Downton Abbey - what next?

ITV have announced that Downton Abbey is to end later this year after 6 series following the lives of the inhabitants of the titular abbey, both upstairs and downstairs.

Whilst of course it is sad that the series has come to an end, apparently it is going to live on in a slightly different form.

Following the departure of Jeremy Clarkson, the BBC have announced that Carson, Downton's faithful butler is to join the Top Gear team.

BBC spokesperson April Foel said "We are delighted that Jim Carter has agreed to be the new presenter of Top Gear, in character as Carson.  He will bring a touch of culture to the programme, as well as a certain "olde worlde" charm".

Can't wait.....


  1. I was just about to say, "Whaat???" Until I remembered the date....x

  2. I would have expected Branson, as former chauffeur to get the role - but maybe he is busy solving anagrams elsewhere!
