Things I Like: Isobel Crawley (Downton Abbey)

Isobel Crawley opens letter Downton Abbey

While far from the most important character in the series, I liked Isobel. She’s Matthew’s mother, and she is with him when he reads the letter than informs him that he is the heir to the Earldom at Downton.

A widow, she has lived with her son all of his life, and follows him to the mansion estate. While she takes kindly to most (especially the servants), her sons’ well-being was obviously paramount to her.

And she takes a big emotional hit when he dies in the third season. I thought it was odd that she felt like she had nothing to live for, despite having a living grandchild with George Crawley.

But she eventually recovers and embraces everyone and loves them all, for the most part. I didn’t really think her marriage at the end was terribly exciting or interesting, but I liked her sweet nature.
