Dockery (a.k.a. feisty heiress and widow Mary) took to Instagram to post an adorable reunion photo of the two.

"Reunited. @thatdanstevens I've missed this face," she wrote as the caption to the sweet black-and-white picture, where she has one arm wrapped around Stevens, 32. "#bafta #LastDaysofDownton #matthewandmary."

The Golden Globe and three-time Emmy nominee is documenting the final days of production in a series of photos that she is tagging #LastDaysOfDownton.

So far, she has been focusing mostly on the off-screen talent, including producers and crew who've worked behind the scenes to make the program, which premiered in 2010, such a success.

Hugh Bonneville Grateful and 'Amazed' That Downton Abbey Lasted Longer Than One Season

Originally posted 03/27/2015 11:00AM

Though the show's massive international success could hardly have been anticipated, Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville is somehow "amazed" that the award-winning show went beyond its first season – as was everybody else involved.

"Those who follow the show might remember at the end of [season] 1, there was a slightly odd feeling because some of it was wrapped up in case the show never returned and some of it was led to pen in case it did – so, there was no guarantee the show was going to continue," Bonneville, 51, told ITV's Good Morning Britain.

Downton Abbey Producer Discusses Decision to End the Series, What's in Store for Season 6

Originally posted 03/26/2015 02:00PM

After confirming on Thursday that Downton Abbey will conclude after its sixth season, executive producer Gareth Neame discussed the decision, admitting, "It's a very emotional day for all of the people involved in the show."

"The danger with this sort of thing is to let them go on forever," Neame told reporters during a conference call.

Neame stated repeatedly that ending the show was a joint decision between producers and cast. He also dismissed claims that creator Julian Fellowes solely forced the issue or that the show is shuttering under pressure from exiting cast members (particularly Golden Globe winner Maggie Smith), falling ratings or the show's networks (ITV in the U.K., PBS in the U.S.).
