Over the past week, they've been busy getting into character for their latest - and highly anticipated - project, which transports them back to Edwardian London.
And on Thursday, things appeared to be going swimmingly for Hayley Atwell and Matthew MacFadyen as they shot scenes along London's River Thames for the glamorous BBC adaptation of E.M. Forster's 1910 novel Howards End.
Hayley, 34, was appropriately dressed the era, stepping before cameras in a full-length brown coat, teamed with a red patterned scarf and flowing blue skirt.

With a black velvet hat resting atop her chestnut brown tresses, the actress got into character as she filmed with Matthew, who cut a dapper figure in a top hat and black waistcoat under a midnight blue coat.
Last week, she was seen covered up in a checked red shirt and black button-up maxi skirt as she was spotted in costume for the first time in her role as Margaret.
The Edwardian-themed ensemble was completed with a pair of black leather boots and simple drop earrings.
