3 Thu 25-Dec-14 23:36:06

I liked the tying up of all the many loose ends... Good show. Glad no deaths though. Had enough of unhappiness.

Having said that, can they do something about Mary's many suitors?? They all look so alike!! Or at least dress them differently. I thought Edith might hit it off with the one she hung out with. She deserves some happiness, although perhaps it was her father's forgiveness that is her dose of happiness this episode!

SirChenjin Thu 25-Dec-14 23:45:50

I KNEW it - Carson and Hughes are getting married!!! I feel happier than I should be, given that its only a TV drama confused blush

Really enjoyed this Christmas episode - no deaths, hurrah!

BOFster Thu 25-Dec-14 23:51:56

Clooney was in the Text Santa Special show last week. He also cropped up in a dress in 'White Christmas' this afternoon, I thought, but that was actually his Aunt Rosemary.

Ah, lovely feel good telly- land where nothing bad happens ( for long anyway), nice to finish a lovely day with some escapism and a new series promised..... smile

What is the point of Anna and Bates? She is a decent actress but he is dreadful- no depth or subtlety at all. The storylne is rubbish and completely unbelievable. How many times is this man going to be charged with, serve times for, confess to or be questioned about crimes he did not commit. Just pointless twaddle that sits outside of evey other aspect of the series now.

Loved Thomas's bitchy line to Mr Bates at the start.
