Thanks. I might watch in the end ... just in case ... It was such a beautiful series, so well put together, so profound. I was so happy that Edith in the end outranked Mary.  Now it is hard for them to tell the story because basically everyone is grown up.

Me too Cyril!!!  Her storyline was my favorite and I'm eager to see what they do with her in this next version.

I agree, too, Cyril and Cordelia - long-suffering from Maryís sharp tongue, losing a love and having to hide her baby.  Nice to see things left so happily for her and canít wait to see what happens next with Mary, Edith and the whole family and staff.  Glad filming is happening, just going to be VERY hard to wait for the new movie to come out!! 😋

Please no: Edith's "woe is me" routine was enough for one movie. Edith finally outranked Mary when it no longer mattered as much to Mary. Even in Edith' triumph over her taunting adversary, it was not much of a victory: her adversary had moved on.

Word Chandra, word!

I never liked Edith, her perpetual victimhood hid an underlying callousness as evidenced by her homewrecking with the farmer at the farm she volunteered at and how she badly used the pig manager and his wife until it became convenient for her wants despite her daughter having a loving home.

Never liked Edith.  Many other characters had issues but Edith bothered me the most.  Followed by Mrs Crawley oddly enough.

I like the fact that Edith's grandmother came out of her church pew and declared to Edith not to go after Sir Anthony.

I like Edith; sheís a flawed character. I find perfect characters to be boring.

I felt sorry for Edith ... being the "ugly duckling sister" surely was no fun, all the pressure to get married well - with a sister that just turned down one suitor after the other. She had some weird moments, but I think she was rather desperate and humble when it came to choosing partners. She would have married anyone who was suitable and interested in her.

She had a period when you wanted to slap her, when she was moving that poor girl around and around and obviously what happened to Mrs. Dewe (?) was awful.

Ditto! Poor Mrs Drewe! Edith has poor self-esteem, not humility. Mary's character is complex and vital while Edith's is messy and soporific.  I'd rather Anna be the focus of the next film than Edith. Why oh why were there so many scenes of  Edith in her undergarments in the last movie?  Crazy
