Scope and content

Julian Fellowes said Bampton residents had "remained supportive and hospitable" throughout the filming of the series . Christmas Day was the last opportunity for viewers to follow the fortunes of the aristocratic Crawley family, as Lady Edith finally got her happy ending, Lady Mary found out she was pregnant and Anna and Mr Bates welcomed their first child. However, Lord Fellowes also said he would like to see the show on the big screen. "It's possible and I hope it happens, I mean I'm up for it because we'd be able to do things in a film we've never been able to do on television and we can have a much larger canvas", he said. However, he added: "But it's not my decision. It's up to the studio." Other film locations for Downton Abbey include Highclere Castle in Hampshire, which is the fictitious family's stately home.
