Only a few more hours....

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?

Peace,
Linda

Just one more hour. Bates and the Dowager Countess and of course, Lady Mary and Matthew Crawley - they are all my favs.

Linda, my son gave me Season 1 and 2 for Christmas so now I have a lot of watching to do before I can watch the PVR'd versions that I started PVRing last night. I have watched 6 hours now and will continue until I catch up!! Glad you have endorsed it, as I now love it too.

Favs on Downton Abbey? Daisy should be on the list somewhere! Wasn't it a great episode -- so sorry for Mrs.Hughes though. Jeanne Kaye

I have never watched it. Actually the girls were talking about it at quilting today. One of them has the first two seasons on DVD. I may borrow to get caught up.

I love it too, and couldn't wait for it to start again. I'm always so sad when a season of a show I like comes to an end. I think Anna is one of my favorite characters, although so is the Dowager Countess. And I love the current Countess. She's an American (as am I), and I think that's every little girl's dream, to marry into English aristocracy!
