1:35 Steam-filled stations are such an odd concept to me, although it’s obvious.
7:33 Mr Carson getting jealous in the garden.
10:40 “You’re not to make things awkward,” he says, as if he hasn’t watched the previous series'.
16:27 Mr Barrow is caught between a rock and a hard place, clearly.
19:18 They travel with detectives? Or do they mean like security?
24:28 Mark Addy has hardly changed!
28:26 Do the royals really get sick of the smell of new paint?
38:52 Andy’s not doing himself any favours being a dick.
46:15 Ah the fake smiles of family politics.
51:55 As if Lady Mary isn’t going to get involved when he says ’leave this to me.'
59:46 This does feel like a couple of episodes joined together.
1:13:54 He may not have done himself proud this episode but you can’t argue with Carson’s announcing voice.
1:20:06 “We are quite used to people behaving strangely when we are near.”
1:40:28 I always forget how formal this all is. So glad to be on the earth now and not then.
1:44:06 The houses in this show!
1:56:30 The house yes, the people no.


There’s not really a lot to say about this, it’s just the TV show for an extended period of time. These are characters that are so beloved and they all go on a little adventure both above and below stairs. It’s nice, charming, the cast do what they do best, and I quite enjoyed it.

Rating: 4 / 5
