#DowntonAbbey  peeps - how do you think Julian Fellowes should end the show? I'm working on a blog post on that topic - how fans think the show should end. Share your thoughts here by Tuesday May 5 and you'll be part of the post. Here is the blog I write for: http://www.gpb.org/blogs/desperate-for-downton/2015/04/30/downton-abbey-how-do-you-think-it-should-end
Authors Valerie Bowman and Ashlyn Macnamara say it's time for "Downton Abbey's" Thomas the under butler to get his happy ending. How do you think the series should end?

I meant to add this a while back, but forgot.
I once hard that Fellowes didn't get rid of characters unless the actors asked. Then I think he kills them off. So, maybe he needs to take a page from George R R Martin & go all Final Destination. Except for Carson & Hughes - they live happily ever after. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Qhp3wnKyKA

Unfortunately we will not be stuck with Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes for much longer. Downton Abbey is ending after season 6: http://www.gpb.org/blogs/desperate-for-downton/2015/03/26/it%E2%80%99s-official-downton-abbey-ending-after-season-6
As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end and the show “Downton Abbey” is not immune. The Crawley family drama is coming to a close.

Loved that Rob James Collier joked about Phyllis Logan getting Botox when Kate Middleton visited the set. #Truetohimselfhttp://www.gpb.org/blogs/desperate-for-downton/2015/03/12/welcome-downton-kate-highlights-of-the-royal-visit
Welcome to Downton Abbey, Kate Middleton - and by Downton Abbey, I mean the famous Ealing Studios where the servants’ parts of the show are filmed. The Duchess of Cambridge got an exclusive tour and meet and greet with the cast and crew today. The itinerary included a pit stop in the hair and make-up department, a cast and crew portrait and a viewing of a scene being filmed. Judging by the photos tweeted and recaps written, everyone had a lovely ...

I am sure you'd be grinning from ear to ear too if you met Baxter, Mr. Moseley and Lady Edith. I did 2 weeks ago at the Sea Island Resort in Georgia during their Downton Abbey weekend. More on that to come.

Rob James-Collier hopes your love of “Star Wars”, “Downton Abbey” or both will entice you to help him raise money to run the London Marathon in order to benefit the MS Centre London. So he created this spoof.

Could season 6 be “Downton Abbey’s” last? The folks at the “The Daily Mirror” and “People” magazine are saying it's so.

Part 2 of Mrs. Patmore's visit to Atlanta. Her husband sat in the Millenium Falcon! Read on: http://www.gpb.org/blogs/desperate-for-downton/2015/01/22/photos-mrs-patmore-visits-swan-coach-house-for-gpb-luncheon
Two weeks ago, Lesley Nicol (aka Mrs Patmore) visited Atlanta for the 2015 International Gift and Home Furnishings Market. She spent time with guests of Georgia Public Broadcasting during a special tea. Here are some tidbits she shared at the luncheon.

Wish she could have brought us along! My co-blogger Rachel Buchman got to interview Lesley Nicol a.k.a Mrs. Patmore. Here is the result of that interview: http://www.gpb.org/blogs/desperate-for-downton/2015/01/15/meeting-mrs-patmore-lesley-nicol-on-friendship-and-on-screen
Lesley Nicol seems nothing like her head cook counterpart on "Downton Abbey". But like Mrs. Patmore, the role that made her star rise, she commands a room with her presence. She did so at an Atlanta History Center luncheon sponsored by Georgia Public Broadcasting. And held my attention!

In the second part of my interview with "Downton Abbey" historical advisor Alastair Bruce, he answers a fan question from JeannieBinVA about why the staff lines up outside the estate to greet visitors. He also confides why he feels Americans appreciate British history more.

By now you’ve watched the premiere episode of “Downton Abbey” season 5. (Stop reading this if you haven't!) The cast does a better job of summarizing the episode than I do; they have such marvelous accents! Here’s a cast recap of “Downton Abbey” season 5 episode 1.
