Mr. Carson & Mrs. Hughes
Carson, Charles: The Butler and head of the staff at Downton Abbey has come to consider the Crawley family his own. Though he’s a bit on the cranky side, he’s a total marshmallow underneath and is always fair in his leading of the staff.
Hughes, Mrs. Elsie: Downton’s housekeeper is often Mr. Carson’s confidant. I love Mrs. Hughes. She doesn’t fuck around.
