Ter­ror­ist cell in Downton? Surely not

Macclesfield Express - - BARLOW’S BRIEF -

HAS any­one no­ticed that the dog in Downton Abbey shares its name with a ter­ror­ist or­gan­i­sa­tion?

How did that hap­pen? What were the pro­duc­ers think­ing? Surely he re­alised nam­ing the Downton dog Isis was ask­ing for trou­ble.

Mr Cameron is suf­fi­ciently in­censed to or­der air strikes. (What’s wrong with throw­ing a stick?)

Worst of all the Downton dog is a Labrador. Who ever heard of a sub­ver­sive re­triever? An Afghan hound maybe but never a Labrador.

I’ve banned my dogs from watch­ing Downton. I don’t want Murphy rad­i­calised. I have enough trou­ble as it is when Mrs B gets in­flamed. The last thing I need is a pack of an­ar­chic ca­nines.

No more Sun­day night TV for my dogs. From now on it’s Coun­try File fol­lowed by an early night.
