|Dame Maggie Smith as Lady Violet|
Life at Downton is full of human intrigue, class distinction, passion and social commentary of the day. The wit of Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess of Grantham is priceless. She has the best asides than anyone I have had the pleasure of watching. Whether as Professor McGonagall in Harry Potter or this grand dame, the undertones are clear and she cuts to the chase.
If you have not tuned in give it a try. Of course, starting on season one is your best bet to get the most out of the story.
Last week and opulent wedding...there is another wedding coming soon...will it be tonight?
