生平

背景

伊莎贝尔·克劳利出生于中产阶级家庭并在早年接受过良好的教育。她来自于一个医学世家,其父亲约翰·特恩布尔爵士(Sir John Turnbull), 兄长爱德华·特恩布尔(Dr. Edward Turnbull), 亡夫雷金纳德·克劳利均为杰出的的医生。在布尔战争期间,伊莎贝尔学习了护理学并成为了一名专业护士。1885年前的某一年,她和雷金纳德相恋并结婚。1885年,夫妇二人的独子马修·克劳利出生。丈夫去世后,伊莎贝尔和马修一同住在曼彻斯特,在此期间马修在一家律师事务所工作。

第一季

马修收到了一封信件通知他成为了格兰瑟姆伯爵罗伯特·克劳利的继承人,包括格兰瑟姆伯爵头衔,唐顿庄园房地产与财产。,一开始马修考虑回绝,但继承权是自动生效的。伊莎贝尔得跟着儿子一起搬到唐顿,开始新的生活。两人居住在克劳利公馆 ,有了一个新的管家暨贴身男仆莫斯利先生与厨娘伯德太太,不过女仆还是从曼彻斯特跟着他们过来的。

Isobel used her nursing skills when she took an interest in the Downton Cottage Hospital. She found a local farmer, 约翰·德雷克, who was dying of dropsy. She was more familiar with the new technique to cure it and persuaded 克拉克森医生 to try it, saving the man's life. Isobel was later appointed Chairman at the Downton Cottage Hospital, which she co-chaired with 维奥莱特·克劳利.

Isobel embodied a different set of values to those of the Crawleys, and because of this was often in conflict with Violet, and 科拉·克劳利.

Isobel found fault with the tradition of Violet winning the rose competition of the flower show every year, and she succeeded in persuading Violet of this, which allowed Bill Molesley to win (at least, she motivated the Dowager Countess to lie and publicly state that Bill Molesley had won it).

第二季

Isobel persuaded Robert and Cora to turn Downton into a convalescent home for injured soldiers, so as to free up hospital beds at the cottage hospital for critical patients. She took up a position of authority at Downton, as co-person in charge alongside Cora, during the war. She and Cora clashed about the daily running and management of Downton's convalescent home. As a result she left Downton for France to work with the Red Cross. She later returned when she discovered that Matthew was injured in the war, and she has stayed at Downton ever since.

Isobel suggested to Violet and Cora that they kept Downton convalescent home open after the war to help the soldiers to rebuild their lives and recover, much to their dismay since both wanted life to return to normal as soon as possible. Violet managed to convince Isobel that refugees left displaced and disadvantaged by the war needed her help more than Downton.

Shortly before Matthew and Lavinia's wedding, Lavinia showed mild symptoms of Spanish flu, so because she would be feeling unwell for the next couple of weeks Isobel decided the wedding day would have to be delayed until everyone recovered from Spanish flu. A few hours later, Isobel and Matthew learned that Lavinia's condition had taken a turn for the worse, and sadly Lavinia died of Spanish flu. Isobel attended her funeral. Later on Isobel attended Christmas and New Year celebrations at Downton with her son.

Isobel and the Crawley family showed their support for John Bates who was arrested for the murder of his first wife Vera Bates. Alongside the Crawley family and some of the staff, who truly believed that he was not a murderer, she attended John's trial and supported John's second wife Anna Bates, and Downton staff members who were called up to the stand during the trial.

She was initially opposed to Matthew's relationship with Mary Crawley, but after the death of his fiancée she helped persuade him to propose to her again, which he did, and Mary happily accepted in January 1920.

第三季

Isobel was one of the few who felt Sybil should return to Downton with her husband Tom, for Matthew and Mary's wedding, and stood up for their right to do so. Sybil later asked her father if he sent her the money to come to Mary's wedding. Robert said that he suspected that Isobel had done so, and Sybil was determined to ask her, before Violet admitted that she had sent it. When Matthew announced he wanted Tom to be his best man, she happily applauded his decision. Though kind and sympathetic to Tom, she did not disagree with Violet when they insisted he dress the part for the wedding.

Isobel's new cause was helping woman reduced by circumstances to prostitution. She found former maid Ethel had turned to prostitution after falling on hard times, and was determined to help her. She supported Ethel through the difficult decision to give up her child to the Bryants. Afterwards, she was kind enough to hire Ethel as her maid despite the disapproval of others, including Mrs. Bird who resigned in protest. Ethel was snubbed in a grocery store, and Isobel said that they should not shop there in the future. Violet Crawley put an ad in the newspaper to find her a new position, in a different place, where she could make a new life. Isobel insisted that it must be Ethel's decision. Isobel was the first person that Matthew told when he learned that he may be heir to Lavinia's father's estate.

After Edith was jilted at the altar, Isobel said that the only way to help her was to find something for her to do. Isobel was at the train station to see Matthew off to Scotland to visit Duneagle Castle. She invited both Tom and Dr Clarkson to dinner at her house whilst the rest of the family were away. She praised Tom for his rise, and later attended the Thirsk fair with Dr. Clarkson. She realized that Dr. Clarkson was going to propose to her and she gently let him know that she had no interest in marriage, thus maintaining their friendship. She saw Matthew again at the hospital when baby George was born, and when Matthew arrived he sent her home. It was the last time she ever saw him.

第四季

文件:ThCAJ3YOJ6.jpg
Tom comforts Isobel.

Isobel, like her daughter-in-law, is deeply in mourning for Matthew's death. At one point when she, Mary, and Tom talk about their deep loves for their lost spouses, Isobel remarks how lucky they were to have loved them so much. Like Mary, she begins to move on and spends time with her grandson. She says George can call her Grandmama, so Cora can be Granny. Sybbie she decides can call her Aunt Isobel, even if she isn't exactly an aunt, but it is close enough.

She quarrels with the Dowager when the latter suspects a gardener Isobel and Dr Clarkson persuaded her to take on of stealing. Isobel goes out of her way to prove his innocence, eventually being proven right. However when Violet falls ill with bronchitis after her son travels to America to see his in-laws, Isobel diligently nurses her, and later they play cards together. She also grows closer to Tom, encouraging him to stay when he considers leaving Downton, and to rekindle his interest in politics.

She finds an admirer in Lord Merton, Mary's Godfather. He comes over for tea with Isobel and Violet. At the end he offers to walk Isobel home but while talking about occupations and children, he asks about Matthew (who is obviously dead). He later sends her flowers, hoping to apologize for his behavior which he felt was rude. He continues to see her by 1923, and when she sees he has arrived at the ball at Grantham House she becomes very nervous, especially when he asks her to dance. Violet notes his interest.

第五季

Isobel is still being pursued by Lord Merton and Richard Clarkson (the family doctor). Violet tries to help her, but Isobel does not seem interested. She along with Violet, went to Lord Merton's estate for tea, where he tries to discuss with Isobel the science of quarantine, on which he was reading in a book.

Lord Merton later proposes and after considering for a few days, Isobel accepts. However she becomes visibly hurt when both his sons treat her with disrespect and contempt. As she tells Violet before Rose's wedding to Atticus Aldridge, she wonders if it would be right to marry Dickie when she knows perfectly well his sons would hate for them to be happy. Seeing the inevitable failure of the marriage, Isobel refuses Merton to which Violet remarked about how delighted Dr.Clarkson will be.

第六季

Isobel heavily disagrees with Violet over what should be done with the hospital, as she believes the Crawleys should relinquish control and look forward to the joys of new equipment, whereas Violet thinks the hospital should be left to the family. Isobel allies with Dickie and Cora and they also pursuade Dr Clarkson to change his opinion in their favour. When the hospital is taken into the new control, Violet is immediately removed from her position as chairman, with Cora appointed as the new. Isobel remains the almoner and happily supports the change. Later, Amelia Grey begins to persuade Isobel to marry Lord Merton, which would allow Amelia to control the household while Isobel should become his nurse. Isobel pays a visit to Amelia at Cavenham Park, leading to Isobel informing Amelia that before she awake Dickie's dreams she needs Larry to show his approval of the marriage himself and not only through Amelia. When Violet heads off to France, she asks Isobel to deliver a letter to Robert which tells him of Violet's plans. They all later head downstairs to the servants' hall to find a present left for him: a dog whom he names Tiaa. Whilst on a visit to the cemetery, Isobel finds Mary at Matthew's grave. She assumes that Mary wants to marry again, at which point she is delighted and congratulates her, and is later invited to the wedding.

2015圣诞特辑

Toward the end of 1925 Dickie develops anemia which is believed to be fatal by his Harley Street doctor. He breaks the news to Isobel when she visits him, worried because she haven't heard from him since he got back from London. Devastated, Isobel goes to Violet who kindly comforts her and helps her realize that she actually loves him. Isobel decides to support Dickie as his friend during his last days. But when she tries to visit him, Amelia Gray denies her access to the house. Isobel, upset, angry and sad goes back to Violet. Violet suspects that Dickie is held isolated at Cavenham Park by Larry and Amelia because they don't want any claims on the estate before he is gone. Violet, stating that "if reason fails, try force!" then pushes her way into the house with Isobel by her side. Dickie, hearing Violet's voice, escapes Larry's vigilance and slips downstairs, very upset at the fact Isobel has not visited. Violet, however, reveals that she did try to but was denied access. When Amelia and Larry try to keep Dickie under lock and key, Isobel at last picks the fight for him and suggests he have his valet pack his things so he can leave and live with her at Crawley House and also declares she will marry him "as soon as it can be arranged" . Dickie is overjoyed by this and happily agrees. They marry and after a while Dickie is feeling better and secretly asks Dr Clarkson to run new tests because he doesn't want Isobel to get her hopes up. Isobel, though, discovers him at the hospital and finds out. They both attend the wedding of Edith to Marquess Bertie Pelham of Hexham and just before the wedding ceremony Dr Clarkson tells them that, according to the new tests, the anemia is re-diagnosed as non-fatal iron deficiency anemia. Isobel and Dickie are both able to quietly rejoice in this good news.

性格

Isobel is a strong-willed individual with a set of values that often clash with the aristocratic views of the other Crawleys, causing tension at times. She is not afraid to speak her own mind, and sticks to her principles no matter what. Isobel believes that the world needs to adapt and change with the times. She takes up causes to help the disadvantaged and strives to make the world a better place. Isobel has a strong "need to be needed" and states herself that she cannot work in a place where her assistance is not required, causing her to chase work in the places that need assistance most crucially. Isobel is a "hands-on" person, good at completing tasks and getting things done, with advanced medical training which comes in handy on several occasions. Isobel is a strong and helpful person. She deeply loves and cares for her only son Matthew and is devastated by his death.

关系

维奥莱特·克劳利

伊莎贝尔和维奥莱特·克劳利之间有着一种微妙的关系,在很多问题上两人时常针锋相对,但又十分享受辩论的过程。伊莎贝尔曾经向自己救助过的女仆埃瑟尔·帕克斯提过她走后两人还会在新的话题上斗嘴皮子。随着时间的推移,两人不再像以前那样对立,逐渐成为了好朋友。1922年,老夫人患上气管炎卧床不起,正是伊莎贝尔无微不至的照顾使她恢复了健康。护理期间,伊莎贝尔整整两天不吃不喝守在老夫人床边。老夫人恢复后,在医生的怂恿下答应陪伊莎贝尔玩牌。到1924年的时候,老夫人和伊莎贝尔的关系愈加密切,是村子里一对形影不离的活宝。当伊莎贝尔决定和默顿男爵结婚的时候,老夫人想到伊莎贝尔即将离开唐顿心中充满无限悲伤。

马修·克劳利

Isobel has a close relationship with her son and lived with him through to his adulthood, both in their house in Manchester, and in Crawley House. She encourages him to move on from Lavinia's death and later to mend his relationship with Mary.

Dr Richard Clarkson

Isobel helps Dr Clarkson at Downton Cottage Hospital, eventually becoming Chairman there with Violet. During the First World War she helps run the convalescent home at Downton Abbey, working closely with Dr Clarkson there. They develop a close friendship over time, with Dr Clarkson becoming interested in a romantic relationship with Isobel. Isobel realises this before he says anything and finds a way to let him down gently before he proposes, and so maintains their friendship.

Mary Crawley

Isobel has a rather formal and unremarkable relationship with her daughter-in-law. Like Mary, she has difficulty moving on from Matthew's death, and is pained to see a resemblance to her son in George. Eventually she begins to move on, and at first is dismayed to see Mary being pursued by other men, but in the end wishes for her daughter-in-law to be happy and does not speak against it.

Tom Branson

Once Sybil married Tom, Isobel was one of the first to insist that they come back for Mary's wedding. She admitted she knew little of him when he was the chauffeur apart from good morning and good night, but she professed her liking for a man of strong beliefs. When Tom did come back, she encouraged him to remain himself and stand up for what he believed in.

After Matthew's death, Tom helps Isobel through her grief and becomes like a second son to her. Isobel inquired after him and his considerations to leave Downton, and they later danced together during Robert's birthday celebration. Isobel tries to rekindle Tom's interest in politics, encouraging him to consider running for the local council and to attend a political rally where John Ward would speak. She later defends him and his beliefs against schoolteacher Sarah Bunting. In 1924, when Isobel is insulted by Larry Grey it is Tom who immediatly jumps to her defense and throws Larry Grey out of the house.

默顿男爵

默顿男爵(迪基)在老夫人府上的一次午宴认识了伊莎贝尔,两人交谈甚欢。午宴结束后,迪基陪伊莎贝尔散步回家。两人散步时提到了各自的孩子,迪基由于对伊莎贝尔不太了解询问了她儿子的状况,伊莎贝尔几乎哽咽的告诉他,自己的儿子已经离开人世,他这才想起她是马修的妈妈。第二天,男爵向伊莎贝尔赠送精心挑选的鲜花以示歉意。

一年之后(1923年),迪基对伊莎贝尔愈加欣赏。当他出现在罗斯小姐的舞会上时,伊莎贝尔非常紧张,但最终还是接受男爵的邀请与之共舞。

1924年,迪基依旧追求着伊莎贝尔,并邀请她和老夫人去他府上饮茶。男爵恰巧刚读完一本关于医学隔离的书目并尝试着和伊莎贝尔讨论其中的门道。他也提到自己的夫人已经去世了并希望能够续弦。一段时间后,他向伊莎贝尔求婚并告诉她自己的求婚是出于爱而不是寂寞,伊莎贝尔听到后惊讶不已表示需要时间考虑。最终,她还是接受了迪基的求婚。

之后的家宴却变成了一场灾难。伊莎贝尔充满期待要在晚宴上和迪基的两个儿子见面,结果迪基的两个儿子,尤其是大儿子拉里对伊莎贝尔毫无尊重,言语间充斥着挖苦讽刺。迪基斥责儿子并要求其离开也没能阻止儿子的无礼。迪基恳请伊莎贝尔不要因此改变之前的决定,但伊莎贝尔对婚事早已心灰意冷。

伊莎贝尔最终决定取消婚约,她告诉默顿自己不希望看到父子因为婚事而疏远。但如果两个儿子能够接受她进入这个家,她还是会嫁给默顿男爵。尽管迪基做出各种努力,拉里还是不能接受伊莎贝尔做继母。数月之后的圣诞夜前,迪基才看到儿子写给伊莎贝尔的信充满了不敬与粗鲁。他对儿子的无礼无比愤怒,再一次向伊莎贝尔表达自己的爱意。但伊莎贝尔没有为此所动,再次告诉迪基自己不想介入他和他的儿子。分手时两人脸上都写满了悲伤。

In 1925, when Dickie is found to have fatal anemia, Isobel finally realizes that she is deeply in love with him. Although being thwarted by Larry and his new wife Amelia, she decides to marry him so they can spend the time he's got left together. After a few months Dickie is feeling better and asks Dr Clarkson to run some new tests. Just before Lady Edith's wedding at December 31, Dr Clarkson tells Dickie and Isobel that the anemia is rediagnosed to non-pernicious.
