Downton Abbey Season 2 | Masterpiece | PBS

I’m delighted that Downton Abbey is back on the air. How are the residents, upstairs and down coping with the war? As the program is shown at the same time as The Good Wife, I’m watching Downton Abbey online. Well, that wasn’t a great choice. The picture quality doesn’t cut it.

I’m only a half hour into it and have just seen Bates’ wife and am surprised to hear that Matthew’s engaged.

  1. Your visitors and book lovers across teh world may wish to know that in addition to the sanitised “Lady Almina And The Real Downton Abbey..”…there is a much more controversial account of Almina’s nine decades of living in a book entitled “ The Life and Secrets of Almina Carnarvon.” “A Candid biography of the 5th Countess of Carnarvon of Tutankhamun fame.”

    Also from the same author, William Cross, FSA Scot, is “ Lady Carnarvon’s Nursing Homes : Nursing the Privileged in Wartime and Peace” which deals with Almina’s role as a uncompromising matron of Highclere Military Hospital during the Great War, and her later years running private hospitals in London. Many of Almina’s famous patients are revealed in these books. The testimony within these titles comes from the memories and recollections of one of Almina’s godsons, whose mother was Almina’s housekeeper and companion for over thirty years.

  5. Following on from my books on Lady Evelyn Stanhope and Elsie Howard, the two Fourth Countesses of Carnarvon and Almina Wombwell, the indefatigable Fifth Countesses of Carnarvon, I have now completed a book on the two Sixth Countesses of Carnarvon. ” Catherine and Tilly: Porchey Carnarvon’s Two Duped Wives. The Tragic Tales of the Sixth Countesses of Carnarvon” . This will play out alongside Highclere’s latest romp on the American refugee Catherine Wendell. My narrative draws on original papers, newspapers and the Wendell papers in Portsmouth Athenaeum, in Maine, USA as well as the good will of members of the Wendell family. It will also be based on interviews and testimony from several people who knew and dearly loved Catherine. The book also includes a long detailed narrative on the life and times of Tilly Losch the great dancer, and bit part actress, who was Countess of Carnarvon from 1939-1947.
