The Dowager Countess’ finest burns

Monday, February 29, 2016

In honor of the finale of Downton Abbey coming up on US television, Slate has created a compilation of the best instances of Lady Violet Crawley (Maggie Smith) doing what she did best on the show.
As Americans enjoy the final episodes of Downton Abbey on PBS, it may prove especially difficult to depart with one character. What will we do without the dowager countess, Crowley family matriarch and side-eye royal? In particular, how will we do without her burns? As delivered by Maggie Smith, who won back-to-back Emmys for the role, the dowager’s insults represented the id of a fading English upper class. They were also some of the funniest on TV.
