|Yes, it is bloody humongous!|
Harking back to the beginning of the series, this parody written as a novel commences with "Cousin Isabich" and her son, "Atchew," arriving at the castle after the legitimate heir to the estate goes down with the Gigantic. The aristocratic Crawfishes (Lady Flora and Lord Roderick) and their three daughters—Marry, Enid, and Supple—are duly perturbed (not enough to affect their naughty charades and 22-course dinners, however). Downton lovers will revel in the arrival from America of Flora's "annoying mother," Surly McPain; in the below-stairs stratagems of Tomaine "the first footmasseur" (and his partner in malignity, "Potatoes" O'Grotten); in the valet/maid lovebirds Brace and Nana; and in the diary of poor benighted Laizy, the scullery maid.
