I am heartbroken. I heard that Dan Stevens hadn't signed a contract for Season 4, but was hoping that it would get worked put. He had become such a pivotal character in the series this season. Don't know if they can fill the gap.

They better find a miraculous cure for auto-accident before next season, that's all I'm saying!

There really isn't much hope since the actor decided to leave the show.

I've not watched yet, but knew it was coming from reading the interview with the actor at the beginning of the season.

I think I could've handled Matthew dying better if they had not just lost Sybil. Does anyone know if that actress decided not to renew her contract as well? Seems strange that the writers would put 2 major deaths like that in the same season.

I love this series but the term jump the shark comes to mind. If he wanted to leave than they shouldn't have killed Sybil. By using the death card twice, so close together just felt angsty and too much. I couldnt even work up a gasp. as soon as the voice over started i knew and i was so dissapointed in the show. However this is actually common, the English seems to love a grandiose death scene. I have learned not to fall in love with characters in bbc shows. Now though it was maybe just too much and I don't feel any anticipation for a next season.

The actress who plays Sybil wanted to leave too. They really didn't have a choice, I guess, but to kill off both the characters. Actually, the English were terribly disappointed with this plot line too. I certainly was and the newspapers were going on about it too. I honestly am going to miss Matthew, he was one of my favourite characters! The series have all relied on him so I wonder what series 4 will be like.

It was bad enough watching it on a cold night in February - but from what I understand, this final episode was shown in the UK on CHRISTMAS DAY! Yikes!!! It really was SUCH a beautiful episode with the music and scenery and then BAM! Dead Matthew. NOT GOOD!!! And Mary was turning into SUCH a witch in recent episodes. I can't imagine what she's going to be like after this!

I was planning on watching it tonight but after reading these posts.....I don't think I can. I was so upset when Sybil died. I just don't think I want that same sadness right now.

Yup, we saw it on Christmas Day. It left me depressed for the rest of the evening, that's for sure! I wonder how Mary will cope with it.

Do watch it, most of the episode is pretty happy. It's just the last minute or so that is so sad. As soon as Matthew leaves Mary with her baby at the hospital, turn it off, and you'll avoid seeing the accident.

I thought they should send Matthew to Australia to take care of a very important business matter. Since he'd have to travel by ship, the trip would be very long and he would be there for months. I really didn't like they killed off two new parents. I think they could have found a more creative way to handle one of the departures than killing the character. Sybil and Tom could have decided to make a new life in American with Shirley MacLaine's help.
