Source: I purchased this set.
My husband and I are huge fans of Downton Abbey and we can't wait until January when Downton Abbey starts again.
I just bought the Original U.K. "Limited Edition" version of the first 3 seasons. This box set also includes the documentary "Secrets of Highclere Castle."
This is a wonderful set if you want to catch up on the series before Season 4 starts in January. We are thoroughly enjoying it. We are especially happy that this is the original U.K. edition, as some scenes were cut out of the American television showings.
The gorgeous costumes, the stunning settings, and the high drama between the denizens of Downton keep us riveted.
Of course, the series includes the marvelous Maggie Smith (The Dowager Countess). No other actor can deliver a put-down with such withering sarcasm, but still make you like her.
