'Viceroy's House' follows the life of the last Viceroy of India who was the figurehead of relinquishing British rule on the Indian subcontinent in 1947. Lord Mountbatten and his wife Lady Edwina Mountbatten were charged with overseeing India's newfound independence, wanting the nation to stay united as one. However, India was already divided by religion, with Muslim leader Muhammed Ali Jinnah wishing to establish a separate country in the form of Pakistan. The Partition of India was not a desirable option for the British rule, but as the civil unrest grew amongst the people and people began to divide themselves anyway, it became the only option for minimal damage to all nations.

The actress previously stated her character would be too old to take part in a big screen version of the period drama.
Dame Maggie Smith has reportedly signed on to take part in the heavily rumoured ‘Downton Abbey’ film. While a movie version of the series has not yet been confirmed, Smith’s fellow cast member Michael Fox has said that the veteran actress will be taking part in a big screen adaptation.
Is ‘Downton Abbey’ the movie, really happening?
Speaking to MailOnline Fox, who played Andy Parker, said that Smith’s involvement was crucial to the film. “She elevates it to something else, because she is such a legend and a national treasure,” he said.

These actors have plenty in store this year.
It's been just over two months since 'Downton Abbey' ended for UK viewers, while the US still has the sixth and final series to complete. So what have all the main cast members been up to and where are we going to see them next? Some are sticking to the UK, but others are broadening their horizons.
But what's Maggie Smith up to?
Many of the 'Downton Abbey' stars were already well-established in their own right, but for others the show has been a stepping stone to bigger things. Hugh Bonneville is of the former category, and he's looking pretty busy this year what with the new 'Hollow Crown' series coming up in which he stars as the Duke of Gloucester. He's also finished filming the UK/Indian drama 'Viceroy's House' with Michael Gambon and Gillian Anderson.

Fans are joining #TeamEdith, after the Crawley sister was once again done out of her happy ending.
Yes there’s still a Christmas special to come, but after six series on ITV, ‘Downton Abbey’ ended its run last night, with a surprise wedding and a suicide attempt. But while Lady Mary Crawley got what she wanted (as usual), her younger sister Edith was denied her own happy ending, leaving some viewers furious.
After six seasons ‘Downton Abbey’ has ended on ITV.
During the episode unlucky in love Edith had her chances of happiness stolen, when sister Mary ruined her relationship by revealing details of her secret love child to fiancé the Marquess of Hexham, Bertie Pelham. But while Edith faced a lifetime of loneliness, all was okay for Mary, as she wed Henry Talbot.
SPOILER ALERT: The incident happened near the end of Sunday night's episode.
There was absolutely no contest on Monday as to what the previous night’s ‘watercooler moment’ on TV had been, as the shocking end of the most recent episode of ‘Downton Abbey’ took most of us by surprise.
The normally genteel ITV programme, currently in the middle of its sixth and final season, temporarily turned into something resembling a scene from Alien as Lord Grantham’s stomach complaint, a plotline bubbling under the four episodes in the series thus far, erupted – quite literally – as his ulcer burst, causing him to projectile vomit blood over the dinner table and his dining companions.
Looking increasingly pale as the hour-long episode went on, Lord Grantham (played by Hugh Bonneville) stood up in the middle of dinner to interrupt an argument about a local hospital to declare he was feeling unwell, when the bloody scene unfolded.

The Crawley’s will reportedly be forced to downsize in the show’s upcoming final series.
‘Downton Abbey’s’ final season looks set to be a harsh goodbye for the posh Crawley family, who will be forced to make some drastic changes to their lavish lifestyle. According to reports the family will be forced to massively downsize during the show's sixth and final season and they may even loose their servants in an effort to cut costs.
The final season of period drama ‘Downton Abbey’ is approaching.
According to The Mirror The Earl of Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) will realises he needs to take steps to save money after visiting a neighbour that had to sell the family silver to make ends meet. This means that staff at Downton will be given their redundancy notices and the family will have to learn to take care of themselves.
The 'House of Cards' star and theatre legend stepped down from his role at one of London's oldest theatres after more than ten years.
Stars from throughout the world of theatre came together to praise Kevin Spacey as he stepped down as artistic director of London’s The Old Vic after more than a decade in the role.
In an event hosted by ‘Downton Abbey’ star Hugh Bonneville, the likes of Elizabeth McGovern, Jeremy Irons and Eddie Izzard paid tribute to Spacey’s contributions to reviving the fortunes of the Old Vic, at which he took the reins in 2003. He now vacates to make way for Matthew Warchus, who is set to unveil his opening season later this week.
Recorded tributes were also included from James Bond director Sam Mendes, Sir Elton John and even former American President Bill Clinton, and there were a handful of musical performances by Sting and Annie Lennox.
Maisie Williams, the actress best known for her role in 'Game of Thrones', will guest star in 'Doctor Who'.

Downton Abbey could be heading to the big screen.
No more than 24 hours has passed since we got news that Downton Abbey would be coming to an end after its sixth season, but it seems the show will live on it some capacity. Executive producer Gareth Neame said he and creator Julian Fellowes would be "very interested" in a movie spin-off.

"It would be a wonderful extension. Julian and I would be very interested if we could get our ducks in a row," he told Deadline.
