Re: Downton Abbey - contains spoilers for season 4

I don't think it had anything to do with worry about character development.
My point was that I think there were further reasons beyond phenomenal work offers. It seems strange to me that Dan Stevens felt no sense of obligation to stay on the show as its lead character.
