Molly Smurf

READ: BBC’s Our Girl returning for second series? Lacey Turner could be back!

Over the last two weeks, I feel as though I’ve written the same thing about Our Girl; namely that two strong episodes have been let down by ludicrous moments in their final scenes.

dowager-1

We all love Dame Maggie Smith, but it has (arguably) been her role in Downton Abbey which has seen her become admired by pretty much the entire planet, so no wonder the Queen wants to honour her – again!
