5.0 out of 5 stars Annual Downton Box Set 10 Nov 2013
By Brett H TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
A new series of Downton is an annual treat, and as usual this year it is followed by the DVD compendium released just in time to give as a very welcome Christmas present. This includes the 33 episodes to date. There are seven episodes from the first series, eight each from the second, third and fourth, plus the 2011 and 2012 Christmas specials of which the first was a dramatic masterpiece, but the second did not deliver in the same way in the opinion of most people although it ended dramatically.

The four series so far have taken us from 1912, just after the sinking of the Titanic, up to 1922. Each of the four series to date has had a slightly different background. Series 1 takes us to a very formal setting within the household with much concern about match making for the Crawley daughters to find them suitable partners which will secure the financial future of the estate. However, those above stairs are generally shown in largely a sympathetic light in their relationship with their servants below stairs and this sets the scene for the whole subsequent series.

The second series takes us through World War 1. Downton Abbey has been converted into a convalescent home for servicemen injured in the conflict. This quite different scenario provided the script writers with some interesting stories and the series runs from the Battle of the Somme in 1916 up to the end of the war in 1918.

The first Christmas special and the third series take place from late 1919 into 1920. The first features a very dramatic trial and this was probably the single best episode so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray version 29 Nov 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Just to let everyone know there are some blu-ray discs that will play on any blu-ray player regardless of the region. This happens to be one of them.

I purchased this series of Downton Abbey which I absolutely love. I have a blu-ray player (region 2) which I purchased in London where I currently live and I have a Playstation 3 which plays region 1 blu-ray discs. I bought the PS3 when I lived in the states.

When I saw that this series was made by Universal I knew that it would play in my Playstation 3 and it did. If you want to buy this series which i do recommend, it will play in any blu-ray player regardless of region. .

5.0 out of 5 stars COMPELLING VIEWING ! 10 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had never seen an episode on T.V., but decided to buy Series 1-4, at a very competitive price, and see what all the fuss was about !.
This caused many late nights (early mornings), as I had to find-out what happened in the next episode(s). It was well-worth the bleary-eyed mornings: Beautifully filmed a top-class cast and wonderful settings all contribute to magnificent entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Downton Addict!! 5 Dec 2013
By L
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Excellent quality BD boxset. Received within a week to USA (usually takes 2-3 weeks). You will need a PAL TV or PAL blu-ray player to view seasons 3-4. They are encoded at 1080i/50hz (instead of 60hz which is what North America uses)... Just a warning for you overseas Downton Abbey fans like me. I actually bought a cheap little Samsung blu-ray player that converts the 50hz signal to 60hz just for this boxset. But now I can also buy other great UK shows and not miss out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soooo Fab... 10 Dec 2013
By Dickie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bought this bad watched in about 8 days...was sick of not being able to join the girls in their avid conversations about the characters and events at DOWNTON...I missed the first few episodes so never bothered to watch the rest. What an amazing spell binding series.... I laughed, cried and identified with the characters....there is also a DVD of a Christmas special in the pack which was truly brilliant...now I can't wait for this years Christmas special.
Have now sold on as thought it would just gather dust.
What a fab Chrustmas gift this would make!!!
