SPOILER: 10 Best Moments Of Downton Abbey Season 5, Episode 2: It Just Got Interesting...


Barrow’s a bitch

Come on Tom, was telling everyone about Baxter really necessary?! Poor Mr Moseley. Just when you get used to him looking somewhat happy, he gets shot down to looking his usual slightly bewildered and vaguely unhappy self again. This is why you have no friends so you can stop miserably smoking by the fireplace feeling all lonely already.

A man comes to see a painting

In an interesting plot twist for Downton Abbey, a posh man visits to view a painting. But since he looks creepy and seems to be hitting on Cora, we wonder if there could be more to this oh-so-interesting plot line. Could an affair be on the cards for Downton’s most nasal resident?

Bye bye Jimmy

Jimmy leaves and no one especially cares that much, except Thomas of course. Although Thomas is a bitter fellow, maybe all he needs is someone to love. Is he ever going to find a sexy yet caring partner who doesn’t try to have him arrested when he goes in for a kiss? We hope so!

Lady Edith becomes Marigold’s Godmother

Lady Edith managed to keep her out-of-wedlock child a secret, and yet goes to see her everyday, tells everyone she’s paying for her education and is determined to help raise her. So why does NO ONE bat an eyelid? Except the dashing fireman’s wife of course, who we get the feeling will not be accommodating to Marigold’s birth mother.

Anna shopping for condoms

In what was definitely the funniest part of the episode, a horny Mary sends poor Anna to risk her dignity by ordering what we can only assume is an old fashioned condom for Lady Mary’s planned weekend exploits. Anna hiding from other customers to get her gear was just brilliant.

King on the wireless

“Why’s it called a wireless when there’s so many wires?” Kitchen assistant Daisy: asking the big questions. Upstairs and downstairs gathered to listen to the radio, and there was some fun ‘it’s just a phase’ talk that we could all smugly giggle at. Oh you 1920s kids!

Benedict Cumberbatch on his Oscars U2 photobomb: ‘I was drinking – it was Ellen DeGeneres’ fault!

Benedict Cumberbatch on his Oscars U2 photobomb: ‘I was drinking – it was Ellen DeGeneres’ fault!

Remember when Benedict Cumberbatch photobombed U2 on the red carpet at this year’s Oscars? And it was the best thing that had happened in the history of red carpet events? And then someone set it to the Jaws theme and it was EVEN BETTER?

Yeah, apparently the most important moment in Oscars history was all down to Ellen DeGeneres and her bottomless stash of miniature booze, as Benedict told Time Out this week.

“Yes, I photobombed U2! But that was all Ellen DeGeneres’s fault because she plied everyone with vodka on the red carpet,” he cheekboned.

“Her team was handing out these miniatures. A friend really wanted me to get a photo with U2. So I just saw the opportunity and I’ve never felt an impulse like it.

“I spotted them all standing around and I thought, ‘Perfect!’ It wasn’t preordained or anything. I just did it.”

Charlie Hunnam channels his Sons Of Anarchy character Jax Teller as he takes motorbike out for a spin

PUBLISHED: 09:26 EST, 29 September 2014 | UPDATED: 11:32 EST, 29 September 2014

Anarchy: Charlie as Jax Teller in the TV show 

He has played rebel motorcycle gang leader Jax Teller on TV hit Sons Of Anarchy for six years.

And it's clear that his character's hobbies have rubbed off on Charlie Hunnam.

The 34-year-old British-born actor spent Sunday hanging out with his biker buddies in West Hollywood.

'The first season for me was a total write-off in terms of acting because I was completely consumed with trying to do the accent, which I'd never done before,' he told The Hollywood Reporter.

 'It really contained me and controlled me so that I wasn't free to make the moves I wanted to make as an actor. By midway through season two, I think I got that under control.' Starring in the acclaimed drama also propelled Hollywood producers to take notice - Charlie appeared in Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim last year, and teams up with the director again in horror flick Crimson Peak, to be released next month.

 'I think I'm a much better actor than I was at the beginning of the show,' he said 'It was like going to an Ivy League school with [Showrunner] Kurt Sutter being the mad professor that pushes us all to do our best work.

Spoilers: Downton Abbey actor Brendan Coyle says his 'jaw dropped' when he learned of his character’s fate

Sep 28, 2014 22:00 By Mark Jefferies

Downton Abbey actor Brendan Coyle says the scripts for the new series “dropped his jaw” as he learned of his character’s fate.

Brendan plays Mr Bates, who is suspected of killing the man who raped his wife Anna – fellow valet Mr Green.

It seemed Bates had got away with it, but at the end of the latest episode on ITV viewers learned a new witness to the death had come forward.

The rape has also put a strain in the relationship between Bates and Anna, played by Joanne Froggatt.

Brendan called the upcoming storyline, penned by show creator Julian Fellowes, “a surprise”.

He added: “Julian never fails to drop your jaw.

“We couldn’t begin the series with that storyline. We had to have some abatement from that.

"And there’s a sense of them trying to heal. But it’s very difficult.

Brendan insisted Downton’s downstairs cast are more wild than those who play the posh roles upstairs.

“It’s a great bunch,” he said.

“We’re a bunch of old hams sitting around gossiping and talking food.

“Downstairs we can be quite rowdy. There’s a lot of comedians. We laugh a lot doing those scenes when we’re all sitting around talking about picnics or whatever.

"I believe we are more raucous than upstairs.
