Julian Fellows a.k.a the creator of Downton Abbey, has hinted that he might quit as the writer of the show because of his other commitments.

But don't worry, this doesn't mean the end of Downton as Julian has hinted that the show may continue without him.

Speaking to The New York Times, he suggested that he may have to give priority to his new US pilot The Gilded Age over poor old Downton.

He said, "If I'm doing a series at NBC, I would not be able to write all of Downton and all of that series at the same time.

"I would hope that by the time all the hurdles have been cleared, the timing makes it so I can then concentrate on the new series.

"If Downton goes on - of course, that's not my decision - then it would be with other writers. Perhaps with me supervising, but with other writers."

He also hinted that he might prefer to wrap the series on his own terms, rather than see it carry on too long.

He added, "My own belief is that these things have a life, and one of the tricks is to recognise when it's time to come to an end.

"But we haven't made a decision when that will be. Some things go on for 20 years, don't they, but I just don't see Downton being one of them."
