    OMGoodness, tell me that "you know who" (don't want to spoil for those who haven't seen it yet)....is DEAD!! I sure hope not!! That person is one of my favorite characters. I wonder how long we have to wait until Season 4??

    Yes, he wanted to leave the show.

    I know - I was so disappointed - I read that the real life person that played that character wanted off the show - so the writers didn't have alot of choice - rather than replace that person - they decided to kill him off.
    I hope we don't have to wait a whole year for Season 4 - I just love this show.

    Well, it does give PBS yet another reason/chance to beg for money. On my station the schedule showed it ending at 11pm but the actual program ended at 10:45. I watched for another 10 minutes hoping they would have one more scene of Downton but Nooooooooo only commercials for DVDs.

    I was afraid this was coming, since there was a whole lot of lovey dovey going on for the past 2 episodes. I'm always so surprised about the British lack of emotion between characters and miniscule family interaction with baby Sybil. That stiff upper lip needs a tweak!

    Yeah, I'm still mad!!! I knew it was coming when Matthew was tooling happily down the road and they switched to a clip of a truck coming from the other direction. My neighbors must have heard me yell "Oh No....I knew they'd do that!!!" I may calm down but right now I don't know if I'll watch it next season. I've been ticked off that the season was so short and didn't start til January anyway. Here's an article that explains some of it:

    http://insidetv.ew.com/2013/02/17/do...matthew-death/

    If they thought that Matthew was too dull, you would think they could have livened things up a bit. I was happy with him as he was. In the article someone sugg. that Tom might get together with Mary but I can't see that at all! Monroe said: "I'm always so surprised about the British lack of emotion between characters and miniscule family interaction with baby Sybil. That stiff upper lip needs a tweak!" I hadn't thought of that but you're right, not much about baby Sybil. The article also says pressure has been for them to start it in September as they do in England and not wait til Jan here. Supposedly there was info around about the ending since it ended in Dec. in England.

    I've loved this show but this really ticks me off!

    P.S. I think I'll watch for Dan Stevens (Matthew) when he's in other things and decide not to watch him!! I hold grudges!! Maybe they weren't paying him enough!!

    I let it be known to my family that for Mother's Day and my birthday which is also in May I'd love the three seasons of Downton Abbey on DVD please.

    Maybe this particular actor had reasons to leave, such as the filming schedule being limited. one must earn a living. or maybe it was family issues. who knows? it's not a problem to me. I like him as well as all the other actors. those that stay or leave, one way or another. it's a great show. wish we did them like that here!

    Sorry to see him go but wouldn't want things to get dull I guess...just about broke my heart to see Mary gazing so happily at her new baby not knowing the pain that will take hold....interesting story line!
    They do seem to get on with things rather quickly I think. She'll be dating some hunk in no time at all I imagine.

    The next season won't be shown in the US until January, 2014. That is just wrong!!!
