I'm really desperately looking for the titel of the composition of season 6/ finale when mr barrow is saying goodbye.
Was anyone else as annoyed with Miss Bunting, as I was? She was so rude and obnoxious, she claimed to love Tom, but did nothing but antagonize Robert.
Hi, I would like to know what is the music from the Servants' Ball - there is some really nice, cheerful music just after the scene with the maid affair being discovered.
Can anybody tell me the name of the song?
Where did Edith suddenly get the typing skill she used in the episode where the editor walked out?
In the finale episode, when Lord & Lady Grantham arrive at Brancaster Castle, they look around at it as if they had never been there before. Why? Hadn't they been there when they were invited by the Sinderby's for hunting? And hadn't Robert been there when he was young and single?
How old would you have to be to start working as a servant in downton times? I was looking at the info for Thomas and it says his birth date is 1896 so wouldn't that make him 14 Or 15 when he started working there in 1910? I was just wondering if that would be the minimum age back then for working as a junior footman or as another servant. And how old would Thomas have been at the beginning of the series?
When taking care of the dowager, why does Isabelle say "The family took me in and kept me close while living in Cannes"?
I started watching DA about 10 days ago and now im at s06e08. I remember that i didnt like Mary as much in the first few episodes but later on I was rooting on her. And after Sybil died, Edith and Mary talked and I thought their fighting came to its end. But since then Mary is acting so awful. In this season, it's pain for me nearly everytime she's on the screen because of the "entitled cold snobbish" look I always see on her face? I'm just at the part when she reveals Edith's secret about Marigold to Bertie. And dammit I do HATE her. I don't think she deserves a happy ending at all. I know that of course she will have a happy ending with Talbot but I wish she hadnt. Or that someone makes her realise what an awful way she is behaving. I understand that she is nice to Anna and Carson and that Edith revealed her secret about Pamuk, but the hell.. I hope she is punished for it.
At the Servant's Ball (after Rosamund finds her "admirer" in bed with her maid, there's a dance scene, in which Isobel dances with Carson, Mrs Padmore with Matthew and Edith with Thomas, BUT does anybody know the song/musical piece they used in that scene? It is so great, I love music from the 1900s, 1910s,...
Please tell me if you know it!
Why was Mr. Green supposed to be addressed as "Mr. Gillingham" in the first episode he appears in Season 4? Were all valets addressed by their employers' last name traditionally? if so why; some remnant of English paternalism/feudalism or something like that? I haven't finished the whole season yet, so I'm sorry if this is answered later in the series.
why is Sarah Crowden as Lady Manville not in the listings ?
Can you tell me the music-genre / how to find such music: This little Band playing, when Lady Mary is in London and meets Henry Talbot for dinner?!
Thank you very much!
Wonder why neither Netflix or Hulu have it uploaded, both have the series ending with episode 8. Had to read about it here.
Hello, can someone help me. I'd like to know where Cavenham Park (home of Larry and Amelia, former home of Lord Merton) is situated. Is it in Downton, in the neighbourhood or somewhere in Yorkshire? How far from Downton Abbey is it? The best I can find on this site is "Yorkshire". Thanks for your answer. ;-)
I'm curious about the origins of the Crawleys. Where do their status, land and wealth come from. With their seat at Downton Abbey, should we understand that the Crawleys were jumped-up Tudor courtiers rewarded at the Dissolution with this beautiful estate ?
I've been searching for a Carson/Mrs Hughes (Chelsie) scene where Mrs Hughes chides or jokes with Carson about his lack of self-awareness. Can anyone tell me what ep it was in?
I was wondeing - the wiki lists Mrs. Barrow as dead, but I don't remember bieng told that in the series. The only place I remember her being mentioned at all, in fact, was when he was talking with Matthew in the trenches and said "If only my mother could see me now", which can be a sign that someone is dead, but can also mean they're just a long way off and unable to see what's become of someone.
Is this clarified somewhere that I'm not aware of or are people simply assuming from the phrasing and the fact that she (along with the rest of his family, including his very alive father) are always refered to in the past tense in cut scenes and such?
