The entire third series of the award-winning ITV costume drama following the lives and loves of those above and below stairs in an English stately home. With World War One finally over, the 1920s heralds the promise of a new age for those at Downton Abbey. But while the family prepare for the wedding of Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) and Matthew (Dan Stevens), Lord Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) learns that the future of Downton is in grave jeopardy after the collapse of investments made with his wife (Elizabeth McGovern)'s fortune. With the family beginning to gather for the wedding celebrations, a grand entrance by Cora's thoroughly modern mother, Martha Levinson (Shirley MacLaine), threatens to ruffle a few of the Dowager (Maggie Smith)'s feathers.

However, massive caution - these box sets are not complete and the Christmas specials are missing so i think a complete rip off to infer you are buying the complete series! I excitedly lined up the first in the next series only to be completely confused and bamboozled by the storyline before I eventually looked it up on line and realised what had happened - so not only is it frustrating you have to go and buy that but far worse you then spoil the plot completely for yourself as all the major stuff obviously always happens at Christmas in these things and is immediately given away pretty much the minute you start watching the new series! So far I think this has been on series 2, 3 and 4 (so will put the same review on those) but imagine there may be more later.
It is obviously up to the producers of the DVDs to sell what they want for whatever price they want and not even saying that the price they charge is necessarily wrong but it is being mislead that is so wrong!
I love the old words like "hobbledehoy" , "flabbergasted" or "crikey".
The actors are brilliant. Maggie Smith as that rusty, clever old bat. Elisabeth Mcgovern and Shirley Mclaine as the American salt in that English soup. Jim Carter as Carson is a picture of an Butler. Here sticks more to the old fashioned standards than the lordship/ladyship themselves. It's a pleasure to listen to what comes out of his very noble mouth.
To keep ist short. If you want to take a glimpse in the times before and after World War I and if you are interested in the problems of all sorts of people (rich and poor, English and Irish, men and women) than go for it. If you like "Upstairs - Downstairs" with the Bellamys, Hudson, Mrs. Bridges, Rose, etc. you will love it.
Greetings from Germany.
There are also periods of sadness and joy for all levels of the Downton house hold, with others fairing better than others.
However, for a dramatic and unexpected ending, nothing compares to the conclusion of the Christmas Special.
At times enjoyable soapy froth, at other times moving, addictively watchable- with the added bonus of the Dowager Countess (Dame Maggie Smith) having the most delicious, pithy putdowns delivered with exquisite timing-this is the best series-IMHO-yet!
I felt the 2nd series somewhat patchy-but this is a definite return to form!
The extras on this dvd include: Downton Abbey 1920; The Men of Downton Abbey; beind the scenes of the Weddings; Interview with Shirley Maclaine; plus, for some reason, a preview of Les Mis!
Can't wait to see how Series 4 turns out!
I was struck by the regular rhythm of ups and downs in this series, going from laughter to tears and back again over and over again. I am also impressed that the quality of the story is being maintained into the third series, not an easy thing to manage, as these things often lag - this one certainly doesn't. They aren't afraid of a story or a negative outcome, here, and the good and the bad go hand in hand - very realistic, I think. I find the characters well-played and nuanced and they develop, which is important, in my view.
I adored the Edwardian vibe in the first series, enjoyed the second series, and this one has surged up again, almost a little unexpectedly. Absorbing enough that I watched the lot within 2 days...
