Mr. Carson, The Butler

"Keeping up standards is the only way to show the Germans that they will not beat us in the end." –Carson

Carson has worked at Downton Abbey since he was a young boy. Now the butler of a great estate diminished in staff and resources during wartime, he is nevertheless determined to keep up his rigorous standards. He is endlessly nostalgic for the old order, traditional to a fault, and loyal and devoted to both the family and its way of life. For Lady Mary, whom he genuinely loves as a surrogate daughter, he would do almost anything. With the arrival of Mary's new suitor, Sir Richard Carlisle, he may have to.
