Are you a Downton Abbey Fan?

At Christmas, I became somewhat addicted to the British series Downton Abbey. We watched the first season in a couple of days. Since then, Season 2 has been playing on PBS and every Sunday evening, I like nothing better than to settle down with a cup of tea and watch the latest installment in the British saga. Oh and Maggie Smith is priceless. Her one-liners leave me in stitches.

If you're wondering what all the fuss is about, check out this article on BBC. It's a fun read.

Maggie Smith as Lady Grantham

Hugh Bonneville as Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham


  1. I'm a big fan of Downton Abbey and I also watched the first series in a couple of days. Look out for the Christmas special episode that played over here in England on Christmas day, just after the end of the second series.

    My favourite Maggie Smith one-liner from Downton: "Weekend? What's a weekend?" :D

  2. Thanks for sharing the article know I am a huge fan! Can't wait for Sunday...

  3. Hey Sally, that's the one liner I love as well. She's priceless.
