Just yesterday I was writing about The FitzOsbornes in Exhile‘s similarity to various series on Masterpiece and its use of Kathleen and Joseph Kennedy, Jr. as historical details. Well, I just saw last Sunday’s episode of Upstairs Downstairs and who should appear at 165 Eaton Place but Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr., the missus, and one of the boys. I missed which one it was–he was skinny like Joe, Jr., but it could have been Jack. He didn’t have much of an impact on the story because it does look as if he was just there because, well, the Kennedys were in London in the 1930s.
