    He is an Amazing Lover. Tom knows how to keep a Woman happy. He kisses her with his Warm Breathe all over her body, on her Neck, and Stomach. He feels her warm sweat as he pulls her body closer. He penetrates deep inside her, filling her completely and feeling the sensation spread everywhere in his body. He keeps the passion alive with Bedroom toys at AthenaToysDotcom

    I’d like to see Julian Ovenden play Mary’s new love interest. He was excellent as the son of Christopher Foyle in Foyle’s War. Tom Cullen resembles Thomas the butler too much for my liking. Thomas the butler is, incidentally, very handsome out of character. Please, Mr. Fellows, make it Julian Ovenden! :)

    O’Brien is definitely my least favorite character…but I’m a definitely sad that Finneran’s decided to leave the show. Perhaps her secret will get out and she’ll be fired? I can’t think of any other reason she’d leave Downton.

    I hope that all of these new cast members don’t change the show too much. I do like Jimmy, though Alfred is a bit annoying. I’d be happy to see Thomas gain a boyfriend, though, perhaps Green?

    @lou: I don’t think Tom Cullen looks much like Rob at all, they have a completely different bone structure and complexion. Really, it’s just the dark hair, and that’s not too uncommon.
