    My first thought upon seeing Mary's new suitor was "Isn't he a little old for her?" Then I looked again and thought, "Get out of the way, Mary, I want him!!"

    I don't know how widespread VisionTV in Canada is, but I've just seen them advertise that they're going to run the first series of Downton starting tonight at 9 pm. From the listings it appears that it will be shown weekly on Wednesdays. AFAIK this will be the first time that it's been shown in Canada other than on cross-border PBS stations. They've got it in a 1 1/2 hour time slot tonight and 60 minute time slot next week. Since they run commercials, perhaps that means it will be shown in its original form as shown on ITV with the scenes that were missing on PBS!

    Thanks so much for this. Very cool to see the press pack. I was afraid to look at it all, but couldn't resist checking to see

    Spoiler



    Also I've been meaning to post this Daily Mail article with lots of set pictures from the filming of series 2. I didn't read it too closely because I was fearful of anything TOO spoilery, but the pictures are great. I believe that the second series premieres in the UK in September, so it's getting close!

    I wouldn't bet on it being "in its original form." Vision is notorious for horrendously bad commercial breaks -- even if the program originally had commercials, they add more breaks, and in really, really bad places. I swear during Doc Martin they broke in mid-sentence half the time. I'm just glad I didn't have to rely on them for Downton Abbey.

    Watched DA on PBS, and am now re-watching it. I want it fresher in my mind when the next series starts.

    ^Great in depth article. I had no idea that Julian Fellows the creator of Downton Abbey was one of the actors in Monarch on the Glenn until I saw his photo in this article. I loved that show as I do all of his work. What an interesting and creative life he has led.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I'd like to know that, too. I was hoping to find somebody streaming it live yesterday, but no luck.

    So far, I can just share a link to the series 2 promo, which looks very good.

    Downton Abbey won 4 Emmys last night, to make a total of 6 including last week's technical awards:

    Outstanding Mini-Series or Movie
    Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Mini-Series or Movie - Maggie Smith (not present at the ceremony)
    Outstanding Writing for A Miniseries, Movie Or A Dramatic Special
    Outstanding Directing For A Miniseries, Movie Or A Dramatic Special
    Outstanding Costumes For A Miniseries, Movie Or A Special
    Outstanding Cinematography For A Miniseries Or Movie

    I'm sorry that US viewers will have to wait for PBS, it seems.

    Unless you can access ITV player and somehow un-geoblock yourself then I don't know how you can watch unless someone posts it on youtube. (And I'd imagine that would be taken down pretty quickly.) Too much money at stake for ITV from worldwide sales revenue.

    Anyway without giving too much away, the first episode was glorious. Dame Maggie stole every scene she was in as per usual and had some absolute howlers for one-liners. Much gorgeous photography and it really was in with a bang. No dragging things out to develop characters etc. Those that were new were established in double quick time. Looks like O'Brien is going to have some bitchy competition from a new maid

    Thanks for the updates. Anxiously awaiting PBS. Is Thomas out of the series?

    Nope he re-appears in the middle of the first episode when he unexpectedly bumps into a familiar face while serving at the front in WW1. It's not long before we see his true nature coming through and that's all I'll say

    Damn. Our PBS programming totally stinks. i.e., for the last three years they have shown nothing but constant repeats of New Tricks - yet they haven't even shown the first episode explaining how the team got together so I assume our local PBS just jumped in during a second or third year of the show. I wish they would either start the series from the beginning and show one episode once and move on or just drop the series altogether.

    I am not adverse to spoilers so hope to see a few more about DA. Love that series!!!!!
