Downtown Abbey, Season II

As Laura Linney said..."Worth the wait"

Are you watching???  I just saw the first episode of Season II and am so tempted to order the dvd so I don't have to wait.  But alas, I will hold on and see it weekly!  Delicious anticipation...

 Are you rooting for Lady Mary and Matthew to be together?  I am, although I didn't like how she treated him in the beginning.

(I LOVE Hugh Bonneville)
World War I brought great changes to Europe and  Great Britain.  Downton Abbey reflects the changes in  social structure expedited by the war.  Things these upper class characters do would never have been considered doing before the war, they took on during it.  There were changes for the lower classes as well as it seems we will see unfolding.  The horrors of war are shown too .

Can't wait for next week!  (It's still loads of fun to see the way things were done, even in wartime)

Hope you are enjoying too!!!!


  1. Is this just the most beautifully photographed story or what?!?! And the story just keeps me riveted. I am not a TV person and I love this series.

  2. Thanks for reminding me that it's back. I need to go set it to record on our television. I'm so excited; it's such a magnificent series. Cherry Kay

  3. Haven't even heard of it! What channel are you watching it on? Sounds fabulous.

    1. It's on PBS Masterpiece's on Sunday night here in upstate NY

  4. I haven't heard of it either, sounds wonderful! I'm going to check it out! Thanks for the heads up!


  5. Hi Tess!

    I just finished watching the 1st episode of this season, having recorded it the other day at 2 a.m. I want Lady Mary and Matthew to get together! I want Bates' wife to get hit by a train! Lots of intrigue -- can't wait for next week.

    You asked about the china -- it is Royal Winton, "Welbeck"


  6. I am LOVING Season 2! Yes, I'm rooting for Mary and Matthew, as well as Mr. Bates and Anna. I was horrified when Mrs. Bates turned up and was so vengeful! Even Edith seems capable of redemption this season.

  7. I am obsessed with this show!

  8. Tess, thanks for visiting my table this week. To answer your question, yes, I am LOVING Downton Abbey this season! I've enjoying seeing Lady Grantham put Cora in her place, I must confess! And things just have to work out for Anna and Mr. Bates!

  9. I've seen this mentioned in several different places and it seems right up my alley! Finally checked our local PBS listings and missed it by one day (shown Sunday nights, here) so I'll have to remember to watch this coming weekend!
