Storyline

March 1913. Gwen, one of the maids, has bought a typewriter and has applied for a secretarial post. Most of the staff are dismissive of her aspirations but the family - except Violet, of course - are supportive, and youngest daughter Sybil offers to supply a reference. Evelyn Napier, considered an eligible catch for Mary, arrives for the hunt, bringing his handsome friend Kemal Pamuk, a Turkish diplomat, who throws himself at her. He goes to her room at night for sex, during which he dies of a heart attack. Mary, Cora, and head housemaid Anna return the body to his room and agree to say nothing but are seen by Daisy the kitchen maid. The gruesome twosome of O'Brien and Thomas are also suspicious. Matthew spends a delightful day with Edith, the middle daughter, while Mrs. Hughes literally helps Bates out of a painful situation and they become friendly. Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

There were no surnames in Ottoman Empire and in Turkish Republic until 2 July 1934. People had titles such as Pasha. Therefore, there could not be a name such as Kemal Pamuk in that time. See more »

Lady Mary Crawley: He says he's found a pub that caters for hunting.

Big mistake about Turk
15 August 2013 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

At the time, was mentioned in this show, Turkish people had no surname in their full name. You can check Surname Law (Turkey)from From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia with referenced information. So, Kemal PAMUK is the perfectly wrong chosen as Turkish name for that period of time. I guess the name of Kemal was chosen because of Mustafa KEMAL Atatürk, the founder of Turkey, the leader of Turkish War of Independence and a commander at Gallipoli Campaign. Also the surname is also very famous for foreign people because Orhan PAMUK had been awarded the 2006 Nobel Prize in Literature. PS The prize was very political and interesting prize for him after he said "One million Armenians and 30 thousand Kurds murdered by Turks".
