SPOILER ALERT! ‘Downton Abbey’ Continues Filming Season 3 [PHOTOS]

March 7th, 2012 // 2 Comments

The cast of Downton Abbey gathered in Oxfordshire, England on March 5th to film the much talked-about wedding scene between Mary and Matthew (cousins, but lovers) for season three.  From the looks of things on the set, it appears that nuptials went on as planned.

Crew members shielded Mary’s wedding dress with umbrellas, but we did get a peek at the back of her veiled head in the carriage.  Those we spotted: Elizabeth McGovern, Penelope Wilton, Dan Stevens and Rob James-Collier (Thomas, you crap weasel).

In news that will leave you late for dinner (Mrs. Patmore will keep it warm downstairs), the Guardian reports that Dame Maggie Smith may not return to Downton past season three.  Neither she nor Stevens has committed to season four (news of a renewal was announced last week), which makes me very, very nervous, as the Dowager Countess is the heart and soul of the operation.

    what do you mean Dan Stevens will not return to part 3? Are you completely mad? I have not waited 2 years, spent hundreds of dollars to buy part I and II for me and friends to see Lady Mary be given to some complete stranger!! This can not be true.

    And I am ready to prepare a national petition for Maggie Smith to BE THERE. “I do not mean to be rude dear … ” (I do not mean to, but I most likely am about to be)… D.A. without Maggie Smith is like the New York Harbor without the Statue of Liberty!

    I want more pictures of “Matthew”. I’m very happy to know that he is in Episode 3. He must sign up for Episode 4. I watch it because of him.
