‘Downton Abbey’s’ Michelle Dockery on Mary Mourning Matthew and What’s Next for the Show

First, Matthew’s killed in a freak accident (a car crash! In 1920!). Then, a handful of handsome new actors are cast to woo the newly widowed Mary next season. Michelle Dockery understands why this might be upsetting for “Downton Abbey” fans who’d invested three years in Matthew and Mary’s romance. She agrees Dan Stevens’s exit was “brutal” — even though all of the actors had apparently been predicting a bloody good-bye — but promises the aftermath of Matthew’s death will be worth it.
