The best quotes from Downton Abbey series 6 episode 2

From pigs and pig men to emotional woes and wedding planning, the Dowager Countess, Lady Mary and co had some cracking lines in tonight's episode of Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey really got into its stride this week as our Sunday night staple. There were tense exchanges over wedding venues, emotional worries for Lady Edith as the Drewes came back on the scene, good news for Anna and more clashes over the village hospital. Daisy tried to make amends and Thomas looked for pastures new. And Downton’s prize porkers made an appearance again… 


A local farmer arrived at the Abbey to enquire about their entrants for the Fat Stock Show… 

While Bates attempted to comfort Anna, who was still struggling without a child of her own. 

Cora was sticking up for herself 

While Robert wasn’t even bothering to try

In fact, he was getting attacks from all fronts. Poor chap… 

Sexy stuff sorted, Mrs Hughes and Carson clashed over reception venues 

Lady Mary opposed a new nickname 

Lady Edith faced yet more heartache 

And Anna shared some wise words

Oh and the pigs. They made another couple of appearances before the episode was out.
