“There was something about that time after the series [Downton] had ended … About looking at something with fresh eyes and feeling nervous about what’s ahead,” Dockery said. “Then suddenly we were just writing music.”

She added, “It’s a whole different set of skills and vulnerability; Acting tends to start with what’s already written on the page. Music can begin anywhere. It’s different and very freeing.”

Fox said, “I will always love acting but there is something about us, some part of our characters that we haven’t fully realised – and that’s happening now.”
