I cannot take credit for finding these. A fellow denizen of the Republic of Pemberley called my attention to them. I have two words: Bloody. Brilliant.
Something else that is brilliant is Vulture’s episode-by-episode synopsis of the series. Check it out — it’s not quite as funny as the one from the Telegraph, but it’s still highly entertaining. Here is their take on the Christmas special. I only need to add one thing — the author of DA is not “Sir Fellowes,” he’s “LORD Fellowes.” One never uses “Sir” with a surname. NEVER. These people need to be added to the ever-growing list of writers who desperately need to check out Debrett’s. The information is out there — USE IT.
But I digress. Anyone in North America who has wanted to watch DA has now seen it in its entirety. Even I, who have problems with the way PBS treats the material, could not resist watching it last night (despite the fact that I own the Region 2 DVDs), and Matthew’s proposal was as beautiful as I’d remembered. *sigh*
