Re: Downton Abbey - contains spoilers for season 4

I dunno, I thought they were setting up a very good dynamic with Branson/Matthew vs. Robert on the future of Downton. I think that'll most likely continue now without Matthew, but I could very easily have seen Matthew's character growing and developing as Downton became his own. I think if Dan Stevens didn't trust Fellowes to take his character in that direction, then that would explain why he left. And I think that's probably the cause with all three actors we saw leave: they didnt trust Fellowes to develop their characters further. But I think out of the three of them, Dan Stevens/Matthew was at the best position perhaps out of all the characters in the entire show to progress and develop, perhaps besides Branson and Robert.
