|Mary, Lord Grantham, Tom and Isis, the dog.|
"We can expand without destroying."
These words were uttered by Lord Grantham on Downton Abbey, regarding a housing developer's idea of coming in and building "cheap houses" (Lord Grantham's words) on some acres of the Downton estate.
It seems that Mary and Tom met a developer, in the early 1920s, this is, who would like to build cookie cutter houses on part of the estate, which desperately needs the money. But in the end, Lord Grantham took the side of the villagers and decency, rather than a quick money fix. He went on to say that the developer would come in, build cheap houses and then be on to his next conquest.
