Many of us will miss Dan Stevens, who has played Matthew Crawley in the PBS, Masterpiece television series Downton Abbey. Evidently Dan is moving to the film screen in a movie with Liam Neeson. However, Downton Abbey, which won the SAG award for best ensemble in a dramatic series, has many fine actors left in the series.
Downton Abbey has been an entertaining, historical, heartfelt series with the finest of British actors (and some notable American ones). It has been refreshing to see such a good television series without the following R-rated elements: language, bedrooms scenes, nudity, violence...
