Well - I was dragged in to VUE Cinema to see this today. It began well - in fact the first half an hour was quite good. Then it went straight down silly street and became a cliche ridden load of drivel. Julian Fellowes must have lost his marbles somewhere if he thinks for one minute that any of it was remotely believable. A butler back answering an Earl in a way that would/should have had him instantly dismissed. Mr Mosley daring to speak in a disrespectful way to the King. These were servants who had been the household of an Earl for years and should therefore have known how to behave. Queen Mary's dressmaker - a thief? A caricature of a french chef?
A scene between Dowager Countess Grantham and Lady Mary Crawley/Talbot that was supposed to be poignant was so badly scripted that I just fell about laughing!
A waste of money and, more importantly, two hours of my time.
