Downton Abbey…Ghosts in Highclere Castle?

With a mere 91 days and a few hours to go before the PBS Masterpiece premiere of Downton Abbey 2, the UK reached the mid-point of the critically-acclaimed second series last night. Joanne Froggatt, who plays the clever and resourceful Anna, the highest ranking of the lower female servants, might have had a few additional inhabitants on the set to deal with during filming that, no matter which side of the pond you find yourself on, we can’t readily see on the screen each week.

According to Lady Carnarvon, the châtelaine of Highclere Castle where the series is filmed, says that the country pile is haunted. “There are a few different ghosts here. We all know who they are. Some people see ghosts. Some don’t. It doesn’t matter. But a lot of people have lived here, and I think you can tell when something terribly upsetting has happened in a room.”
