Masterpiece Classic has long been party of my weekly repertoire, and Downton Abbey is no exception. In fact, it has almost become an obsession. So it made me very excited to read an interview on Mr. Porter with Ian Kelly, one of the actors who played a doctor at Moorfields Hospital last season. Kelly is a very accomplished stage and screen actor, and he’s also a biographer. Mr. Porter interviewed Kelly on not his roles nor his books, but rather his clothing. With two young children, the publication questioned how he worked a wardrobe into his daily work routine. My favorite quote: “It is hard to maintain sartorial standards with baby food down your lapels.” Well put, Mr. Kelly. Well put.
