For fans of the series – and there are many, who have made it one of the biggest hits PBS ever has shown – here’s a chance to own all of it (so far) in a limited-edition box set.

A major aspect of the third season is the addition of screen icon Shirley MacLaine as the not-shy mother of the Countess of Grantham (Elizabeth McGovern), but there’s also a major loss ... and keeping that secret kept proved a huge challenge after the relevant episode aired earlier in England.

 

Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville and Michelle Dockery are among the other continuing cast members. DVD extras: "making-of" documentaries. **** (Not rated: AS) (Also on Blu-ray) Buy “Downton Abbey: Seasons 1, 2 & 3” on DVD
