Trivia

When Violet says "When we unleash the dogs of war we must go where they take us", she is making reference to Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" in which Mark Antony says "Cry havoc! And let slip the dogs of war." See more »

Goofs

At the dinner for Mr Chamberlain, the Earl of Grantham is suddenly taken ill, and is diagnosed with a perforated ulcer. This condition would, however, rarely present with major bleeding as shown here, but rather with intense abdominal pain. He is taken to the local, very small hospital and operated on. In a telephone call to Mr Carson, the Earl is said to have undergone a gastrectomy. This is a major surgical operation, taking in excess of 1-2 hours, which would require resources far beyond those of this hospital, and also not be indicated. The preferred procedure in a perforated ulcer case would be to close the perforation. See more »
