The first three series, plus the Christmas special, of the ITV costume drama following the lives and loves of those above and below stairs in an English stately home.
In series one, set before the outbreak of World War One, the Grantham family, long time custodians of Downton Abbey, face a crisis when the heir to the estate dies on the Titanic. With his three daughters unable to inherit by law, Robert Crawley (Hugh Bonneville), the current Earl of Grantham, must try and marry his eldest daughter off in order to obtain an heir. Meanwhile, the family's determination to cling to class and rank is mirrored in a number of growing rivalries between the servants which threaten to undermine the smooth running of the house.
In series two, after the outbreak of WWI, Matthew (Dan Stevens) and Thomas (Rob James-Collier) are off fighting at the Somme, while both Lord Grantham and William (Thomas Howes) feel frustrated at being barred from taking part in the war. Meanwhile, Lady Sybil (Jessica Brown-Findlay) defies her aristocratic position and enlists in the Royal Army Nursing Corps and Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) puts on a brave face when Matthew arrives home on leave with his future wife, Lavinia Swire (Zoe Boyle), in tow.
In series three, with the war 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 and Matthew, Lord Grantham 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.

This is a first class drama about life in the 1900
Downton Abbey - Series 1-3 and Christmas Special is a really good box set to watch.
I'm a huge fan of the series and I had it delivered straight from England because I cannot wait for the DVD coming out in Germany... I'm already waiting for the 4th series and will order that one from here too. Downton Abbey reminds me a little of "The house on Eaton Place" but in my opinion the characters from Downton are much more lovable, fresher and not as stiff and dusty as the others... I discovered the series only because I'm also a huge fan of Sherlock the series (every Sherlock ever written or shown on TV in fact) and by browsing the internet I stumbled over it and since I'm also a Jane Austen fan I knew this was right up my street and I had to have it. And it did not fail me - I'm a real addict now... It is a killer that delivery from GB to Germany takes 15 days but much better than wait for 6 months for the German DVD. Also there are much better prices here... Highly recommend it!
