Drama right to the death.

Byline: TV COLUMNIST IAN HYLAND

IF I was in charge at Downton Abbey, I'd want it to go out with a bang.

And with a wedding - or two - in the air I can think of no better way to end things than by taking a lead from Dynasty's infamous wedding massacre of 1985.

I'd have Thomas, the under-appreciated under-butler, wiping out the Crawley family by sneaking into the kitchen and poisoning the salmon mousse from the wedding banquet while Mrs Patmore was out enjoying a secret tryst with old Mr Mason.

The only survivor would be Maggie Smith's Dowager Countess who would close the final chapter by stamping her cane on the ground and harrumphing: "Well. I did tell them no good would come of this match."
