"A question about getting used to costumes. The women don’t have to wear corsets anymore and the men still wear starched shirts. As a result, things have become more comfortable for the ladies. “There is a ritual. It’s like armor,” Leech says. Leech says that he and Robert James Collier have a regular competition to see who can get into their suits the fastest. Leech says his record is 2:53 (minutes) and he wins because Collier talks too much."

"There are a lot of questions for Anna and Bates still. There’s this thing between them where they both know they’re not quite being honest with each other. In her heart-of-hearts she thinks Bates is innocent, but she has doubts, "this niggle." She sort of can’t leave it alone. I guess it will all unravel."

Ask Ausiello Spoilers 7/22/14

angel-princess-anna:

Question: I’m still not over the death of Downton Abbey‘s Matthew. Please tell me we won’t be losing anyone else in Season 5! —Kate

Ausiello: You might want to sit down for this one, Kate. “No one’s safe,” executive producer Gareth Neame tells TVLine — rather bluntly — about the PBS drama’s fifth season, which premieres Stateside on Jan. 4. “We’ve lost so many key characters already. Although the show’s only been on for four years, we’ve actually covered 10 to 12 years, so it’s reasonable that within any family, there’d be deaths in that timeframe.” (In other words, have your funeral attire ready, just in case.)

"I don’t know what Julian [Fellowes] would answer to that, but I think it has more to do with the chemistry we saw between Jim Carter and Phyllis Logan. I saw them as sort of a husband and wife very early on. Downton is about romantic love and companionship, and in that sense, they are one of the Downton relationships, even if they’re not married."

ITV drama Downton Abbey came to St Mary’s Church yesterday.

Cast and crew of the international hit series were in the churchyard to shoot scenes between 8am and 10am.

The Rev Jan Fielden said the crew had been filming a scene for the Christmas special, featuring butler Charles Carson (Jim Carter) and housekeeper Elsie Hughes (Phyllis Logan). She said: “We met the actors. They were lovely.”

Since it is TCA week I thought I would make a post letting you know that you can follow me on twitter here. They usually don’t have a live stream or videos during the actual Downton TCA event so there is a lot of retweeting of the various critics twitter accounts that happens over there and not all of it ends up here on tumblr so yeah, follow if you want!
