Sybil (above): gone but not forgotten! The penultimate episode of series three was moderately pedestrian. Click here for review. What with Matthew and his interminably tedious theories about estate management, techniques and processes. He has become so boring, little wonder Lady Mary is not pregnant. She probably falls asleep listening to him before they can do anything. It wasn’t like this with Mr Pamuk.
Speaking of interrupted nocturnal encounters, this was tonight’s big excitement: Matthew’s cack-handed seduction of Jimmy. Did he employ the flesh-coloured leather-gloved paw of doom? We cannot know. Predictions for series finale: Thomas is forced to leave the house. Mr Carson and Mrs Hughes finally get it on. And Lady Edith writes one newspaper column and then quits. What a waste of time that was. The column. And the series. Never mind. It’s only our lives we’re wasting.
