I just spent the last week watching seasons 1 and 2. The characters are quite interesting, all of them. I know the show wanted me to hate O'Brien and Thomas but I actually ended up not liking Lady Grantham herself. Daisy's constant "I didn't really like William that way" grew tiresome as well. But overall all the character arcs were good. Matthew of course being my favorite.

I just rewatched the first two series last week and here's what I want to know:

Is Downtown Abbey a sort of reverse TARDIS? Because the house is huge on the outside, but only seems to have a small number of rooms inside.

On the main floor, there's an entrance hall, dining room, library and "small library" (which is really just the end of the main library). When it's turned into a hospital, the characters biatch that there's no room for them, end up making a sitting room out of the small library using screens and even talk about sleeping in their dressing room (as they're being forced out of the main bedroom). Yet, based on the outside of the house, it's got to be 30,000-50,000 s ft, easily, just for the main living space.


/yes, this is really annoying me
