The Walking Dead and Downton Abbey: Season 3 coincidences

After watching season three of both The Walking Dead and Downton Abbey (yes, I watch it with my wife; admit it, you do too), my brain has picked up on some strange connections? Coincidences? Shared writers? They are both somewhat science fiction, aren’t they?

Contract didn't last past season three, hmmmm? And Andrea's role continues in the graphic novels (which is a cool word for comic book)

Old person in cast who for some reason is still alive
Dowager Countess
Despite immobility (both need canes), grey hairs and advanced years, they keep livin' while those around them are dyin'. Must have good contracts.
