January 6. Finally! I have been waiting for this day for months. And now I have only a few more hours to wait. Tonight is the beginning of Season 3 of Downton Abbey on PBS and it seems like it has taken forever for this day to arrive. I love this BBC drama - the story, the characters - both the aristocratic Crawleys and their servants, the costumes (oh my!!), Highclere Castle and the beautiful English countryside.. I love it all.
Do you watch this series? Who is your favourite character? I can't pick just one (or even two) although Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham, played by Dame Maggie Smith is certainly at the top of my list. I love her sharp wit and sarcastic one-liners, not to mention her costumes, especially the hats....oh be still my heart! Lady Mary Crawley, Bates and Anna are also all high on my Favs list.
Oh I can hardly contain myself. I don't think I've ever looked forward to several hours of television more than this... Only 2 hours, 33 minutes now.. but who's counting?
