'Downton Abbey' is coming to an end, but its executive producer is offering hope that a follow-up film is at least a possibility.

By ending the TV drama several years shy of the 1929 stock market crash, producer Gareth Neame says rich territory is left to be mined if a film is made.

He told US TV critics that it had been discussed, but there was no script or a firm plan.

Neame says a 'Downtown Abbey' movie could be a "wonderful thing".

The series about the upstairs-downstairs occupants of a stately English home will end production on August 15. Its sixth and final season will be shown later this year in Ireland and Britain and early next year in the United States.
