Vote in the Anglo Fan Favorites Tournament, Women of 2013: Round 2
Maggie Smith vs. Michelle Dockery
No, this Downton Abbey matchup wasn’t by design: Maggie really was last week’s top vote getter in her defeat of Sherlock‘s Una Stubbs, while Michelle was the lowest-ranked winner of Round 1. (She took out Jessica Raine.) But it’s a tough choice for Abbey‘s fans, who treasure Smith’s withering quips as Violet but also appreciate the craft behind Dockery’s haughty yet sympathetic Lady Mary.
