How seriously do TV viewers take what happens to the Crawleys and those in their sphere on Downton Abbey?
So seriously that, as the series' creator and writer Julian Fellowes recently admitted to PEOPLE, he even gets yelled at "a bit" by members of the public when something they dislike takes place on the show.
"And they know it all," the Oscar- and Emmy-winner, 63, said about the public's reaction. "They have opinions that are better than mine."
SPOILER ALERT: Details of Sunday's broadcast are about to be revealed.
