‘Downton Abbey’ season 4 notes: Allen Leech, Tom Cullen, and a dog

IsisAllen Leech’s feud with the dog – It has been a while since we have done a formal “Downton Abbey” notes article, so why not start off with something that we find hilarious? Sometimes, watching a Twitter feud can be ridiculously entertaining, especially when things start to really go haywire and you can begin to compare it to a verbal beatdown.

This one, mind you, is a little bit unfair … mostly because one of the targets that we are referring to here is a dog, and the one made famous on “Downton Abbey,” no less. Allen Leech has been having quite a bit of fun with this four-legged friend as of late, giving us viewers a chance to feel as close to the series as possible without really spoiling much of anything in the process. Not only did he share this photo on his Twitter account, but he included the following caption to go along with it:

“Now this is a step too far. That is MY top hat… #isis #diva gloves and hats are off!”

Even though this is not even remotely spoilery we do find it kind of cute.

A tease from Tom Cullen – Tom is playing a prospective new love interest to Michelle Dockery’s Mary this season in Lord Anthony Gillingham, and he recently shared a brief update on Twitter to our friends over at Downton Abbey Addicts as to how much he is enjoying being a part of this show’s rather-massive family:

“Filming is wonderful. You’re all in for a real treat. This cast is ridiculously amazing.”

Cullen is one of the more noteworthy additions, and unlike some others a la Shirley MacLaine, he will be around for a substantial length of time.
