Mrs. Patmore to Ivy (referring to Jimmy): You never give up, do you? He’s not interested. Ivy’s reply: He must be interested in someone. . He’s young, isn’t he?
It reminds me of the similar advice Mrs. Patmore gave to Daisy at the time she was pursuing Thomas, even tone of her voice and her facial express was almost the same, it’s like she wants to tell Ivy “he’s not a ladies man” like she told once Daisy.. Does Mrs. Patmore have a sixth sense in recognition of everyone’s sexuality? And can it be one of the many hints that Jimmy is homosexual?
Actress Lesley Nicol, who plays Downton Abbey’s “Mrs. Patmore,” stopped by Martha Stewart’s New York City test kitchen to see Martha’s “Gingerbread Abbey” created in honor of the upcoming season 5 premiere on MASTERPIECE.
