5.0 out of 5 stars Downton Abbey on Top Form
The much anticipated Downton Abbey Special delivered the highlight of the Christmas TV viewing schedule in style. There was plenty of action with the central plot featuring Mr Bates on trial for murder at a time when convicted murderers were often hanged and the impact of this on the Downton Abbey household above and below stairs. However, there was a good measure of...

5.0 out of 5 stars Downton Christmas! - Fantastic, 24 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Christmas at Downton Abbey (2011) [DVD] (DVD)
All our Favourite characters are back. Mr Bates and Co all combine to bring some good
resolution to many of the Plot strands that went unresolved after Seasons #2 Disappointing
Finale. Many Fans of this Series point out ( Correctly) that Season #2 was a little 'Off'
Centre - but this Christmas Special - Brings us back - to what we have come to expect of the
Writers, Characters and Plot-Lines of Downton Abbey. I can't wait for Season#3 to begin.

Fantastic!

Two thumbs .... Waaaaay Uuuuuup! =)

4.0 out of 5 stars Christmas at Downtown Abbey, 14 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Christmas at Downton Abbey (2011) [DVD] (DVD)
As an expat who wasn't able to see this episode at Christmas I was delighted with a good quality story which seamlessly continued from the first two series (no good watching this unless you've seen these in my opinion) with all the threads being picked up from those episodes without 'sensationalising' the story for the Christmas ratings, as so often happens. We are left wanting more and I feel confident we will be as happy with the follow up......can't wait

Ugh...may....zing. I love DA. And really, how can you not see this "Christmas special" it's essentially the season finale and the premier to the next. You would be lost of you didn't watch it.

Great viewing. Part of the best series to come out of the UK in many, many years.
However you must watch series one and two before watching the Xmas Special.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted, 29 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Christmas at Downton Abbey (2011) [DVD] (DVD)
Watched it first on TV. The whole cast are a delight, the characters come to life. Have bought the whole collection, and will watch the next episodes and purchase the set again. Maggie Smith as always, is a wonderful dowager and matiarc. Would recommend this to anyone who loves period acting. Feels very authentic in every way.Looking forward to the next episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who doesn't love Downton?, 26 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Downton Abbey has not only been a huge hit on television, but is high-quality drama. The Christmas episode is magical, and the DVD is worth every penny.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is just not for Christmas!, 1 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Christmas at Downton Abbey (2011) [DVD] (DVD)
If you're a fan of Downton Abbey you must see this. Unlike many Christmas editions it doesn't need to be Christmas to watch it! In fact if you don't watch it before the next series you will have literally lost the plot, as the saga continues from Series 2. Seriously I watched it on a summer's evening and was totally absorbed.

After the end of season 2 - and with a long way to go before we see season 3 here in Denmark - I needed answers to a lot of questions. Got those, were entertained 1st class - and then got some extra questions, which is only nice. Not too much happy-ending-stuff! Just great acting by great actors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable, 6 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Christmas at Downton Abbey (2011) [DVD] (DVD)
I must admit, i was a bit disapointed with season 2 with Downton Abbey. However after seeing this christmas special this disapointment vanished because i was so pleased with the outcome of this episode. As again the costumes were lavish and the acting of the cast was spectacular. Maggie Smith once again stole the show with her usual witty comments. I liked this episode because it tackled with all the elements and cliff hangers that were addressed at the end of season 2. Also the ending was so beautiful, im not going to spoil it for anyone but seriously, it has to be my favourite scene in the whole of the Downton Abbey series. Two thumps up to Julian Fellows for this successful episode :)
