Hearts Drop As Expectations of Downton Abbey Season 6 Finale Might Not Be Met

Since the rumor surfaced and then confirmed that Downton Abbey would have its last curtain calling for Season 6, hearts have dropped and the paranoia and depression set in. Just as passionate followers of the hit drama series were coming to a rest more rumors started to surface. Ever since the shooting of the finale of season 6, viewers and loyal supporters have been trying to gain any sort of gossip and information over what should occur in the final series.

Rumors are starting to surface that some of the characters wont necessarily have a nice sending off. Many are saying that Mary might not get the happy ending she so thought. She has played so hard with the two suitors that it might be that both of them just up and leave. The likelihood of that happening is slim but minds must be kept open.

 




 
Additionally, Thomas Burrows name seems to keep resurfacing. We all know his to have come clean over his sexuality and some speculate that he might have a demise. No clues from the actual shoots have arisen yet nor confirmations. We look forward to seeing if the writers give us followers the cravings we need.

In recent news, like many have been speculating over the ending of the show, the cast have been trying to retain keepsakes over props on the set. The producers have made it some sort of agenda to make sure that cast will be unable to obtain or keep these momentos. We wouldn’t be surprised if certain people want to keep them for there extreme price value. In general, there isn’t a good reason for why there has been s restriction placed on these props, but I feel the cast will find a way to sneak out some things.

Taxpayer Money Used On Downton Abbey Congressman For Hot Photographer

The British hit television series Downton Abbey on PBS has been getting a lot of press recently, mainly because there are lots of jibber jabber of Julian Fellowes leaving the show for another. With that already getting fans blood curdling, to amplify the emotional swing, it’s not helping many when a Congressman in the United States, whom a fan of Downton Abbey, is spending taxpayer funded money towards hot photographers.

With all the snuff about high class aristocracy and the promotion of the show itself, this doesn’t really help the show, it only opens a can of worms about high society and there mistreatment of lower income society. Schock is a Congressman from Illinois, and he has a handsome photographer follow him day and night on taxpayer money.



If this isn’t enough for you, he spends $10,000 on Superbowl tickets, partying with Ariana Grande, and staying at lavish hotels that are named dropped from other high class society. Is this a massive issue, not really because it happens all the time in congress. The massive problem is that it happens all the time in Congress… and nothing is done about it. Now it is clinging on to Downton Abbey and bringing it down. Take a look at this ALS challenge by Schock and just remember, this was most likely done using taxpayer money.

 

 

 

Season 7 Might Just Be In The Works For Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey has been a cultural phenomenon in the United States. More importantly, it has become a cultural phenomenon for women in the United States. As long as Kim Kardashians ratings are on the downfall, I am all for it! Recently, it has come to surface that there was a major chance that Downton Abbey would be finished come season 6 next year. While women still are coming to reel from this, there could be some light at the end of the tunnel.
 
There has been lots of speculation of Julian Fellowes leaving to the states to start his new upcoming television series, “The Gilded Age.” That being said, it won’t stop women from following their beloved creator and writer so the show already has high hopes. Additionally, although Julian Fellowes stated in an interview that he would be unable to writer two shows, it hasn’t stopped thoughts of the other writers from adding an addition season.
 




 
Nothing currently has been written in stone yet and Fellowes might come to shock all his viewers with one last season, season 7. With each additional season added year by year, one can infer that Downton Abbey cannot just be dropped with on season remaining. There are too many unresolved situations occurring at Highclere Castle. That being said, more closely than not, there will be at least one final season and that is season 7!

Julian Fellowes Leaves England and Downton Abbey To Work On “The Gilded Age.”

Downton Abbey has been a towering television drama series from the UK. It’s successes come from an excellent writer and actor/actress relationship bringing the most from what has been given. NBC Entertainment President Robert Greenblatt announced at the Television Critics Association press tour that Julian Fellowes would be headed to New York to start writing the new series, “The Gilded Age.” Early when asked about this he stated that he would only start writing “The Gilded Age” only when Downton Abbey was over. When pressed about the issue, Fellowes stated that the show wasn’t going to go on forever.
 
Even though it hasn’t been completely determined that Downton Abbey will end after season 6, everything is pointing to that being the case.



Downton Abbey to Write Possible Last Season 6

Fans of the hit British television show series Downton Abbey will be sorely pissed as it has come to our attention that the new television series, “The Gilded Age,” will be at the forefront of Julian Fellowes mind. Seeing that Julian Fellowes writes every single episode, without him to keep up the series, it looks like season 6 will be the very end of Downton Abbey.
 
Although we have come to respect and admire Downton Abbey, it shouldn’t be a total loss as “The Gilded Age” will follow the typical plot line. The difference between the storyline is that the show will take place in the late nineteenth century that follows the lives of American millionaires. WoooHoooo, another show that admires the rich!
 
Even though this isn’t a 100% guarantee, it seem like this has become a priority for them and moving “The Gilded Age” forward. It has been looming in the dark for the past two years and I feel that Fellowes is ready to move on.
 



Downton Abbey Superfan Getaway Vacation

Hold the presses, hold the presses! If you haven’t heard about Joanne Froggatts award for being best supporting actress, well you just heard it here. Furthermore and in my own respect and importance, Highclere castle is opening its doors and taking reservations for one of two guest cabins. That is right, now you can stay at the luxurious castle where the television series is filmed. The cost for this excursion per night is $550, a small price to pay to be so close to television royalty.
 
If you are unable to fly over the pond for this type of trip, there are other trip you can take. Georgia’s Sea Island is rated the top resort destination in the south where they will be placing on a costume party and proper English dinner. The English dinner will be $250 per head and Laura Carmichael (“Lady Edith”) as well as Kevin Doyle (footman “Joseph Molesley”) and Raquel Cassidy (“Phyllis Baxter,” Lady Grantham’s maid) are expected to be in attendance during the weekend.
 
So if you are looking for some serious Downton Action where the show just isn’t enough, these are two really good offers.



Downton Abbey Season 5 Episode 2 Expectations

There is a change among Downton. Witnesses to the change in times and a dawn of a new age that falls on the region. Some may be more optimistic while others are pessimistic. With the changing times comes changes within Downton. As we do recall, Jimmy was found in bed by Lord Grantham with a guest. Although not proper, how will the two clash this episode?
 
With that being said, we will also confront somewhat Lady Edith and her feelings towards her lover. We know from last episode that Lady Edith found a book that belonged to her lover. Will some speculation come from this?
 
What is occurring within Downton all at once is something very peculiar and odd. It’s quite shocking how everything could come crashing down at once on so many characters. And although there are lots of secrets within the confines, will they ever see the light and if so, what will be done? We look forward to episode 2 and entire season. Below is a 71 seconds episode 2 video clips.



 

Allen Leech’s Way With Accents in ‘Downton Abbey’ Makes Home At The Estate

Allen Leech, who plays the role of chauffeur Tom Branson in the PBS British hit television show series Downton Abbey, has a way with accents. The native Irish born has used a mixture of English, Scottish, and Irish accents to whew his viewers.  Playing a World War II code breaker, Leech uses what is called a ‘scotch lilt’  (The Imitation Game).
 
During some of Leech’s scenes where Tom confronts a nanny who inappropriately disciplines his daughter, he uses his well versed Fellowes impression saying, “I don’t think another death on our hands is what we need.” When asked about his uncanny ability to switch accents, he explained that never would he pull that accent in front of Fellowes unless he got fired.
 




 
Not only is Leech good looking or his character role, but his accent is something that has drawn viewers to the now lead character. One can almost look at Tom Branson’s character as traversing the social hierarchy in front of our eyes, the ugly duckling becoming a beautiful swan. For those reading and hoping that Leech’s character doesn’t run away from his duties, you mustn’t be afraid, Allen Leech is going nowhere, he has become apart of the estate.
 
This being stated, Tom Branson has traveled through many arenas since the passing of his wife. Alone with his child, now a re-ignition of purpose and socio-political fire has come somewhat flooding back into him. Through the help of Sarah Bunting, played by Daisy Lewis, Leech’s character is seriously mulling over his life in America with his daughter. With the family still not quite grabbing at his foot heels to get him back, his character looks forward to where he can find love and needs the acceptance of the family.
