I know I bashed Downton Abbey: S3 particularly the season finale but there are a few good surprises in store for the show. First Paul Giamatti plays Cora’s playboy brother. Giamatti and playboy in the same sentence peaked my interest. Second and most importantly for me from PBS’s website,
Tom Cullen as Lord Gillingham, an old family friend of the Crawleys who visits the family as a guest for a house party.
Tom played the dreamy, still waters run deep Russell in the award-winning British indie, Weekend from 2011. I own Weekend on blu-ray. I’ve been excited to see Tom and Chris New (who played Glen) in different roles. This is a very exciting turn of events. Now if I can just stomach Mary’s atomic dourness over Matthew’s death.
