Downton Abbey Quiz#3

Hungering for another quiz? Here's today's installment

1. What is the Dowager Countess of Grantham's given name

2. More aristocrats than working class soldiers died in World War I.
One in four aristocrats died—a far higher proportion than any other group. (Across the rest of the British forces the ratio was one in eight.)

3. Which two Downton stalwarts were recently nominated by the Screen Actors Guild for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series?
Michelle Dockery and Dame Maggie Smith
Siobhan Finneran and Elizabeth McGovern
Phyllis Logan and Penelope Wilton
Michelle Dockery ("Lady Mary Crawley") and Dame Maggie Smith ("Dowager Countess of Grantham"). Too bad for the downstairs staff! Ironically, Dockery has mused that in real life her working-class background would have placed her in the shoes of her housemaid Anna rather than in those of the aristocrat she portrays in the series.)

4. Carson the butler's past includes a stint with what group?
the Grenadier Guards
Scotland Yard
the Savoy's wait staff
a music hall group called "The Cheerful Charlies"
And he's none too keen to have it bruited about!

5. Which of the following is not true about series creator Julian Fellowes?
In the 1970s, wrote romantic novels under the pseudonym Rebecca Greville.
One of his ancestors served with Lord Nelson.
He has twice been nominated for an Academy Award
His wife is lady-in-waiting to Princess Michael of Kent
Only one nomination (a win for best original screenplay for Gosford Park in 2002)
