Is Matthew Crawley Leaving Downton Abbey? A Dowager Jane Austen Rap

According to the Huffington Post and a hoard of other media Dan Stevens aka Matthew Crawley could be leaving the popular UK show Downtown Abbey after season 3.

"Dan Stevens could be leaving "Downton Abbey." According to the Daily Mail, Stevens might not return for "Downton Abbey" Season 4. Stevens is currently appearing on Broadway in "The Heiress" and said he might stick around the Big Apple.

"New York for me is going to be one big adventure," Stevens said. "I will be taking the whole family out and we will be there for six months. I don’t know if I will be returning to 'Downton.'"

However, "Downton Abbey" creator Julian Fellowes told TVLine in July that Stevens is just doing a limited run and that he's still in the show."

Yesterday on the Facebook group Downton Abbey Season 3 someone posted a Jane Austen rap and I thought I might do the same about possibly losing our fair Matthew Crawley. Enjoy!

            Sense and Sensibility Dan Stevens Please!



Is Dan Stevens going to stay on Broadway and not return for Season 4?
Not having Matthew around will be a tremendous bore,

If Dan leaves; lots of ideas for endings shall be sought,

Will Mathew be felled on an Easter special leaving Lady Mary distraught?

If Matthew dies maybe Mary and Branson can begin shagging - and that I would pay to see,

Will Mary become Lady Mary Branson on the Christmas special two thousand sixteen?

The two gay footman will announce their engagement at the same time,

Allowing the Dowager to ask,

"And what exactly is a Civil Partnershp?" Tisk task!

Or will Matthew and Mary go to the United States only for Matthew to be killed by the mob?

Then Mary can fall in love with an Irish cop,

Allowing an American to be the leading man, and I shall sob,

Maybe Dan should look up David Caruso before making any rash moves,
Downton without Dan is a bad idea and not very smooth,

Why don't they just do what others do; give him a new face so we wont be blue,
Of course Dan is is not James Bond or Dr Who,

I don't think I could bare to see Matthew without Mary,

After each episode, I would have to go for a lie-down,

Because it would be so emotionally draining,

But alas, there's my Downton ringtone and it makes me smile,
As you see my interest in Downton is never waning- so let's hope Dan stays for awhile.

Have been very very ill - just trying to be my strength back,  and enjoying your writings.  I adore Downton Abbey,

Mary is the spitting image of my own mother who was born in 1900 had me very very late in life.

She was 5'11", jet black hair, pearl white skin, and flat chested.  Everytime I watch it I think of her and the one and only picture of her I have when she was about 36.

Where do you live??? I always think you are here in Toronto. but I think perhaps you live in

Los Angeles.  We must connect this year for sure.  Take care, Barbara Ann MacMahon-Firestone.
