Downton Abbey was the first time I saw Ms. Dockery; she was magnificent; but in Good Behavior--WOW!
She is now my favorite actress. Thank you Michelle for the wonderful hours of entertainment. I look forward to seeing much more of your work in the future. I am sorry I missed your previous works. God bless you and thank you.
