i’m never down for long
MODERN DOWNTON AU → In which Mary is struggling to get through her final year of university, Matthew wings it (while keeping in touch with his mum), Tom skips class more often than he attends and fresher Sybil is enjoying her long-awaited freedom away from her parents.
Canadian viewers will be able to check out the adorable Thomas Howes – AKA second footman William Mason from Downton Abbey fame – on the series Murdoch Mysteries tonight.
Here’s an on set interview with Howes conducted by CBC.
HOW DOWNTON ABBEY SHOULD END: It’s 1931. With the entail abolished by the Real Property Act of 1925, Matthew has managed to legitimize a will that appoints his and Mary’s daughter heiress to the estate. The legacy of what has always been her home now in her daughter’s hands and the country one step closer to gender equality, something her departed youngest sister passionately and admirably fought for as early as in her teens, Mary has accomplished the one thing in life she’s wished for most and she is, at last, utterly and perfectly happy.
