Downton cast throws Fiddly-Dee Ponky-Tonk some lovely shade

In the ever-continuing saga of Benedict Cumberbatch vs. Downton Abbey/British society/the world, three members of the Downton Abbey cast speak out. Sort of. A couple of hours ago, Hugh Bonneville (Robert), Dan Stevens (Matthew) and Allen Leech (Branson), all changed their twitter pictures to the September cover of Reader's Digest, which features Cumberbatch and the headline "Move over Downton". This is the issue that contains Cumberbatch's quote about Downton being "f***ing atrocious."
