This DVD set is a real treat as it includes all 25 episodes from Series 1-3. There are seven episodes from the first series, eight each from the second and third, plus the 2011 Christmas special which was arguably the best single episode so far; it was certainly one of the most dramatic! The less impressive 2012 Christmas Special is also included to round off Season 3.

The three series so far have taken us from 1912, just after the sinking of the Titanic, up to 1920. The circumstances surrounding each series have been in contrast with each other. The first series ran up to the start of the First World War, and the one of the main thrusts of the story line was the matchmaking within the Crawley family and the various financial and social influences on the choice of a suitable partner.

The second series moves on to the war years, when Downton Abbey had been converted into a convalescent home for injured servicemen. The time setting is from the Battle of the Somme up to the end of the war. This background contributes to some very interesting scripts, and whilst some felt that it did not live up to the first series, personally I thought it was excellent, but different.

The Christmas special and the third series take place from late 1919 into 1920. The first features a very dramatic trial, and in the third series the household is far more back to the life of an aristocratic family as it was in the first series although the estate faces major challenges in the post war period and a need to embrace change if Downton is to survive. A major feature of the show is the interaction between the family and those who serve them `below stairs' and there are many strong performances amongst both groups.

Very nicely boxed DVD set for this excellent British series.
However, the downside is PBS Advertsement segments in your face.. Paid content should not include product advertising, infinte traileers are bad enough. In this case, when you launch the DVD you have to view long commercials for luxury products upfront. Really not aceptable. Otherwise, great sound and image.

We were expecting the complete season of Downton Abbey but got selected episodes. It is evident there were very significant episodes that were not included. That 'might' be acceptable 'if' it had been made clear in the product description. It created discontinuity and difficulty in understanding plot situations.

More happens in a single episode of this series than in an entire year of other regular TV programming. Character development is just amazing.

Why buy this from the USA, Go to amazon.co.uk and get it there and save lots of money! I ordered this series for 23.91 BPS = $37.73 USD including shipping. This holds true to lots of other series too, but you must have a multi-region DVD player to watch. You say I don't have a multi-region DVD player what now? I can help there too, go to [http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks]. There you will find out how to change most any DVD player to Multi-region, not every model is there but most all are.

Deceptive - one would think they are getting all episodes from seasons 1-3. This is not the case. It's like the horrific Reader's Digest abridged books series. If you want all episodes from seasons 1-3 look elsewhere. This is a waste of money IMHO.
