Fabulous

Absolutely fabulous, rivetting, good British humour, superb acting. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it, have ordered the next 2 seasons.

Best Brit TV Drama Series in years

Superb - acting, costumes, sets, all recreating the values and behaviour of England in the final 2 years before World War 1. The interaction between The Earl's family and the 'family' of their servants is brilliant. This is riveting viewing, witty, sensitive, sly, arrogant and heart wrenching, in turn.

Great period drama!

Downton Abbey

Excellent entertainment!

Downton Abbey - series 1

Fabulous - can't wait to get second series!

DOWNTOWN ABBEY

Delivered very quickly. This is a XMAS present.

Downton Abbey

I'm thoroughly enjoying the series - watching in my own time is an added bonus! Thanks Kalahari!

The most classy and elegant series in years

About the ups and downs of the Grantham estate and their servants. Set in 1912-1914 on an estate in Britian. I'll shortly say that each episode contains the most artfully created combination of drama and comedy. You get to know the characters quickly, and you love them with your heart. I cannot say which aspects are excellent, because they all are. I realize that I cannot describe it adequately, but I plead: don't take my word for it, buy Downton Abbey without thinking about it any longer, and then take your own word for it. Don't think 'this isn't my kind of thing'. Take the risk, you owe it to yourself.

obsessed

I'm obsessed with Downton Abbey. Period Drama's not usually my thing, but this is so well done. Script is witty, characters are well cast. Can't wait for series 3!
