    Dreadful, terrible news...Briony McRoberts, wife of David Robb (Dr. Clarkson), apparently committed suicide! :eek: My heart goes out to him and his family.

    What a terrible way to die. If I were going to kill myself I would take pills.

    I had a funny dream last night. I dreamed that Betty White was playing Cora's grandmother. When I woke up I thought, what a good idea!

    I finally finished the marathon, watching the three seasons over the last few weeks. I watched the UK version of seasons 1-2 on DVD, then the PBS version of season three up until the Highlands special, which didn't record, and I just retrieved the season 3 DVDs in Seattle this week.

    I found Mary and Matthew unbearable, aside from when Matthew was whipping the estate into shape, and thought they deserved each other.

    There are many attractive men of all ages in the series, but my favorite is the guy who plays Tom Branson; his accent reminds me of my ex-coworkers in Dublin that I still miss after nearly a decade.

    I've never truly warmed to Mary; I sometimes feel sorry for her...often dislike her...although I do think her relationship with Matthew softened her. I always liked him. But now that he's gone, I fear truly bitchy Mary will return.

    I adore Branson! Handsome, loving, a bit of a rebel...and that accent...aaaaahhhhh.... :swoon:

    Season 4 will be adding some truly attractive new men...two as friends/potential suitors for Mary, one as a new valet, and one an African-American jazz singer.

    Tom Cullen looks very familiar, but I've never seen anything on his IMDB list.

    Even though I though he character was a twerp, I love Dan Stevens' voice. I hope these guys are upgrades on the Matthew character.

    This isn't specifically about Downton Abbey, but these pictures of London in the 1920's gives a sense of the atmosphere and look of the time period of the current soon-to-be Season 4:
