And a last set!

To outsiders looking in, indeed to their own family, the Earl and Countess of Grantham seemed a rather cold couple. Most would have believed it a marriage of convenience and money but for the fact that the Countess had apparently brought none with her at the time of her wedding.

The Earl was by several accounts a stern but generally fair man, who nonetheless did not take kindly to shows of emotion, and whose word was strong enough to end any conversation dead in its tracks. His wife was of a similar disposition, and although a remarkably beautiful woman, was thought by some to be prone to moments of haughtiness.
Other than this apparent mutual appreciation for restrained and conservative behaviour, and generally excellent taste, few could understand why they had married. When the Earl died, the Countess had donned black as custom bade, and appeared to continue on with her life, unchanged and still prone to moments of haughtiness.

Always very private people, who valued their time together more than anything else in the world, few knew how much the Earl and Countess had loved each other, with each the guardian of the other’s secret, that of how loving and tender the other could be. A secret the Countess, now Dowager kept with her until her own end.

"She had dyed her hair for last year’s Baftas and was rushing from the awards to the dinner. She was a little disorientated and just laughing. I liked the fact you can see a tattoo on her hand." Andy Gotts about photographing Helen Mirren

I want the DVD! Do something for God’s sake…

I’ve wished this would be released for so long. I have begged and pleaded with NT Live to rebroadcast it as an encore performance. Alas, it’s no happening!

They’ve obviously come to a point where they realize that they are both women of a certain age and of a certain background and situation, so let’s join forces and be allies here rather than rivals. I like that.

These two are cut from the same sassy cloth. They even resemble each other……seriously are they related?

Well …maybe they do seem similar here.

Congratulations to DAME Angela Lansbury! :D

I’m joining a marvellous group of women I greatly admire, like Judi Dench and Maggie Smith. It’s a lovely thing to be given that nod of approval by your own country and I really cherish it.
