PBS has announced the release of Downtown Abbey: Seasons 1, 2 & 3 Limited Edition Blu-ray. The limited edition Blu-ray set includes all three seasons in a 9-disc set and a bonus documentary on a separate disc.
Official Synopsis: Downton Abbey tells the story of a complicated community. The house has been home to the Crawley family for many generations, but it is also where their servants live, and plan, and dream, and they are as fiercely jealous of their rank as anyone. Some of them are loyal to the family and committed to Downton as a way of life, others are moving through, on the look out for betterment or love or just adventure. The difference is that they know so many of the secrets of the family, while the family know so few of theirs. But for all the passions that rage beneath the surface, this is a secure world, serene and ordered, and, at first glance, it seems it will last forever. Little do they know, family or staff, that the clouds of the conflict that will change everything are already gathering over their heads.
Created by Academy Award-winner Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park) and featuring an outstanding cast, Downton Abbey has captivated millions with the trials and tribulations of the Crawley family and their servants. In the U.S., 24 million viewers tuned in to the third season of the series, making it the highest-rated PBS drama of all time.
In addition to featuring more than three hours of previously released bonus content, including “Downton Abbey: The Making Of,” “Downton Abbey: Behind the Drama,” and more, the 9-disc limited edition box set includes a bonus disc: “Secrets of Highclere Castle.” This one-hour documentary steps inside the castle featured in Downton Abbey and offers fans a unique look behind the scenes.
