Michelle Dockery and Maggie Smith on the Set of “Downton Abbey, The Movie” in Wiltshire

Posted on September 26, 2018

More pics to squee over, darlings! If you haven’t checked back in on the Downton Abbey set pictures post from yesterday, you might have missed all the updates and character sightings. Once you’ve gotten yourself up to speed, say hello to Lady Mary, looking pretty damn fab:

Even the Dowager’s looking pretty sharp these days. There’s been so much talk about wished-for plotlines and speculation as to where this film is going to go, but if it’s anything other than a Greatest Hits compilation of character bits and quotable lines, we’d be very surprised. We’re sure there will be some bare-bones plot that’ll give every character a moment to shine, sort of like a much tweedier, quieter, more English version of Avengers: Infinity War, but we can’t imagine there will be major forward movement or shocking turns of fate for any of them. It’s a fan service film. And unless Julian Fellowes plans on pulling some sort of Rian Johnson-like dumping-of-cold-water on the fandom’s collective heads, we think it’s safe to assume he’ll give the fans exactly what they want: a check-in with all their old faves to see how they’re doing.
