Quite unintentionally, this site became dedicated to the complex and eccentric Michelle Dockery. My aim is to provide fresh material and perspective for her fans.
In the 'Michelle Dockery Professional Archive' link below you will find the most complete collection of her screen performances on the internet.
Number 9 of my Downton Abbey/Justice Society of America mash-up
You can’t have a Justice Society without an Amazon Princess. Who better for the role than Lady Mary Crawley as played by Michelle Dockery. In my imagined universe, off the coast of the England is a mysterious Isle of Woman – home to the Amazons. Once each generation they send a champion to fight the world’s evils.
OMG is the Amazonia joke intentional?
If You Really Like An Argument
Michelle picking fights with everyone! I really think they cast her for these confrontation scenes.
“That’s why I love acting, because you tap into parts of yourself that you wouldn’t necessarily need to in real life. I’m quite surprised at how out of control I can be on stage, because actually I find I like to be in control in life. It’s quite freeing, really.”

I now have the BBC radio program “Amazonia”. It’s the true story of an idealistic English journalist (Rory Kinnear) who covers the Russian Revolution and falls for Trotsky’s secretary (Michelle Dockery).
It really is quite entertaining. I’ve never listen to a radio program this long, but it’s surprisingly enjoyable. It’s over an hour, so you’ll need to make tea. Preferably served the Russian way. In a glass, with lemon. Samovar optional.
The audio program will be posted early Sunday morning. If the BBC have a problem with it I’d willingly take it down. But there’s no other way to hear this program, as the BBC website says they have no plan to rebroadcast this again, and it’s not on sale anywhere.
