I recently watched the iTV series, Downton Abbey on my local public television station. I have to say, it is one of the best period dramas I have seen since last year's broadcast of Emma starring Romola Garai and Jonny Lee Miller. Back to Downton.

They allowed volunteer tributes in The Hunger Games. Why not Downton Abbey? @Downton…

In series 2, Mr Bates was wrongly accused of the murder of his first wife, Vera. Despite his innocence he was sentenced to death. The sentence was later commuted to life imprisonment. His wife, and Downton Abbey's head maid, Anna is now on a mission to prove his innocence. Will you join her cause and support the campaign to free Bates? Pin your letters of encouragement and pictures of your campaign efforts, tagging @Downton Abbey, and the best will be re-pinned on to this board.
