Downton Abbey DVD Commentaries → S1E1 (Julian Fellowes, Gareth Neame, and Brian Percival)
Julian: I thought Brendan did that fall incredibly well. How many times did he have to do it?
Brian: Probably about half a dozen.
Julian: Oh my god! Because, I mean, he was on gravel so he must have given himself such a whacking.
Brian: I think he scratched his hands a little but he did have knee pads and elbow pads on.
Julian: This worries me slightly that they go into the house without waiting for him to get up but perhaps we’re making a statement there.
Brian: Kinda quite like the fact that he’s left alone outside.
Julian: Oh no, I like the fact that they’re alone at the end.
