Product Description

Exclusive to Amazon.co.uk

Includes 2013 diary with cast photographs (inside the DVD box, not a separate item).

This third instalment of the Golden Globe and six-time Emmy award-winning series sees the return of all the much-loved characters in the sumptuous setting of Downton Abbey. As they face new challenges in the 1920s the Crawley family and servants who work for them remain inseparably interlinked--their lives rendered even more complicated by a turbulent wartime. Now the storms of war have finally cleared, will the way of life known by all the inhabitants of the great house have changed forever?

This exclusive edition contains the Downton Abbey 2013 Diary: an elegant, ring-bound week-at-a-glance A5 diary celebrating the series--the aristocratic Crawley family and its household staff, the sumptuous interiors, the incredible, historically precise costumes--with dozens of full-colour photographs and quotes, printed on glossy paper with a high quality finish. The diary has a paper weight of 300 gsm cover, with internal pages 150 gsm and a total number of 132 pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Downton Abbey Series 3 - Great Entertainment 4 Nov 2012
By Brett H TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The much anticipated Downton Abbey Series 3 starts in Spring 1920, carrying on from the superb Christmas Special which was set over the 1919/20 holiday period. The first episode picks up with Lady Mary and Matthew Crawley at last about to get hitched, but as usual there is quite a lot going on at Downton both above and below stairs and you just know that nothing is going to go smoothly.

Shirley Maclaine soon makes her appearance as Martha Levinson, Lady Grantham's American mother. As usual, Violet, played with style by Maggie Smith manages to set the scene with some rather pithy comments. Martha has no time for the stuffy English and their traditions and is not slow to voice her opinion. Clearly she was introduced as a foil to Maggie Smith and the interplay between the two does work very well as one suspected it would. Violet seems to manage to continue to dominate any scene she is in with or without Martha in attendance!

There are plenty of dramatic and unexpected moments in the new series, as life on the Downton estate returns to more as it was shown in the first series, before the First World War when it served as a convalescent home for injured servicemen. However, in common with other large estates, there are new challenges for Downton in the post war period and it is necessary for there to be changes for Downton to survive. The interaction between the family and those that serve them 'below stairs' continues to be a rich source of story lines for the script writers and is a major contribution to the success of the show.

Downton Abbey is the most successful costume drama from British TV since Brideshead Revisited some thirty years ago which is quite an accolade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Downton Delivers Delightfully. 4 Nov 2012
By ACB (swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Series 3 introduces Cora's mother Martha,in 1920, superbly played by Shirley MacLaine. A challenge for the Dowager Violet (Maggie Smith) who can speak volumes with an aside frown or one-liner? Full of thrills, emotion, sharp-tongued wit, it sets the episodes to follow. Matthew and Mary return from their honeymoon, all lovey-dovey, with Martha doing things in the American style, not to everyones taste.

Violet sets to work with attacking charm. Of course, this revolves around the rest of the cast, magnificently written by Julian Fellowes. Matthew (Dan Stevens) has the money to bail the financial Downton disaster but is not forthcoming. Anna Bates (Jeanne Froggatt) never says die and gets her reward with Bates. Matthew and Robert (Hugh Bonneville) have short shrift on the estate. Thomas (Rob James-Collier) and O'Brien (Siobhan Finneran) seem to be in cahoots but the situation takes a change.

Thank goodness for the female intuition. The sparkling and tense above and below stairs works wonders. Sense has the final say. Lady Edith is almost content with new work and potential romance, Lady Mary still strong, butler Carson demonstrable and Violet's great niece Rose adds another dimension. Takes a cricket match to sort it all out. Where do we go from here? The ending leaves another series wide open. A Christmas Day Special is eagerly awaited. I'm sure Julian Fellowes has more up his sleeve. Wonderful fun and entertainment. Another hole in Sunday night programmes. Enjoy the recordings. Say no more apart from an hour plus of extras.
