Maggie Smith may soon become familiar with another modern innovation: binge-watching.
Smith, 81, has never watched her hit show Downton Abbey, but the British dame may watch all six seasons on DVD now that the period drama has wrapped.
"They gave me the boxed set," she told CBS News on Sunday. "And I'm going to do all sorts of things now, 'cause I'm free!"

After six seasons, 52 episodes and plenty of heartbreak, we're gearing up to bid our final adieu to everyone's favorite aristocrats – and their servants – in an episode that Downton star Michelle Dockery told The Telegraph she "felt sick" shooting.
Luckily for those across the pond, Americans still have a whole season of 1920s-set intrigue to experience.
That being said, proceed through the rest of this article with caution – spoilers ahead!

For fans of the PBS series Downton Abbey, the chance to live like a Crawley is a little bit more obtainable today – the Dowager Countess's house is on the market.

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."
