Oh, Matthew, You Deserved So Much Better

5th Estate
Matthew Crawley tragically left Downton Abbey for what I assumed was a broader career, but I just spotted him in a role that’s beneath him: A journalist in The Fifth Estate. While the Julian Assange biopic showcases The Grey-Haired One’s ego (he dyes it, by the way), that’s no reason to relegate Matthew to the equivalent of a walk-on. Hey, Downton Folks! Take this page from Dallas: Can’t Matthew’s death be nothing more than a bad dream? He deserves better than the Assange movie and if this is why he left the hit PBS show, bring him back. Alive, please.
