“ 你知道吗,我母亲总是告诉我,别把事情记在纸上。现在多亏了你,我再也不会这样做了。 ”
—克罗伯勒公爵对托马斯·巴罗说。

菲利普,克罗伯勒公爵(Philip, Duke of Crowborough)[1]克劳利家族的一位朋友。

背景

他的生平披露甚少,只知道他自称是一名建筑学学生。

第一季

玛丽·克劳利小姐原本打算嫁给自己的堂兄,当时的唐顿继承人帕特里克·克劳利。后者于1912年死于泰坦尼克号沉船事故后,玛丽相信自己有更好的婚姻前景,她马上把目标对准这位年轻英俊的公爵。查尔斯·卡森对一位公爵来访唐顿感到十分荣幸,并相信玛丽一定是一位出色的公爵夫人。

菲利普来到唐顿庄园后,礼节性地表达了自己的哀悼,尽管他并非真的认识帕特里克,只是“零星地见过几面”。 萨拉·奥布莱恩绊倒新任贴身男仆约翰·贝茨的手杖,害他摔倒在公爵面前。

After dinner Philip requests an interview with Robert, presumably to ask for Mary’s hand in marriage. But when he learns that Robert was not intending to challenge the entail on the estate which now made his unknown cousin Matthew his heir, he withdrew his offer without ever in fact making it. He later told then-footman Thomas Barrow that he had to marry an heiress, even it meant he had to go to New York to find one.

公爵与托马斯。

It was revealed that Thomas had brought the Duke to Downton, with a telegram luring him with the prospect of marrying Mary for the Grantham money. After he had previously visited the Crawleys in London, he and Thomas shared a summer dalliance. Thomas had intended to become Philip's valet after the wedding. When this fails, he attempts to further his own career using blackmail, by threatening Philip with love letters that the Duke had written to him. However, Philip was one step ahead of Thomas, using Mary as a cover to go exploring the servant's wing, he had rummaged through Thomas's room. Thomas, held back by the Duke, could only watch as the incriminating letters went up in the flames after Philip threw them into the fireplace. Robert later told his wife that he was not happy about Mary being pursued by a man who had turned out to be a golddigger. Cora reminded him he had been one himself when he courted her, and they turned out well.

The following morning, Philip left Downton. Bates was about to leave with him, as he had been fired and was being dropped at the train station. Robert stopped the car at the last minute and allowed Bates to stay, stating to Carson that it did not feel right.

注释

  • 本剧中他从未被称呼过名字,只提及过他的头衔。第一季官方剧本揭示了他的名字为菲利普,但其姓仍未知。
  • 尽管他从未正式解释过为何他急于迎娶一位女继承人,最有可能是他面临着财务危机,正如罗伯特娶科拉时的境况。
  • 到目前为止,公爵是托马斯已知的唯一情人。托马斯表达了他对公爵的爱,说自己想和他在一起,但托马斯的情感究竟是真诚的还是为了达到目的没有说明。托马斯后来再未提到过他。
