Eric Idle Blasts Downton Abbey


Eric Idle Hugh Bonneville Maggie Smith

Idle, 72, is disturbed by fans love of shows such as the period drama and slammed the show and it's ilk for it's portrayal of "upper class twits" and "sexually available domestic servants".

"I love and adore the English. Well, not all of them. I hate the smugly sentimental upstairs/downstairs world of the upper-classes and their nostalgia for country estates and servants," he told British newspaper The Daily Mail.

"You know, those TV series about fat-faced, smug, f**king upper-class twits where happy and kindly aristocrats are lovingly and gratifyingly served by contented, sexually available domestic servants."

Hugh Bonneville Michelle Dockery Lily James

It's been just over two months since 'Downton Abbey' ended for UK viewers, while the US still has the sixth and final series to complete.

Hugh Bonneville is of the former category, and he's looking pretty busy this year what with the new 'Hollow Crown' series coming up in which he stars as the Duke of Gloucester.

Bloody 'Downton Abbey' Scene Leaves Viewers Stunned


Hugh Bonneville

There was absolutely no contest on Monday as to what the previous night’s ‘watercooler moment’ on TV had been, as the shocking end of the most recent episode of ‘Downton Abbey’ took most of us by surprise.

The normally genteel ITV programme, currently in the middle of its sixth and final season, temporarily turned into something resembling a scene from Alien as Lord Grantham’s stomach complaint, a plotline bubbling under the four episodes in the series thus far, erupted – quite literally – as his ulcer burst, causing him to projectile vomit blood over the dinner table and his dining companions.

Looking increasingly pale as the hour-long episode went on, Lord Grantham (played by Hugh Bonneville) stood up in the middle of dinner to interrupt an argument about a local hospital to declare he was feeling unwell, when the bloody scene unfolded.

Many viewers of the hit period drama were left feeling squeamish during the broadcast of a new episode in the U.K. on Sunday (18Oct15) when Hugh Bonneville's character projectile-vomited blood during a dinner party.

Several fans have already complained to U.K. TV watchdog the Office of Communications (Ofcom) about the graphic moment, and many more took to social media after the screening to compare it to a gory horror movie.

Now Fox, who plays a footman called Andy in the show, has revealed only the main actors involved in the scene knew what was about to happen, and he was taken by surprise and almost fainted when he saw the fake blood.
