Daisy Lewis set to be Tom Branson love interest!


Daisy Lewis, the 28-year old actress, has joined the cast of Downton Abbey. It seemed that Tom was in danger after the death of his wife giving birth to their child. There seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel as Daisy Lewis become a love interest. Daisy Lewis is set up to be a Live in Nanny for the child.
For those of you who don’t remember or know, Tom (Allen Leech) originally was a Chauffer. He began a pretty touchy romance with Sybil, which the family strongly shunned. She quickly got pregnant and returned to the Abbey. Sybil as we all know, took pretty bad medical advice making her more prone to death, which she succumbed to.



Netflix also “grabs hold” onto License


Amazon was the first to catch the renowned television show, Downton Abbey. Amazon has extended its contract with the golden child, PBS in its hit series Downton Abbey. Furthermore, Amazon is the mean older brother. What they want, they get… and they aren’t sharing. Netflix, the largest online video company has made a deal with PBS to “run” the past seasons of Downton Abbey, rather than the ability to stream the new season. They aren’t that lucky, “once the young sibling, always the younger sibling.”
Netflix is changing it’s name sort to speak. Originally, Netflix was a large vault for movie relics. They now understand that the big piece of the pie is streaming online television shows and miniseries. Getting the rights, for instance, to HBO’s Game of Thrones, would be a mega hit, especially as the show gains notoriety and already extended up to a 9th season.
Amazon has scored the blow to this television series and although having the past shows of Downton Abbey is nice, increase in revenue and viewership/membership would be more appealing with sole proprietorship of Downton Abbey. I think we will see more sibling rivalry in the future.


P Diddy – Downton Abbey? (Funny or Die)

As we know without a doubt, Downton Abbey is most certainly the whitest show on television. This is no shock as it takes place in the Edwardian Era of Britain. Over hearing that a black man would be cast for the next installment of Downton Abbey, P Diddy, whom had been circulated to be that Black Man (which is completely false), took it upon himself to create a “Funny or Die” spoof of Downton Abbey with the new black owner of Downton Abbey, Mr. Wilcott. It has suspense and crazy drama that by my standards, is a breath of fresh air.
It is very important that you listen to Mr. Wilcott as he destroys the very nature and pronunciation of Downton Abbey, which is like music to my ears. If P Diddy actually was on the show, I would watch it!
