Have you seen or heard? Hold onto your knickers. It be true. The Downton Abbey movie begins filming next week.
Really hoping Lady Mary is down on her luck and having to settle amongst the poor in this one. I don’t mind if she’s relocated to a stone cottage with a tin sink in the hall, and outside loo, all down the road from Downton, or even up in London in a 2 up 2 down terrace she shares with a family of 10, most of whom are under the age of 2. Not overly bothered if she is married or not, but it would be nice if she’d put on a bit of weight because she really is way too thin to cope with the chill.
Lord Grantham and his lady need a bit of a shake-up too. My money is on them having themed murder mystery weekends where all they really do is drink endless cocktails while wearing knee-length costumes that allow them to float and fall about in a newly installed, heated swimming pool.
Lady Edith, she must have a good life this time around, because, for goodness sake, she had the crappiest life of them all.
Downstairs, well please no more weeping over husbands being framed for murder and whatnot. Rather let’s have one of these good servants inherit a fortune and make a grab for Downton itself, or at least fall in the pool with a tray of cocktails while Lady Grantham reaches for another olive.
And as for those children. Well, let them be happy little people with no illness or anything.
