Downton Abbey

Winner of 6 Primetime Emmys® including Outstanding Miniseries

Set in an Edwardian country house in 1912, this new British series portrays the lives of the aristocratic Crawleys and those who work for them. Upstairs is the family, downstairs are the servants, as possessive of their ranks as anyone above. Created by Julian Fellows (Gosford Park), starring Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, and Elizabeth McGovern, it's "an impeccably polished stroll back to the past"— Metro(London). A hit in the UK, seen on Masterpiece Classic.

Downton Abbey: a story masterfully dramatized with captivating From From the outset the personalities are real. Not only does the cast hold everything together at every point. There is a constant fascination at the manner in which Downton characters lead the viewer into and out of complicated developments. The production has real substance and is totally removed from the general trash in which we often find ourselves trapped in this "progressive age". So refreshing to pass time with convincing reality. Currently, I am ripe for Season 4. (Will I be moved to look for Season 1. Very likely.

What a fabulous series! I find myself catching the episode that aired on Sunday...again on Wednesday. And the second time around is just as intense as the first. The series has me reflecting on my ancestors--what were they doing, thinking, wearing...during this time period? We are shaped by those who trod ahead of us. And what decisions do we make today that affects the generation fifty or a hundred years from now.

Absolutely great show. Period costumes are excellent in attention to detail, acting is tremendous, story is great. Truely a spellbinding story. Was all set to relax and experience an "all's well" ending to season 3 when . . . what a devastating ending!

All my friends are enjoying all of them...however, I wasn't expecting the ending so far...I know #4 will be forthcoming sometime (not too soon for me)...and the best acting and lines of all are from M. Smith. She is superb...but then it's all just wonderful.

This series has been my favorite for the last 3 seasons. As with most BBC/PBS productions it is top notch. I bought it so I'd have a permanent record of this great program. It's been a long time since I've been as enthralled with a TV program. Like millions of others I'm sure, I hated the fact that Matthew had to meet such a sad demise. I found myself yelling at him to slow down and not drive so fast.

Had to have the third season as soon as it was available, so I pre-ordered with Acorn. Unfortunately, a few million others did the same and mine was put on back-order, making it a couple weeks late. Then, I found it cheaper at Sam's Club, so I was kind of bummed because I paid more and it came late. The series is primo in quality, so I highly recommend it for viewing. And you gotta own it so you can watch it more than once; you'll want to!

The differences between 'upstairs' and 'downstairs' individuals are shown clearly and sensitively. The respect and pride each pereson takes in his/her position 'downstairs' is portrayed so beautifully. I love this series and can't wait to see the next installment.

Season 1, Episode 1
April 1912:- The heir to the title of Earl of Grantham, long time inhabitants of Downton Abbey, perishes on the 'Titanic'. Robert, the benevolent current earl, owes his wealth to his American wife Cora but they have only three daughters, who cannot inherit by law, so another heir must be found by marrying off Mary, the eldest girl. The Duke of Crowborough is a possibility but he is a closet gay who only has eyes for Thomas, the handsome but obnoxious footman, and soon departs. Robert's mother, the dowager, and Cora decide that the next best candidate is Matthew Crawley, a distant cousin, but Cora knows that the spirited Mary will not be happy with their choice. Downstairs there is also unrest as Thomas is passed over for promotion to valet in favor of Robert's batman from the Boer War, John Bates, who now limps due to a war wound. Along with Cora's maid Miss O'Brien, Thomas schemes to discredit Bates in the eyes of butler Carson and forces his resignation but Robert intervenes and keeps him on. Thomas vents his anger on second footman William but he has an ally in the sensible housekeeper Mrs. Hughes.

Season 1, Episode 2
September 1912. Designated heir Matthew Crawley and his mother Isobel arrive and move into a house in the grounds of Downton Abbey but Matthew is uncomfortable with having servants and is not keen on an arranged marriage - something he has in common with Lady Mary. Robert's mother Violet looks down on them as they are not from her class - Matthew is a working solicitor and Isobel, a trained nurse and doctor's widow, who nonetheless impresses when she helps at the local hospital and saves the life of one of Robert's tenants. Cora upbraids the two nastiest servants, O'Brien and Thomas, for sneering at the Crawleys but impresses upon Mary the financial need for the marriage. Carson is blackmailed by Grigg, a man with whom he once had a music-hall act but Robert takes his part and sees Grigg off. Whilst Carson feels foolish for having a less than aristocratic past he is supported by Bates and the two men become friends.

Season 1, Episode 3
March 1913. Gwen, one of the maids, has bought a type writer and has applied for a secretarial post. Most of the staff are dismissive of her aspirations but the family - except Violet of course - are supportive and middle daughter Sybil offers to supply a reference. Evelyn Napier, considered an eligible catch for Mary, arrives for the hunt, bringing his handsome friend Kemal Pamuk, a Turkish diplomat, who throws himself at her. He goes to her room at night for sex, during which he dies of a heart attack. Mary, Cora and head housemaid Anna return the body to his room and agree to say nothing but are seen by Daisy the kitchen maid. The gruesome twosome of O'Brien and Thomas are also suspicious. Matthew spends a delightful day with Edith, the youngest daughter, whilst Mrs. Hughes literally helps Bates out of a painful situation and they become friendly.

Season 1, Episode 4
May 1913. A fair comes to the village and here Mrs. Hughes meets up with an old flame, Joe, who once asked her to marry him and does so again but once more she refuses. Despite being gay Thomas escorts Daisy to the fair purely out of spite as he knows William is fond of her. The gesture is not lost on either John Bates or Mrs. Hughes. Daisy is not called for interview for the secretarial post but Sybil agrees to support future applications. A new chauffeur, Tom Branson, arrives. He is well-read and politically aware. Having got one over on Isobel regarding a medical diagnosis, Violet attempts to talk Robert out of a need for an arranged marriage but fails. Mary, seeing herself as no more than a commodity, unburdens herself to Matthew and they get a little closer.

Season 1, Episode 5
August 1913. O'Brien and Thomas continue to spread their malice, ensuring that Lady Edith learns from Daisy where Kemal died and attempting to frame John Bates for the theft of a snuff-box though Anna, clearly fond of John, ensures the plan backfires on them. Thomas's gossip also discredits Lady Mary's eligibility as a bride and the family must entertain the middle-aged Sir Anthony Strallen as a prospective husband. Mary is bored by him and it brings her closer to Matthew but Edith seems genuinely interested in him. Mrs. Patmore, the cook, must accept that her eye-sight is failing and Lady Sybil continues to encourage Gwen in her secretarial applications whilst Isobel actually teaches Lady Violet some altruism at the annual produce show.

Season 1, Episode 6
May 1914. Encouraged by politically aware chauffeur Tom Branson, the socially conscious Lady Sybil espouses politics as a means of aiding equality for women and the lower classes, to her father's anger. At a political meeting she is injured in a scuffle and rescued by Matthew. A grateful Lady Mary accepts Matthew's proposal of marriage but tells her mother she feels she should come clean about Kemal to him. Rumors about this indiscretion are now rife and Cora tells her mother-in-law how she helped Mary move the body. Edith continues to see more and more of Sir Anthony whilst O'Brien and Thomas continue to persecute John. They tell Carson they saw him steal wine and get Daisy to support them. However Daisy does the decent thing and admits she was put up to it. Bizarrely, John, though he knows Thomas to be the wine thief, offers no explanation, confessing to being a former alcoholic and offering his resignation.

Season 1, Episode 7
July 1914. In London former suitor Evelyn Napier assures Lady Mary that it was Edith, not he, who spread gossip about her and Kemal. Mary counters by wrecking her sister's marriage plans with Sir Anthony. Robert is reluctant to dismiss John even though O'Brien and Thomas have obtained a letter claiming that he stole from a previous employer. Anna accompanies Mrs. Patmore to London for eye tests, resulting in the cook being prescribed glasses and, whilst there, discovers that John took the blame for the theft for his ex-wife Vera, a fact which Robert is pleased to hear. Thomas, fed up at his failure to get John sacked, and sensing war on the way, joins the Army Medical Corps whilst Sybil finally gets Gwen her secretarial post. Cora is pregnant, a fact which puts the proposed marriage between Mary and Matthew in doubt, should the baby be a son and heir. However, thanks to O'Brien leaving a bar of soap on the floor, Cora slips and miscarries. All the staff except O'Brien cheer William on as he beats Thomas up for his unfeeling remarks on the loss. Matthew nonetheless feels that the engagement was only an act of pragmatism likely to be altered if an heir had been born and decides to leave Downton Abbey. But everybody's news is over-shadowed as they hear that, as expected, Britain is at war with Germany.

I really enjoyed the period feeling of the show and seeing portrayed how people and their servants of that era lived. I also find the story line to have intrigue, little twists in the plot, and humor, which leaves me wanting to watch another episode.

Worked out well in the end. The catalog said that one and two was as a package at a given price. When I went to order they said not available but could be bought as individual pieces. They were available and the offer was to have lasted until 12/22. They finally worked the price out and I am pleased about the product.

What can one say that hasn't been said already? It is wonderfully cast, acted, filmed, costumed, realized. Here is a combination that really works. My concern for the casting of Shirley MacLaine would be that the friction level between her character and Maggie Smith's character could prove to be--uh--tiresome. But everything else has been done well so we will keep an open mind.

loved the series on PBS and just had to have my own copy and one for a friend. most definitely engrossing - you just get sucked into their world. the characters are well-crafted, well-acted; you actually care about what happens to them. having to wait for each installment on PBS was torture, so having my own copy to watch whenever is fantastic. the other reviewer is right, you'll end up watching the entire series in one go... woman's note: I want their clothes!

There is nothing I dislike about this mini series. Oh I get disgusted with the characters-Thomas, O'Brien,but the show is a step back in time. Who cannot love Maggie Smith as Violet, even though Violet is such a mean snob. Elizabeth McGovern all grown up as Lady Crawley and the footman Thomas, so evil and mean but oh so sexy. Gay or straight. Obrien, not so fond of, I think because I've known people like her..they always get by, no matter how wicked. Bates, Carson, all the servants...wonderful. I can't wait for the next season. I am going to buy the collection and have a Downton Abbey week-end. I found myself getting out an old tea service of my Grandmothers and actually using it!

I purchased Downton Abbey thinking that it was like a mini series and would be finished with these 3 disc's. Not so, but I can't complain it was money well spent. I look forward to the next season with great wonder on where it's going next. I would recomend this for one of those long nights at home by the fire because once you start watching it you don't want to stop. It's like a book you can't put down.
