Something along the lines of Matthew accusing him of running Downton into the ground and when Mary said she was sure he hadn't said quite that, Robert replied that it was as good as.

It wasn't very nice of him to try to cause mischief between his daughter and her husband, especially when Mary was already upset about losing her sister.

Ooh, a new thread.

I was trying to reply to Bobby'sgirl (I feel I should sing that!).

Aw, Sunday will be a happy day for Bates and Anna fans. I'm looking forward to seeing them reunited. I think many of us feel we've served his time for him.....

TV Times has an interview and a lovely pic of them at the cricket match in ep8. It's very similar to this one:

Actually you're right I didn't mean to sound insulting, maybe cast someone else in the role or at the very least written Bates character to be a bit more interesting/ humorous.
In the beginning, I found Bates more interesting than he is now, but I think part of the problem is that he's become as much of a drip as 'Mary Sue' Anna. I'd be happy for little Miss Sunshine and her gloomy 'Mistah Bates' to move on to pastures new. Her prim routine is about as appealing as his 'gone to seed' Mr Rochester.

My opinion on Bates' appearance has nothing to do with his age. I actually find Dr. Clarkson attractive. I just think he's let himself go to the point that he is not good enough for Anna. Those big, saggy jowls are a turn-off, and the shirtless scene was something I never needed to see.

Looks aren't everything. Unfortunately, I hate his personality too. He's pretty much put her through Hell, when you think about it.

There is already an episode description out for 3.08, but I doubt it tells us any of the good stuff. Or bad stuff.

This is the first time I've ever been part of a Part 2 thread

Lots of interesting supporting characters. Rosamund is back, as well as Mrs. Bryant (is she going to invite Ethel to move into her house so that she could be closer to Charlie)?? And Molesley's dad from the flower show in S1 going to make an appearance. I wonder for what.

And lots of interesting new characters. We all have heard about Lady Rose and

.

The Gregson's character seems to be interesting? Will he be similar to Sir Anthony? Or will he turn out to be a new Sir Richard?

There's also Dr.Clarkson, a second doctor, and a police inspector. Will this means someone else will kick the bucket and/or get arrested in this episode? We'll just have to wait and see

Sadly I think you're right. He was rather yummy in Larkrise to Candleford.

He's 6 months younger than me but looks older. My husband is 51 this year but looks younger than Brendan Coyle now.

Having said that I do still have a bit of a soft spot for Brendan Coyle - I've not gone off him completely

Yes, I couldn't believe how old Brendan Coyle was - he's the samage as me ex husband but I thought he was mid 50s. Mind you, same with Hugh Bonneville, he looks way older than his age!

I think there's only about a month between them.

The actress who plays O'Brien has joined the second series of The Syndicate. Curious to know when this is filmed as Downton is filmed through spring and summer and then she films Benidorm through summer/autumn.

And they could both easily be 55!

My daughter sent me the above. [There are a couple of rude bits so it's for adults and be warned if you are easily offended.]

Enjoy!

He's marvellous, isn't he? Graham Norton needs to get him on his show. Talented and funny man.
