Tweet from Downton Abbey (@DowntonAbbey)

Downton Abbey (@DowntonAbbey)
Although the Crawleys may have a varied life at home and socially, for the servants, their day is almost the same every day! #Downton

I had a rather different experience of this a few weeks ago. 

Fired up an episode of Downton Abbey. The Crawleys were in the sitting room, having tea. Mary being bitchy, Edith looking pinched, Branson making a brave face of it. Then, the action switched downstairs and as soon as Mrs Patmore started talking I realized it was an episode I'd already seen. The people downstairs are actually accomplishing something everyday, whereas the Crawleys are usually just entertaining themselves, so their lives run together in a long, velvety blur.

Now, I sound like Miss Bunting don't I?
