Definitely not up to the standard of the previous seasons! Felt like Julian Fellowes had run out of fresh ideas!
At 81, have long enjoyed those classical stories, but find it hard to believe that the two baby sons of characters in P& P having married women 19-22 yrs older as told by the writer! That's stretching it a bit!
As to DA, we all needed some time to mourn Matthew, so the somewhat low-keyed ending to this seasons show, I believe only is preparing us for bigger things. Being a teenager during WWII, I can tell you that attacks were going on in Germany against anyone who made remarks against Hitler so Edith's love easily could have/was detained by the goons then operating in Germany and no word would come out on his/anyone's whereabouts. I am appreciating the story line as there must be better events coming in the new season.
