We, with great trepidation and a mounting sense of loss, watched the ‘Downton Abbey‘ Finale last night — having recorded it on Sunday.
It was good. Not as dramatic as I had expected. In the end a very British, kind of Victorian, possibly Jane Austenish, ending. Very positive. Upbeat and sentimental.
I gather (see below) that people expected more. Well I definitely would have introduced Michael Gregson back in that Finale. I kept on waiting for him to come and stop the wedding. And when that didn’t happen I would have closed out the SERIES with Carson announcing that Michael Gregson was at the door. Boom! Wouldn’t that have left everybody shocked.
