What you don't see is the Police Call Box in the other corner of the room.

I'm sure that will 'shop right out.

Transparent bakelite.

The bottle really makes them look like twits who decided to dress up for a costume party.

Outlander crossover?

This is in no way a subtle promotion for the new season of Downton Abbey.

The servants didn't remove that? Off with their heads!

I'm not caught up and there's some big spoilers in the article. Darn.

Sack those who are responsible without references and let them starve!

Someone ignored the "Hot Set" signs.

Gaffe or PR stunt?  I'm sure their faces are red... red like a fox!

/Not sure that worked...

There are only two things that I want to see next season, and that's for both Thomas and Lady Edith to find some modicum happiness for once. This being Downton, that's not gonna happen.

Can say it is clear bakelite. It was the precursor to modern plastics.

No, no it won't.  Life just shiats on some people.  Then they snap.
Lady Edith got an axe
She gave her sister 30 whacks...

So the bottle does add some integrity to the show?

Harvey Manfrenjensenjen: This is in no way a subtle promotion for the new season of Downton Abbey.


The print version of the Daily Mail can become the Daily Downton, and the web version is worse. Seriously, any thing they can print that is remotely linked to it, they will. Like this story. Or Downtown actress wears a dress from July 23rd and July 24th.

Putting "downton" in the search bar brings up 1100 hits, okay some of those completely unrelated, but assuming very kind estimate of a 50% hit rate, that's still over 500 acticles, for a 5 year old programme, so 100 a year.

I think the root of it is that the Mail hates the BBC, and Downton is a successful programme which isn't made by, or shown on, the BBC. They're holding it up as a beacon of "this is the greatest TV programme ever, and we could have more like it if we got rid of the BBC".

I'm just waiting for Edith to snap and slaughter every member of her family with a gleeful grin on her face, and then head downstairs, running into Thomas on his way up, covered in blood leftover from butchering the staff.  They both pause, look into each other's eyes, and are giggling madly when the police show up.  That would be the perfect ending to that show.

Meh. They'll fix it in post.

Ask John Rentoul.....he has a blog in England called "Questions To Which the Answer is No".
(You can probably guess what his answer will be.)
