It was everything you might have expected, including little bits of trailed plot that will come in for the next series. Bit disappointed with Shirley MacLaine; they didn't seem to have made the most of her. Maybe that's to come.
Didn't they cover the illegitimate baby story in the last series - I think the housekeeper was very kind to the unmarried mother. I am going to have to google the story lines from last time! (Did somebody just ask about memory)
John Lewis do good ads don't they? I particularly liked the one about a woman's life from birth to being a mother and (I think) grandmother to the song "Always a woman". Good old escapist costume drama - thank you ITV!!
proudnana. I really enjoyed it, I love to look at the costumes and the sets. The dresses are so lovely does anyone else envy the style of the day? Before any old misery points out, only for the wealthy, I know.
Mind you, you had to be tall to carry them off, so that's me out then.
Yes, I do love the style of the period for women - being tall, I think I could have carried it off.... I just love the way Downton immediately wafts me off into another world - thought last night's opening episode was perfect!
