We're going to miss the Crawley family. Multi award-winning British TV series Downton Abbey, which premiered in 2010, is nearly at its end. The sixth and final series will run for nine episodes before a Christmas special ties everything up.

"Inevitably there comes a time when all shows should end and Downton is no exception," executive producer Gareth Neame said of the series that earned accolades at the Emmy Awards, the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The last Christmas special left viewers with so many burning questions. Will Lady Mary finally find love? Is Isobel adamant about declining Lord Merton's proposal? How will Tom's leaving to Boston affect the family? Will Anna and Mr. Bates be free of Mr. Green's murder case? We could go on.

In other news, it might be a little too late for Ellen DeGeneres and Minnie Driver to join the cast of Downton Abbey, but they weren't going to shy away from showing off their tea-drinking, stuffy gown-wearing skills.
