Abbey of the Ju­lian Fel­lowes-scripted show.

The eight-part fourth sea­son will pick up in the early 1920s.

Michelle Dock­ery, who plays Mary, is cen­tral to pro­ceed­ings in Sun­day’s Christ­mas episode.

Lady Mary is never far from the ac­tion, Dock­ery says, be­cause she’s a char­ac­ter who thrives on be­ing un­pre­dictable.

‘‘ She would hate to be bor­ing,’’ Dock­ery says.

‘‘ She makes wrong de­ci­sions and strug­gles with her heart and her head.

‘‘ What would be per­fect (for Mary) would be an heir, and that is what she is long­ing for.’’ Ad­di­tional re­port­ing: Al­bertina Lloyd Downton Abbey, Chan­nel 7, Sun­day, 8.30pm To­gether: Michelle Dock­ery and Dan Stevens in
