Downton Abbey Look Alikes!

My Ford has a bumper sticker on the back that reads: My other car is parked at Downton Abbey. This should give you some idea of how much I LOVE this show!  Following each episode, I go straight to my two favorite Downton Abbey bloggers:  Michael Hogan on and June Thomas & Seth Stevenson on  Every week, I laugh myself silly reading their recaps, then forward their blogs to all my DA-loving friends.

I have to say, despite the abundance of witty analysis available on Downton Abbey, none of the blogs I’ve read has ever mentioned the Look-Alike factor.  Maybe I’m imagining things, but I think we’ve got some serious twin action going on at big house, or at least some eerie similarities. Check it out!

                                         "Jimmy"                              Simon Baker

                                    "Matthew"                                      "Ralphie"

                                           "Branson"                            Emilio Estevez

                                      "Lady Edith"                          George Washington

                                             "Daisy"                                Sasha Cohen

                                      "Vera Bates"                           Mary McDonnell

                                  "Dr. Clarkson"                                Tom Skerritt

                              "Lord Grantham"                               Angry Bird

                             "Mary! Mary! Mary!"                  "Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!"

See? Told you so. There isn't much twin action going on in the Priscilla Willa chapter books I write for eight to ten year olds, but check them out anyway!  I'm off to polish the silver and make a kidney pie. TaTa for now!






  1. You completely crack me up! I have NEVER watched this show, but, your look alike analysis is none the less HILARIOUS!

  2. If you have Netflix, you can catch all of Season One. Warning: it is super addictive!!!!
