As the housekeeper at Downton Abbey, Mrs Hughes is in charge of all the female servants and in making sure the house is kept in order. With her air of authority, yet kind, motherly instincts, Mrs Hughes certainly keeps everyone in line.
She helps solve a lot of the disputes between servants and acts very much as their strict, yet loving, surrogate mother. She still harbours regrets for the life she missed out on, though her current one is certainly eventful. An old flame causes her to rethink about her life and she realises that her job as housekeeper has changed who she once was and she cannot go back.
How will she cope when the male servants leave to fight in the war and how much does she regret the life she left behind?3/8/2011 . Edited 3/8/2011 #1
