“I am not a victim”: How I found my Kindred Spirit on Downton Abbey


Elle Beaver

I am a Downton Abby fan; I have loved watching it since it first started airing on PBS. It has everything I need for entertainment: History, beautiful sets and costumes, interesting characters, and Tom Branson (Allen Leech) – the most gorgeous blonde haired, blue eyed, Irish bloke to grace the small screen since… ever, be still my heart. It also plays out like a soap opera with death, love, and lies and I am often emotionally invested in the characters – I was quite inconsolable for a week after Lady Sibyl died… why would you kill her Julian Fellowes?! WHY!?! Despite my deep fondness for Sybil and Tom, as well as my love of the caustically witty dowager countess played by Maggie Smith, season four of the show has proven that my kindred spirit at Downton is none other than Anna Bates.
