Am I the only person in the world who didn't know until tonight what happened at the end of the third series of Downton Abbey aired in the 2012 Christmas Day Special when I was in New Zealand? Because I hadn't seen the full second series I decided that I wouldn't seek any information so that I could watch everything at my leisure back here in the UK. Until tonight that is when after the 6 O'clock News, Dan Stevens, was on The One Show. He played Mathew Crawley in Downton although his real name meant absolutely nothing to me. The Show started off with the clip from the Christmas Show giving the whole game away. Despite the fact that many (including Frances Garrood) have nothing but robust contempt for Downton it is one of the most widely watched television programmes in the world!
Although it has nothing at all to do with this post I thought that you might like to see a young Sparrow which posed this evening on a branch I have set up near the bird table so that I can get better photos of the birds that inhabit it. She hasn't yet learned how to be elegant! Apart from that I'm not quite sure how she managed to land like that.
