The original and unedited UK version of Seasons 1 and 2 of the hit show Downton Abbey in one limited-edition boxed set.Welcome to Downton Abbey, the splendid ancestral home of the Earl and Countess of Grantham (Hugh Bonneville and Elizabeth McGovern) and their daughters, who live there under the watchful eye of the Dowager Countess (Dame Maggie Smith). The household is a complicated community, with the servants below stairs as fiercely jealous of their ranks as anyone above. From the sinking of the Titanic to the First World War, the secure and ordered world of Downton is rocked as the lives of the inhabitants are shaped by romance, ambition, and heartbreak.
This boxed set is rich with extras. Fans will be captivated by the making-of featurette showing the details as originally envisioned by series creator Julian Fellowes (writer of Gosford Park and the TV series Titanic). Another feature examines the incredible attention to period authenticity paid to costumes, dialogue, and décor. Another short feature examines the many love stories unfolding--and given urgency--with World War I as the backdrop. And the transformation of the stately home into a humming wartime hospital is also fascinating. All in all, there are more than 15 hours of immersive entertainment in this five-disc set--best put on another pot of tea before you settle in. --A.T. Hurley

Product was just what I wanted. Lots of confusing reviews about PBS version, UK version, etc. I don't feel like I missed a single moment of film with this product.Published 16 days ago by Maria S.

|Downton Abbey with spanish subtitles||
Did any of you finally got DA with Spanish subtitles?
I went to mixup.com as suggested. Their DVD is zone 4 and I'm not sure I can play it in USA.

|Limited??? still no subtitles or captions||
Just got this from the lightning deal a few days ago. There is a very good English subtitle on every disc I've viewed (1-3) thus far. I agree another language or three wouldn't have hurt. Hope this helps.
