*** While still having to become a citizen, another country he could have gone to (and mentioned, along with Greece) was Portugal, which also allowed divorce for mental illness. Given that the reason which made Edith weary of going was that the Germans were Europe's most hated country, why didn't any one of them remember [[BindingAncientTreaty the Treaty of Windsor]]?

** Later, Robert exiles himself there after getting annoyed with Cora getting to close to another man. Cora finally gives him an ultimatum, telling him that, if he had never found himself in a similar situation, he should stay in that room; otherwise, he should return to their bedroom. After recalling his situation with Jane, Robert quietly follows Cora to their room.

[[SpiritualSuccessor Much like]] the earlier series ''[[UpstairsDownstairs Upstairs, Downstairs]]'', the drama follows both the aristocratic family who own the house and the large staff of servants who make it tick. The second series dealt with the effects of UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne on the entire household.

* JerkHasAPoint:
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While Branson's political views are usually portrayed as a case of KnowNothingKnowItAll, he does have moments of this. Notably, when he compares Ireland being ruled by the English King to England being ruled by the Kaiser.
** The Dowager Countess fits this trope; underneath the cold exterior she ''does'' care, and is utterly shattered when [[spoiler: Sybil dies]]; she ends up hobbling across the hall, adjusting her veil and looking, for the first time in the series like a devastated old woman who [[spoiler: has just lost her granddaughter]]. It's a sad sight, to see someone so powerful in tears! That's how bad things are -- and you know things are bad when even the Dowager Countess is crying.
