Downton Abbey is back on our screens for a fifth series, and we couldn't be more chuffed...
Downton Abbey: Christmas special 2012: Matthew Crawley and Lady Mary
Downton Abbey returns to ITV1 off the back of a very successful third series (or third season, if you're reading this across the Atlantic). However, the question on everyone's lips concerns the future of Dan Stevens.
The actor has become famous on both sides of the Atlantic for his role as Matthew Crawley. He is reported to have not signed on as a regular for the forthcoming series in 2013.
Speaking on the subject, writer and creator Julian Fellowes told US publication Entertainment Weekly: "Sometimes actors feel they want to move on. If they don't want to come back, there's nothing we can do." To date, there has been no official confirmation either way.
What can viewers look forward to in the special airing on Christmas Day? Well, Dan Stevens' Matthew is very much in evidence. But take a close look at Lady Mary (played by Michelle Dockery)... is she pregnant?
