One, the start of a multi-segment Great Expectations! No, not the Tim Burton one that is in production in the States, but a mini-series ... more than a 2-hour feature. Oh, how delightful. The young man who plays Pip is handsome and broody if I remember him correctly from a magazine photo.
Two, the first installment of Downton Abbey Season 2 was shown. No need to comment on the fabulousness of that now!
And la piece de la resistance?! ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS 20th anniversary special. Oh how I would have loved to have seen it ... and, oh how they'll make me wait to see it on this side of the pond. What could those girls be up to? I'm dying to find out.

So the bigger theme is: can one get out of what one's role is? Can someone who has always been one thing, change into another ... in the eyes of others. For Edina ... no. I am more hopeful for those around me. Of course the bit about the race horse and the donkey? That's spot on.
