Downton Abbey at the cinema: TV-sized acting that looks grotesque on the big screen
The film leaves nothing left to ridicule, no cliché unexploited and no spectacle to recommend it.

Halo Effect - Chapter 1 - Alex51324 - Downton Abbey [Archive of Our Own]
(1 fic/?)

The Halo Effect is the tendency for a positive impression in one area to produce a more generous or optimistic interpretation of ambiguous information in other areas.

When Thomas rescues Lady Mary from the nefarious attentions of Turkish houseguest Kemal Pamuk, his employers and coworkers begin to see him differently...and Things Get Better.

A Season One AU diverging from canon in Episode 3, The One Where The Turkish Gentleman Dies in Mary's Bed.

Halo Effect - Alex51324 - Downton Abbey [Archive of Our Own]
Mr. Carson scoffed, and blew on the tea to cool it.  “He’s not half as clever as he thinks he is.  I know perfectly well what he’s up to.”

“All of the others have been allowed to have their dates,” Mrs. Hughes pointed out.

“And he’s been on more of them than anyone else, if that’s the way he wants to play it.”

Mrs. Hughes gave him a flat look.  “I’ve spoken to Anna about it, and as far as I can tell, the young man is perfectly respectable.”

Mr. Carson gave her a look that mirrored her own.  “I don’t see how that can be.”

“With one glaring exception, perhaps,” she conceded.  “I think it’s rather sweet that he’s gone to the trouble of arranging a chaperone.  He’d not have had to.”

Prelude - Once_More_With_Feeling - Downton Abbey [Archive of Our Own]
Mrs. Hughes shows Thomas a bit of kindness, on a difficult day. Set before all my other stories; after the war, but before Jimmy.

Sapping Attention: Making Downton more traditional
"So I thought: why not just check every single line in the show for historical accuracy? Idioms are the most colorful examples, but the whole language is always changing. There must be dozens of mistakes no one else is noticing. Google has digitized so much of written language that I don't have to rely on my ear to find what sounds wrong; a computer can do that far faster and better. So I found some copies of the Downton Abbey scripts online, and fed every single two-word phrase through the Google Ngram database to see how characteristic of the English Language, c. 1917, Downton Abbey really is."
