Set down that saucer of tea and wipe away the crumpets, shocking news lies in store. After six decadent seasons spent at the luxurious Downton Abbey, producers have officially confirmed that the Crawley family will say goodbye.

There's older British people being witty, older British people getting it on, and older British people rediscovering life and love and happiness in India. Oh, and then there's Richard Gere as the new token American.
