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.

Downton Abbey (2019) was directed by Michael Engler. We loved Downton Abbey as a TV show. The film is like two more episodes of the show. A few new characters, but mostly everyone that we knew before is back.
Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary is still beautiful, Maggie Smith is still fabulous, and Jim Carter as Mr. Carson is still the world's most perfect butler.
The film assumes that you know the characters, so there's not much backstory. It's fine if you do, indeed, know who everyone is both upstairs and downstairs. Only a few new characters are introduced, so you can sort them out pretty quickly.
We saw the movie at Rochester's excellent Little Theatre. It won't work quite as well on the small screen. However, don't forget that we all originally watched the show on the small screen. Still, director Engler has some great outdoor shots, which make the production values appear even more lush.
Downton Abbey has a very high IMDb rating of 7.9. I gave it a 7.0, because I thought that director Engler could have had more creative, better plots. It's still a must-see if you're a Downton Abbey fan. If you're not familiar with the show, learn some of the basic plot lines before you watch the film.
