For many people, once they pass a certain age, they stop. In “Downton Abbey,” the characters who show this sassy, careless affection the most are the well-dressed liberals Lady Violet Crawley (Maggie Smith) and Lady Isobel Merton (Penelope Wilton). Both are women of status and privilege. Both are stubborn and determined to get their way. When they clash, the witty banter is as clever as the scolding. At the end of the day, both women seem to have equal contempt and respect for each other because, in many ways, they are so similar.
Recently, fans on Reddit was reminiscing about the show and starting to discuss what it would be like to team up with these two powerful female leads. Many fans agreed that a prequel starring both women in their younger years would be an enjoyable movie, with fans enjoying u / Kannu2 eager to “see a sassy young Violet.” While, u / redr2290 had another hint for the Violet x Merton spin-off: “I want a show with them to solve mysteries.”
Some fans thought of a completely different medium for the proposed sub, with u / Infamous_Fault8353 emphasized that “they need a podcast.” But is that podcast Ladies Violet and Merton on a vintage outfit taping in a modern studio? Or the two of them in a posh 1920s living room with phonographs? Sadly, the world may never know. But it’s nice to think about it.
