Dear Julian Fellowes,


To:  Julian Fellowes
At: Canarven Castle
RE:  Angry viewers


Dear Mr. Fellowes,

Sir, I must protest!  How dare you! 

The last episode of “Downton Abbey”, Season three, was absolutely unacceptable.  

While I appreciate the little happy bits you allowed viewers throughout the two hour showing, the last five minutes were NOT tolerable.  You toss the viewers little crumbs of joy only to sweep them all away in the final minutes of the show.

Dammit, man, we below-stairs viewers deserve more than this!

Do you not think something less catastrophic would have met the criteria of “cliff-hanger”? 

I impatiently await your reply and explanation.

Sincerely, etc. etc.
Your devoted follower,
Susan Kane

  1. You tell them Sue! Totally agree, what a bummer. Who will be the next to go - the Dowager? I don't think I could handle that.

    Now on to Call the Midwife.

    1. If they take our Maggie Smith, there would be a riot.

  3. True confession--I was addicted to upstairs/downstairs and never got over Richard Bellamy ending the series with suicide. I tried the first couple of episodes of downtown abbey and couldn't get involved. Hope your series turns out better than mine.

    1. We never got hooked on upstairs/downstairs; our children were young then, and we needed comedy.

  4. I've never watched it.....there is usually something involving two or more sweaty men and a moving object on the tv so I go play in my office.

    1. You don't like sweaty men and earth-moving machinery? Give Downton a chance!

  5. I knew the actor wanted to leave the show, but I still was not prepared for that kind of departure. I'm a little tired of Mary and wish I could have Sybil back.

    1. Same here. The actor had some Broadway offers, so I don't blame him.

    1. I guess outrage is pretty widespread.

  7. I must be the only woman on the planet who's never watch the show. I think I'm afraid my addictive personality will find one more thing to get addicted to.

    BTW, your Wordless Wednesday link isn't showing up when I click on it from my feed.

    1. Try to see even one episode and you will be addicted immediately.

      Not sure what I did wrong on the WWlink...

  8. This is a new one on me, but TV has become like a vast unexplored continent to me anymore. It was easier when there were only three channels to keep track of.

    1. I know...we had two stations available in our rural area. Sometimes we could even received them.

  9. So have you heard back from Julian yet? Probably skulking behind Mrs Pattymore's apron downstairs in the kitchen, afraid to face the wrath of all us DA addicts.

    It was indeed a dastardly end to a (very short!)Season.

    1. If Mr. Fellowes DARES to touch Dame Maggie Smith, there will be hell to pay, for sure. That would be going too far.

  10. I also have not recovered from this loss. There were two big deaths this season, and I'm still upset about both of them. Now we have to wait a full year to find out what happens. Thanks for writing this letter Susan.
