Well, thank goodness Mrs. Hughes came through this scare with flying colors! I can see the larger breast cancer community already petitioning PBS for a more realistic portrayal of breast cancer in the first half of the twentieth century. (Spoiler: it wasn’t too different from the second half.)
I have to say that I am relieved that all ended well for our favorite housekeeper. The scenes of waiting, worry, and fear were all too real and it was impinging on my absolute delight in the activities of the Dowager Countess.
