Editorial Reviews

The Great War is over and a long-awaited engagement is on, but all is not tranquil at Downton Abbey as wrenching social changes, romantic intrigues, and personal crises grip the majestic English country estate for a third thrilling season. As other great houses are crippled psychologically and financially in the wake of World War I, Robert, Earl of Grantham, sticks to his duty to maintain Downton more firmly than ever. But in this changing landscape nothing is assured, and could it be that even the war-weary Crawleys must fight a new battle to safeguard their beloved Downton?

The returning cast includes Hugh Bonneville, Dame Maggie Smith, Elizabeth McGovern, Dan Stevens, Michelle Dockery, Jim Carter, Penelope Wilton, Joanne Froggatt, Brendan Coyle and a host of others, joined by Shirley MacLaine, who plays Martha Levinson, the very American mother of Cora, Countess of Grantham. Written and created by Julian Fellowes, Downton Abbey, Season 3 is a Carnival Films and Masterpiece co-production, in association with NBCUniversal.

Includes the Downton Abbey Season 3 finale, "A Journey to the Highlands."

This is NOT my genre. I resisted watching this series despite constant begging from multiple family members and friends. Having the week off around Christmas, I thought... what the heck. I have Amazon Prime, so watching the series was free!

Let me tell you... I watched TWO SEASONS IN THREE DAYS and I am suffering from major withdrawl today! This series sort of treads water for the first two episodes but by number 3 it dives deep and remains there. I was a terrible parent for the last three days while I hid myself in my bedroom with my kindle fire HD and watched this compulsively. WOW. LOVE IT.

Format: DVD
The much anticipated Downton Abbey Series 3 starts in Spring 1920, carrying on from the superb Christmas Special which was set over the 1919/20 holiday period. The first episode picks up with Lady Mary and Matthew Crawley at last about to get hitched, but as usual there is quite a lot going on at Downton both above and below stairs and you just know that nothing is going to go smoothly.

Shirley Maclaine makes her appearance as Martha Levinson, Lady Grantham's American mother. As usual, Violet, played by Maggie Smith manages to set the scene with some rather pithy comments. Martha has no time for the stuffy English and their traditions and is not slow to voice her opinion. Clearly she was introduced as a foil to Maggie Smith and the interplay between the two does work very well as one suspected it would. Violet seems to manage to continue to dominate any scene she is in.

There are plenty of dramatic moments in the new series, as life on the Downton estate returns to more as it was shown in the first series, before the First World War when it served as a convalescent home for injured servicemen. However, there are new challenges for Downton in the post war period. The interaction between the family and those that serve them `below stairs' continues to be a rich source of story lines for the script writers and is a major contribution to the success of the show.

Downton Abbey is the most successful costume drama from British TV since Brideshead Revisited some thirty years ago - and this is quite an accolade as they produce a lot of this sort of drama in the UK. Regular viewers of Downton will have been holding their breath wondering whether Series 3 could possibly keep up the very high standards of the previous episodes.

The English certainly have a way with words. They can insult you and you still feel like you are being respected! I was drawn into the drama, the characters and the acting. The dynamic between the "upper" and "lower" parts of the house makes for a very interesting series with many different storylines. All of this with no vulgar language and the absence of either "in-your-face" sex or sexual sugestiveness make it an extremely worthwhile watch. If only American TV would take notice.

The US edition of DA Season 3 (original UK edition) is 3 disks, 526 minutes which includes in addition to the 9 episodes the 2012 Christmas in the Highlands as well as interview with Shirley MacLaine and some other behind the scenes specials. Amazon offers the best price (PBS offers $39.99), an even better deal if free shipping. I can't wait until this arrives the end of January! After football season this will keep us occupied for some time! Just thought I would share this info.

I apologise that I am not reviewing the DVD itself; its quality, extras and price etc., but the content of the show. I am sure that the quality of production for the series 3 DVD will be just as good as the previous ones, just make sure you purchase the unedited version.
Downton series 3 kicks off in splendid style, though I am a bit confused about the time line. Sybil is expecting and barely "showing" and we are told this is almost 6 months on from the Christmas special, in which we were told she was expecting. The early storyline with Edith is also a major inconsistency for me, but I cannot say why without giving things away. Apart from these niggles, this series is going to be about change. The world from top to bottom changed after WW1 and this series is dealing with those issues. I will not tell what's going on, but there are many changes coming for both upstairs and downstairs at Downton. Shirley Maclaine is terrific with the whole cast, but provides a perfect foil for Maggie Smith and the whole show is worth watching just for those two, well they have the best lines anyway. I only wish she was in it for more than the first 2 episodes. The sets, the costumes, the cars, the house are all wonderful and show such attention to detail. If you're a fan of Downton you will love series 3. (and it has been announced there will be a series 4!)

I realize that my lower rating of Season 3 will not be popular. First, let me say that I thoroughly enjoyed the entire first two seasons of Downton Abbey. The story lines, scenery, and acting were all brilliant. Season 3 was wonderful as well until you hit the very end of the finale, the "A Journey to the Highlands" episode.

** SPOILER ALERT ** When Matthew is killed in a car wreck on the way back from seeing his new born son the show just seemed to plunge too deep into darkness. Let's review: Cybil dies after childbirth; Lord and Lady Grantham's marriage is strained greatly as Lady Grantham blames Cybil's death in part on Lord Grantham's decision; much of the season has poor Bates in prison so Anna and Bates are apart; Tom struggles with Cybil's death; Lady Edith is interested in a married man, a man that is married to a women in an insane asylum so for some reason he is unable to get a divorce; when we meet Shrimpee (sp) we find that he is in a miserable marriage; then Lady Mary and Matthew happily great their new born son, only to have Matthew get killed in a car wreck shortly after his son's birth. My point is that Downton Abbey seemed to lose much of its joy during season 3.

I hope season 4 will bring back some glimmer of joy to Downton Abbey.

Is this uncut? Or is it like PBS's first season of DT?
I apologize for posting here as I've posted elsewhere as well but I have noticed a huge controversy with the Downton Abbey Season 3 disks.

The menu shows up after all the ads and theme music. If yours does not show up at that time, then it will definately show up after viewing the first episode in this series. BTW, it is true that this U.K. version that amazon is selling is missing scenes. It is different than the Series 3 shown... Read More

Episode 6 Season 3. PBS vs DVDs
Can someone tell me, are you watching this PBS in England/UK? Our PBS is sowing Season 3. I did not know there was a 4,5, and 6 season out there. Do you know when season 4 is being release to U.S. ?
