Series 1: PBS Masterpiece broadcasts add on average 5 minutes of additional footage per episode not shown in the ITV broadcasts. The exception to this are the first two episodes of Series 1 which for PBS airing were edited together to form a single feature-length episode for a two-hour timeslot; the edited version removes several minutes of footage from these episodes (including the original closing moments of episode 1). The North American DVD/Blu-ray release of Series 1 is the ITV version and thus does not include the extra footage seen on PBS. Also, the ITV broadcasts/DVD release indicate episode numbers in the opening credits alongside episode titles; this is not shown on PBS. See more
