Is the end dawning for Lady Mary and the Earl of Grantham?
Just as the stars of Downton Abbey – Michelle Dockery, Hugh Bonneville, Maggie Smith, Joanne Froggatt and the others – prepare to shoot season 6 in the spring, speculation has arisen that this could be the popular series' last.

No meth labs. No superheroes. No steamy sex scenes. So what exactly is it that's got me – an avowed avoider of most things period, British and cozy – hooked on Downton Abbey?
As Season 5 kicks off (on PBS at 9 p.m. Sunday), I think it's the show's sense of human decency – amid rapidly changing times and trying circumstances – showcasing the Granthams' (and most of their circle's) ability to maintain stiff upper lips along with soft hearts.
Season 5 is a quiet but pleasurable one – nothing truly major happens, and that's just fine. After the devastation of World War I and, closer to home, the sudden death of Lady Mary's husband Matthew Crawley back in Season 3, there's enough tragedy still reverberating.
