The countdown to the New Year has come and gone, now it’s time to countdown to the premier of Downton Abbey! Get excited! *squeal*
I know what I will be doing Sunday, January 5 at 9/8c!
I am completely vested in this show. I have been watching it from the beginning and surprisingly enough even OB is hooked. If you haven’t seen this show you still have time to have an all night marathon and watch the previous seasons on Netflix.
Downton Abbey has everything, battle of the classes, scandal, love, tragedy, false imprisonment and one season there was even a cover-up. Tip-toeing through the shadows of the grand Downton Abbey all to protect a ladies’ reputation from scandal.
There was quite a “row” among the fans about how last season ended. It was sad but, it was also kind of a cop-out. I expected better from you Julian Fellows! However, that will not keep me from wanting to watch the new season and see how such a tragedy is handled by the Downton clan.
I can’t wait to see what is in store for season 4. What is in store for Mary? Will Edith run off with the publisher? Will Daisy find love? Am I the only one that wants Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes to get together? So many possibilities! Also! Did you now that the show has already been renewed for a 5th season? More Downton is on the horizon! All is right in the world!
Of course you can’t watch Downton Abbey without a proper cup of tea and a proper cup of tea needs a proper scone. This is why I made some tender Honey & Ginger Cream Scones. These scones are out of this world and the combination of honey and ginger is something to flip out about. Serve these scones with a cup of Earl Grey and a smear of clotted cream or lemon curd and you would swear that Mrs. Patmore made them herself.
Do you watch Downton Abbey? Who is your favorite Downton character? Mine is Violet, The Dowager Countess of Grantham played by Maggie Smith. That old lady is a hoot! She tells it like it is the the most polite and proper way possible.
