We began our day at a central London hotel which gives us easy access to the the road heading North West from London towards our first stop. Heading out on a Saturday morning before the traffic has begun to build we are soon onto the main road to Oxford. Series Five of Downton Abbey had just finished running in America and so the drive through the Chilterns gave us ample opportunity to speculate on what Series 6 had to offer. 1925, let’s think…. The Great Depression, will this mean Downton will need to be sold or, even forbid, will Robert’s ulcer have been misdiagnosed? Carson’s wedding, will that be the finale? Will Lady Mary finally marry again? Will Downton be affected by the rise in Fascism? and as for that last episode, there were no real cliffhangers, was everything being laid out for Series 6? We shall just have to wait and see.
