Mr. Carson

Mr. Carson

Butler

Mr. Carson is pleased that Downton Abbey is properly staffed according to pre-war standards, shoring up the great house's foundation against the tide of progress. His dual beacons, tradition and protocol, guide his gruff and immoveable leadership. But time marches on in spite of his will, revealing old wounds and new opportunities to heal in its wake. If he is prepared take a difficult and courageous stand, one with Mrs. Hughes and another with Lady Mary, he may violate protocol, but reveal greater depths of loyalty and love.
