We’ve been waiting soooo very patiently and the time has finally arrived!!! Downton Abbey starts in a few hours.
Follow along as I live tweet (@DowntonDame) all the excitement and zingers. Squeeeeeee!!!! I can hardly wait!!!
What is the world coming to?!?!?! Allen Leech has started a Twitter War with our favorite Downton Abbey dog, Isis!!!
As every Downtonian knows, Allen Leech plays the former chauffeur, now family member and estate manager, Tom Branson, who was widowed last season when the lovely Lady Sybil died just after childbirth. And Isis is the beloved Labrador Retriever that has free run of Downton Abbey as the Crawley family dog.
But what started the feud between Allen and Isis? Isis always seems like such a well-behaved canine as she waggles her backside at us next to Lord Grantham as each week’s show opens. She is devoted to Lord G as she sits with him in his study and we’ve never seen her chew a slipper or tinkle on a chair leg. I am thinking Allen Leech started this rift. But you be the judge for yourself. Here is the tweet that @Allenleech posted recently:
“Now this is a step too far. That is MY top hat… #isis #diva gloves and hats are off!”
I think Allen Leech has set up poor Isis. Tom Branson hates formal wear so why is he now claiming that it is his top hat? How did a dog with no opposable thumbs get a hat on its head? And how in the world is sweet Isis supposed to respond to his Twitter attack if she can’t type on her iPhone? Is this Tom’s revenge for Lord G asking him to walk Isis while the family was in Scotland at the end of last season? Or maybe it is really Lord G’s top hat and Isis is mad at Lord G for calling her lazy?
These are the questions I want answer!!!! I need satisfaction that our beloved Isis will see justice in this maligning of her character. Oh the injustice of it all!!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SPOILER ALERT~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A few lucky Downton Abbey fans were at West Wittering Beach recently and got a fabulous surprise – Downton Abbey was filming a scene there!!! Thankfully for us they took to Twitter to share a few photos. And for that we will be eternally grateful.
Season 4 of Downton is throwing us a lot of curves and it is still being filmed!!! Woohooo!!!!! I can’t wait to actually see it!!!!!
I wonder whose backsides those belong to?
