There seems to be a general feeling at large that the second series was poorly composed. I'm still wondering about the disfigured Canadian officer, who came, made his case to be the rightful heir and then conveniently disappeared.
(Thought: perhaps the family conspired to dispose of him? Will all be revealed in the next series? Did they get Bates to do it, as he's already in the frame for knocking off his missus? Or was it the butler?)

It's back - "Downton Abbey", that is. And some time after we all thought we had more than adequately discussed its Great War content , I'm just going to comment mildly that it's taken the the good villagers of Downton a long time to consider having a war memorial - six years to be exact, as the new series is set in 1924.
My own impression is that most communities started thinking about memorials fairly soon after the cessation of hostilities, and the postcards I've seen of memorials being unveiled in Wiltshire suggests that a fair number were built by 1921.
(For those who have not indulged in the latest series, a small delegation of villagers visited Downton Abbey to ask Lord Grantham for some land on which to erect a memorial. His Lordship is a bit miffed when they ask not him, but his butler, Carson, to chair the committee overseeing the project.)
