In Downton Abbey and the world of Harry Potter, we are introduced to servants who deal with their limited choices and restricted freedoms in very different ways. Some servants accept their lot and make the best of it, others find ways to break free. What do you think of the paths chosen by such varied characters as John Bates and Kreacher? Could you be as faithful and dedicated as Anna or Winkie? Let's explore the role of the servant -- and what it can teach about accepting the limitations in our lives or finding the courage to break free.
