The first four seasons, plus two Christmas specials, of the ITV costume drama following the lives and loves of those above and below stairs in an English stately home.
In season 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, 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 season two, after the outbreak of WWI, Matthew and Thomas are off fighting at the Somme, while both Lord Grantham and William feel frustrated at being barred from taking part in the war. Meanwhile, Lady Sybil defies her aristocratic position and enlists in the Royal Army Nursing Corps and Lady Mary puts on a brave face when Matthew arrives home on leave with his future wife, Lavinia Swire, in tow.
In season 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's fortune. With the family beginning to gather for the wedding celebrations, a grand entrance by Cora's thoroughly modern mother, Martha Levinson, threatens to ruffle a few of the Dowager's feathers.
Downton Abbey returns to DVD for a fourth season and finds Lady Mary mourning her husband Matthew, who had just visited his wife and new baby George in hospital and was returning to see his family when his car overturned killing the heir to Downton. Will Mary find happiness again in the new series of Downton Abbey?
