      This would appear to be the new footman Jimmy:

      @Olive Austin: @Olive Austin: Good grief, is that the actor from that terrible movie version of ‘Eragon’?

      @tim b: Yes. “Ed Speleers will play Jimmy starting with Season 3’s first episode. Ed is British born and bred, so the accent shouldn’t be a problem for him. The 24-year-old is best known for his role in Eragon, but we’re excited to see if he’s more like nice guy William or scheming Thomas in his new DA role.”

      The cast of Downton Abbey are dishing….

      No, no, no The cast of Dowton Abbey IS dishing.

      Cast is a collective, which in American English is singular, not plural. It may be a British program, but this is not a British blog.

      @NCMan: Oh dear. Here I thought the internet was nation free. I am English born with an English parent, but grew up in America with American grandparents. I was always taught at home that just because Americans cannot spell and have improper grammar, I would do neither. The centre of the universe is not America. A programme from England has a cast that are dishing. Collectives are intrinsically plural is how my mum taught me. After chats with my ninth grade English teacher, I was allowed to continue spelling in the English manner and did not lose points for using plural forms of verbs with collective nouns. Certainly, some misspellings slipped through as did occasional grammatical errors. I have a lifelong commitment to do my bit to bring America back into the fold of standard English used in all other English speaking countries. Mr. Webster should be ashamed of himself for perverting a language just because he didn’t like England so soon after the Revolutionary War.

      “…and Edith is still the Meg Griffin of the Crawley household.”

      Prefect for a post about Downton Abby, very droll, indeed.

      @Rob Moore: Now, please, no overly scolding us poor Americans, English hasn’t been spoken here in years! After all, even Queerty got that piece of grammar correct, and that is saying something!
