A very special NBC-PBS crossover episode!
Lord Grantham, in a frenzied hissy-fit of feeling unappreciated — after all he’s done for every damn serf and relation alike — not to mention that little troll on the memorial committee, has decided to erect a cross on the cricket pitch, climb up and nail himself to it.
The cross has been fashioned from the frame of the “Dunk The Communist Pamphleteer” booth from last Spring’s fete. Naturally he won’t be doing his own nailing. He insisted he wanted to go all by himself — “Really, Mrs Hughes, I’m quite capable of performing my own martyring!”
Nevertheless, Mr Molesly follows discreetly behind, with grouper-paste sandwiches and “the crucifix things” on a silver tray.
