In an interview about the quintessential television programme, which stars Hugh Bonneville and Dame Maggie Smith, the 29-year-old says devotees to the show will be "really surprised" by the plots.



The ITV show - which follows the Crawley family as Britain heads into the First World War - became a runaway success during its first series.



On the latest series, Dockery, who plays Lady Mary, told The Telegraph: "There's a wedding, a funeral and a sex scene, I'm in two, no wait, I'm in one of those,"



"The thing is, I can see people will think that I am involved in a particular one of those three, but I'm not. People will be really surprised."



Dockery - who plays the daughter of the distinguished Earl of Grantham, played by Bonneville - added that the scandal that haunted her character in the first series would rear its head again.



Unmarried Lady Mary smuggled a male visitor into her bed - where he inconveniently died.



She said: "The incident with the Turkish diplomat comes back to haunt Mary in the second series. I can't tell you why, but it could literally bring down the whole Crawley family - it's huge."
