I finally finished the first season of Downton Abbey and I’ve discovered that I really can’t help shipping people. So I’m just going to come out and say it, I totally ship Isobel Crawley and Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham.
I love that they’re constantly trying to annoy each other in small ways. The Dowager Countess’ dry wit and Isobel’s smart way of thinking. They fight like an old married couple. If this show was set about a hundred years later, maybe they would have been.
