Tiistai-illoilla on nyt tarkoitus. YLE on viime aikoina kunnostautunut ja näyttänyt Downton Abbey'ä Suomessa tuoreeltaan, kun se pyörii vielä Briteissä. Sarjan viides kausi esitetään loka-tammikuun aikana tiistaisin klo 21 TV1:ssä.
Nyt eletään vuotta 1924. Toivottavasti ärhäkkä Granthamin leskikreivitär Lady Violet Crawley on yhtä vauhdissa kuin ennenkin!
Lady Violetin kuolemattomia lausahduksia
"If I were to search for logic, I would not look for it in the English upper-class."
Violet: "You are quite wonderful, the way you see room for improvement wherever you look. I never knew such reforming zeal."
Isobel: "I take that as a compliment."
Violet: "I must have said it wrong."
Robertin mustasta rusetista: "Do you think I might have a drink? Oh, I'm so sorry – I thought you were a waiter."
Isobel: "I think Cousin Robert is referring to Ethel's work as a prostitute."
Violet: "Well, of course these days servants are very hard to find."
Robert: I thought you didn't like him?
Violet: So what? I have plenty of friends I don't like.
"'Lie' is so unmusical a word."
Violet: "I'm so looking forward to seeing your mother again. When I'm with her, I'm reminded of the virtues of the English."
Matthew: "But isn't she American?"
Edithin mahdollisuudesta kirjoittaa kolumni sanomalehteen: "When may she expect an offer to appear on the London stage?”
Isobel: "How you hate to be wrong!"
Violet: "I wouldn't know, I'm not familiar with the sensation."
"An Aristocrat without servants is about as useful as a glass hammer."
