Downton took hold during a new golden age of television dramas. Where does it fit in terms of that legacy?
Gareth Neame: There are so many shows people really respect and admire like Mad Men and Homeland—two shows I revere. If I may make one claim for Downton, it is that it is a show people love. There may be other shows that are revered, but there’s something about ours that has been a love and a joy for people—not just in the U.K. and the U.S. but in every country around the world.
Will there be a Downton movie?
Potentially there could be a movie. There won’t be [another] television show, but you might see them in a movie.
