Listen, I like Branson a lot (and am putting him first for a change just so the Downton men get a little love). But he ┬áneeds to stop repeating the same dalliances with interchangeable, snooty-about-his-new-status lasses — and perhaps start getting into it illicitly with people I actually LIKE, and/or Mary. But at least he has more charisma than poor Tony Gillingham. Which I keep saying, in my head, as “Terry Gilliam,” which… THAT would be an unexpected turn.
