To be truthful, I can't wait for the Christmas special!
The old aristocracy is still coming to terms with post World War 1 social changes and the pressure is on to modernise the old estates.
The old traditions still linger however as the end of season Christmas Special is partially set in Buckingham Palace for the presentation of society daughters to the King and Queen.
The servants appear to have experience a similar roller coaster this time with Anna begin raped by the valet of a visiting Lord. But by then end and again in the Christmas Special live for Anna and Mrs Bates appears to return to normal and is there the start of romance between Carson and Mrs Hughes?
I have cancelled my order until the price drops to a more realistic level and Amazon apologises for attempting to rip off the public.

If you purchase this UK version you will not get the complete series. The last episode is missing from this series. You have to buy it separately. If you don't purchase the extra episode events in the next series will not make sense. The US versions have all of the episodes. This is the studio making money & not informing the sellers of this situation.
Downton has moved with the times, and, as usual, great care has been taken to make the setting, including all the small details, correct for the period. Hence clothes and hair styles have changed and advances in technology, such as telegrams, telephones and even new fangled electric kitchen gadgets are evident. The cast has all the significant characters who survived the last series, so Maggie Smith continues as the matriarch who dominates every scene she is in and can always be relied upon for a caustic comment. There are some new faces to look out for, one of whom is Kiri Te Kanawa, the New Zealand opera singer as well as a couple of other well known characters in cameo roles.
More of the scenes this time round have been filmed on location in London. Meanwhile at Downton itself, the antics and interaction of those `below stairs' continues to contribute some very interesting story lines and their trials and tribulations are, in many ways, one of the most interesting aspects of the show. Above stairs initially Lady Mary is, understandably, rather subdued whilst Lady Edith takes a much more prominent role, having, perhaps, been somewhat overshadowed previously.Read more ›
