This Woman Would Like To Replace Laura Linney Introducing Downton Abbey On PBS [VIDEO]

Warning: May Contain Feelings

I was inducted into the Downton Abbey cult last year and can now completely understand what all the fuss was about. And I am absolutely quivering with anticipation of Season 3 premiering on PBS’s Masterpiece Classic tomorrow night! So it was a happy coincidence I came upon this video on Patton Oswalt’s Twitter feed. It features Janie Haddad Tompkins in her hopes of replacing Laura Linney as the person who introduces Downton Abbey on PBS. Or, getting back to her old gig, as the case may be. Enjoy and enjoy the new episode of Downton tomorrow!
