OK, I promise I won’t blog again about “Downton Abbey” for a while, but I couldn’t resist this: Last night I read a fine profile of Julian Fellowes in the New York Times Sunday magazine that not only presented Fellowes as a true inspiration for late bloomers (“Gosford Park” was his first produced screenplay; he was 52) but also provided plenty of dish about the show he created. Which led me to this clip; a spoof of “Downton Abbey” (yes, that’s Kim Cattrall, channelling Elizabeth McGovern) made for BBC Comic Relief. It’s a kick. I’d say more, but the music’s starting.
