Oh Lady Mary | Downton Abbey [+5x01]

I think I figured out why Mrs. Hughes had a cancer scare…IT’S FROM STRESS CAUSE SHE PUTS HER SELF IN EVERYONE’S BUSINESS.

I SAW HER ASS SNEAKING AROUND THE FIRE ENGINE TRYING TO HEAR WHAT EDITH WAS SAYING.

and yeah could have been a total coincidence but from that look she gave Drewe, you know, YOU KNOW SHE IS GONNA GO DIGGING FOR SHIT.

THEN LET’S NOT FORGET THE AIR VENT EAVESDROPPING, THE BATES TICKET FIASCO, AND HER GENERAL EXISTENCE AT DOWNTON ABBEY.

…DAMN ELSIE CHILL

Downton Abbey – Yes, one is aware this is not a book

If Downton has left one wanting for riveting British class drama, try these…

The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishguro for an aged butler reflecting on a life of service to a “great gentleman”

Atonement by Iain McEwan for young love torn apart by class, war, and misunderstanding

Longbourn by Jo Baker for below stairs drama in a retelling of Pride and Prejudice from the servants’ perspective

The Suspicions of Mr Witcher by Kate Summerscale for a whodunnit at a wealthy estate, based on real events
