A definite MUST-SEE!

I read the novel (I absolutely love Julian Fellowes as a writer!) and it's fantastic!

If you can, please DL? Thanks!!!

I'll watch anything by him, Andrew Davis and/or Sandy Welch.

I remember JulianFellows as a small-time actor.  He was a neighbor in Monarch of the Glen. I wish the BBC streamer would bring that back.

They still look good enough! Yes, I loved that show, too!

Did you know Julian Fellowes is a member of the House of Lords? He's a minor baron or some such but has always been forced to work for a living. His family isn't rich. He did well for himself, I think!

I think I've heard something about a baron.  Didn't know about the House of Lord's - unless that's a given with a title.

Speaking of Title ...

Speaking of a title ... this floored me when I only read a month ago.  I watched this yummy guy for 8 years, never hearing about this.


Kit Harington

Kit Harington was born Christopher Catesby Harington in Acton, London, to Deborah Jane (Catesby), a former playwright, and David Richard Harington, a businessman. His mother named him after 16th century British playwright and poet Christopher Marlowe, whose first name was shortened to Kit, a name Harington prefers. Harington's uncle is Sir Nicholas John Harington, the 14th Baronet Harington, and his paternal great-grandfather was Sir Richard Harington, the 12th Baronet Harington. Through his paternal grandmother, Lavender Cecilia Denny, Kit's eight times great-grandfather was King Charles II of England. Also through his father, Harington descends from politician Henry Dundas, 1st Viscount Melville, the bacon merchant T. A. Denny, clergyman Baptist Wriothesley Noel, merchant and politician Peter Baillie, peer William Legge, 4th Earl of Dartmouth, and MP Sir William Molesworth, 6th Baronet.

Waw! He kind of looks a bit like Charles II. The eyes, especially. Not the chin ...

Same striped dress as Margaret was wearing when she kissed John at the station.
Oh, dear! This brings back memories!

Also, Gillian Anderson in Bleak House and I've seen it one other time.  I think it was worn by one of the Downton sisters but not in Downton Abbey.

Must be a recycled one! It's 19th century, so ...

I watched the first episode on the second Dutch channel last evening.
This is a WINNER!
So nice, so typically British! Good actors, excellent script, details very meticulous, story rivetting!
I said it before, this is a MUST-SEE!

I'd forgotten.  I was enjoying that series but never saw the last one.  Must go looking.

It's on EPIX, I believe.
