Dame Maggie Smith will have a "brilliant storyline" in the next series of Downton Abbey, the show's executive producer has said.
Gareth Neame, the show's executive producer, told TV Line: "She has a brilliant storyline this season.
"It's Downton at its best, this storyline. It's fantastic."
He hinted that viewers should expect something a little different from the next series.
"We have the high-stakes drama, the laugh-out-loud comedy and the romance. We have all of the characters doing the things people love to see them doing, but we have a few really nice twists and turns as well," he said.
He added: "Every episode, we'll be having some guest; people come in and out. The show is always a melting pot of the regular characters in addition to guests."
