I thought there was a complete lack of anything happening, should have been 15 mins instead of two hours.

I was left wondering whether the script writers were making sure the programme is never resurrected.

I have never seen a single episode of Downturn Abbey. I can't abide period dramas. People in them behave in such an unnatural way, and they miss irritating details such as books which are always old and yellowed as those that survived are today. Has it not occurred to them that at the time being depicted, they were NEW?

Also I laugh at horse drawn carriages. Inevitably they are shown bowling along a road which has grass free tracks for the wheels but pure pristine grass where the horses run. Surely it can't be just me that realises this is exactly what you get with horseless carriages? If they were used by horses, it would be grass free and probably badly poached in the centre of the road.

There are many other ridiculous anachronisms with which I won't bore you, but for me anyway, they are best avoided.

Cools, I enjoyed the final episode although I do think the last two episodes seemed to be rushed and all sewn up more rapidly than they should have been., Not enough material to make another series but too many loose ends that needed to be tied up.
So pleased Granny didn't die, and that there was no miserable ending.


I think Julian Fellows is a brilliant writer, and so far as incidentals are concerned in period dramas, it is the story line that is the interest, not if the lady wears cami knickers or bloomers. Most period dramas are in fact pretty accurate in detail.

For example ; books in the 1800 were made differently, the paper made from wood shavings was not bleached and therefore was never white like todays books. Kept in damp places they also got 'foxing' which is small brown spots or blotches. so maybe the film makers have got it right after all !

Anyway, I shall miss it as much as you Cools, but by the time next September comes around......maybe something just as good will grace our screens. I wonder if Fish bought his wife the box set ?

Nothing but whingeing from the missus as talk talk naf internet was too slow for her to watch it on catch up as it kept buffering.think she finally managed to get through it last night. Must have liked it as she brought me a cup of tea this morning. Kids got her a boxed set of DA so that should keep her quiet till 2016 ......now wheres those fishing rods?

Of course its not true to life, its entertainment, but they had a good try at bringing it to the small screen, nice tale, watchable, wife enjoyed it, would have been no good if they had all been sacked for misdemeanors as in the bad old days, worth watching for the Dame Maggie Smith putdowns.

I do think the producer should have made more of an effort to put more Drama into it,The last episode was boring .
One of these programs you sit and wait for something exciting to happen and it never does.

Oh it seems just me thought Downton was great...I'm just do much of a fan that they could have just sat around and I would have enjoyed it. Don't soppose they could do much else as it was a case of just tidying up and letting us know how everyone fared. Couldn't really start anymore storylines with it ending , I just liked the way everyone was made happy , Edith and the Bates and even Barrow made good it made me feel happy...
