The name of the green grocer is Mr. Bakewell. In the DA series in Season 3, Ethel the now cook (former housemaid at Downton who became pregnant) for Isabel comes home upset that Mrs. Bakewell had refused to serve her due to her being a former prostitute, however Mr. Bakewell did albeit reluctantly. Bakewell is also the name of a village in Derbyshire famous for it's Monday market with all varieties of produce, meats, dry goods etc. This is likely where the name of the grocer came from.

While King George V inspects the troops, he is accompanied by a man dressed in lord lieutenant clothing. This is incorrect as Lord Grantham is the lord lieutenant of the local area, yet he is sitting in the 'VIP' area instead of with the king. See more »
I adore the TV series, and this film was more of the same, which I loved. It is full of the same beautiful production quality, wit and humour.
I can hear the criticisms already 'it was too sentimental', 'there wasn't enough complication' but my answer to that is that many of these characters had intense story arcs in the show, so it's nice to revisit them now and see them living, or finally getting, their happy endings without too much drama.
Everyone in the cinema, myself included, laughed the whole way through this film, as is to be expected from Downton Abbey. And then there were other moments that were quite poignant to offset the humour, which blended perfectly.
Yes, it's a movie for fans of the show, but why shouldn't it be? After years supporting this show and following these characters, why shouldn't we be rewarded?
I had high expectations for this film, and was very satisfied with it, and that doesn't happen often. Well done to Julian Fellowes for staying true to his characters and delivering a film that is a delight to watch!
