Everyone’s favorite sudsy British period drama is back and pulling all the punches. Weddings, births, deaths, legal battles, and sexual harassment abound in the third season of Downton Abbey. If, for whatever reason, you still have not started watching this show, grab the first two seasons before diving into this Blu-ray release, because this show is not going away any time soon (and it’s definitely worth all the buzz).
The season kicks off with the much-anticipated wedding of Lady Mary Crawley (Michelle Dockery) and Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens)—one of biggest on-again, off-again couples in pop culture right now. Of course, even with the big event fully under way, the couple still has a few misgivings. More drama occurs when Cora Crawley’s (Elizabeth McGovern) mother arrives for the festivities. Martha Levinson is played by Shirley MacLaine who goes head-to-head with Maggie Smith’s formidable Dowager Countess.
