Mr. Carson

Mr. Carson

The Butler

Mr. Carson, always a zealot for standards and style, believes that, post-war, the time is right to return Downton Abbey to its proper status. The estate's financial troubles may prevent him from bringing staff numbers up to snuff, but he expects the staff conduct to conform to his will. An immoveable standard bearer, Carson may butt heads with his cohort Mrs. Hughes, but he extends great loyalty to her, as he does to the dowager countess, Violet, and always, to Lady Mary.
