Chapter 5

WW1 AU, 1916. Sergeant John Bates has been severely injured in the line of duty at the Battle of the Somme and is sent to a rehabilitation hospital back in England where he meets Nurse Anna Smith. Will she be able to bring him out of the shadows? Will he allow her to help him on the road to recovery?


“Courtship is not permitted among the servants, among the staff. It was frowned upon. So it’s a very gentle, drawn up process. Which I loved. I loved that process. We [Joanne and I] both did. It was a very tender, very delicate, incremental path towards togetherness.”

Brendan Coyle, The Manners of Downton Abbey
