    If anyone remembers her in Sense and Sensibility, you can expect awesome snarks.

    My favorite Harriet Walter role is Harriet Vane in the Peter Wimsey series. Her voice was a little too high -- Harriet's supposed to have a "curious, deep voice" -- but other than that, she was perfect.

    I'm not sure where George has come from. I'm pretty sure that Matthew's father's name was mentioned at one point as Reginald.

    Perhaps George is Grandfather Grantham's name. (the Dowager's hubby)

    I agree. I'd actually rather see her having to deal with the aftermath of his death and her pain, but I agree that they'll probably move her along to something else quickly.

    According to the BBC website she will play a house guest and sing too!

    So I can't miss that episode naturally. How was she tempted? She must be a very big fan!

    ITA---I thought she was much too nice in "Law and Order" but was she ever memorable in "Sense and Sensibility"---especially when Lucy visits.

    ^ I loved her in Law & Order UK too -- I thought it was a great departure from the stock "tough and gritty" captain character we see so often in US police shows. (And I hope her Downton casting doesn't mean the end of that character or series.)

    But she'll always be Harriet Vane to me.

    I'm guessing it's after the monarch of the time, King George V.

    Oh yes, Harriet Walter. A perfect chum for Lady Violet. Can't wait for Season 4!

    I just finished Season 2. I'm a bit hesitant to start Season 3, knowing who dies. Sybil and Matthew are two of my favorite characters. I was a bit slow to warm to the Matthew and Mary pairing but they won me over and I can't imagine the show without him.

    Apologies if this has been posted somewhere upthread but this had me

    Is it bad that I thought that a Downton Abbey musical would actually be really fun? lol!
