A bit heavy handed with the blood!

    You wouldn't have thought there was that much blood in Lord Grantham's entire body. Talk about theatrical.

    Thank God I'm doing my embroidery instead. With occasional eye-adjustment breaks on here.

    I do my crochet and watch at the same time.

    "Oooh nooooo!" (said in a wossername from The Archers accent.)

    We're watching Downton on a one hour delay. I don't think I fancy lots of blood. I think I'll go to bed now. To be honest, I lost real interest in the show early on in series three. The World War One stuff was a bit silly.

    The whole thing's a bit daft really and the script writing is lazy but the frocks are nice.
    I'm seeing out til the bitter end just, well, just because.

    Ooh. For some reason that made me think of Posh Frocks And New Trousers. I loved that show.

    I must say that the family are reacting very well. I suspect that I'd be concerned about the stains on the carpet.

    Did Carson just say that they performed a grasceptomy on Lord Grantham? Surely that can't be a real word? (Or possibly the second glass of red is starting to kick in...)

    I was wondering earlier on how they'd get the table linen clean

    Blood...blood...soak in cold water, I think. (Not that I'm generally bothered by stains in stuff...)

    I think he said a 'gastrectomy'. But at the end you saw Lord G in next week's episode sitting up in bed looking very fit and cosy and not at all how you'd imagine someone minus a stomach. But the past is a different country. They did things differently there.

    Hmm, that probably makes more sense.

    Never mind the blood stains, think about the numerous breaches of etiquette he committed by doing that at dinner!

    If you Google "Lord Grantham gastrectomy", this is one of the images that comes up.

    I wondered last week over Anna's gynaecological problem...... I really wondered whether that stick procedure (which I too had to have in the 1980s) was actually an established/recognised procedure..... I wouldn't have thought so really..... anyone know?

    NHS Choices says there are 4 types of gastrectomy: total, partial, sleeve or oesophagastrectomy. But probably in those days they just whipped the whole thing out.
