When “Downton Abbey” returns for its fourth season, it will be six months after the death of Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens), but it is still a house in mourning, especially for Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery), who lost the love of her life.
Former “Downton Abbey” star Dan Stevens has apologized (sort of) for devastating “Downton” fans on Christmas Day, but he contends that killing off his popular character was not his doing.
