Downton Abbey and the Romanovs

MR CARSON: Why don’t you stay and have something to eat?

ETHEL: Mr Branson’s been telling us the news from Russia.

MR CARSON: And what news is that?

BRANSON: Kerensky’s been made Prime Minister, but he won’t go far enough for me. Lenin denounces the bourgeoisie along with the tsar. He wants a people’s revolution. That’s what I’m waiting for. Won’t be long now.

MR CARSON: And what happened to the tsar?

BRANSON: Imprisoned in the Alexander Palace with all his family.

MRS PATMORE: Oh, what a dreadful thing.

BRANSON: They won’t hurt them. Why would they?

ANNA: To make an example.

BRANSON: Give them some credit. This is a new dawn, a new age of government. No one wants to start it with the murder of a bunch of young girls.
