Downton Abbey: S6 Blu Ray Review

Downton Abbey: S6 Blu Ray Review

Rating: M
Released by Universal Home Ent

The last full final season of Downton Abbey is upon us and with it the expectation that the series will be closed off with both the style and finality that is needed.

As the world begins to change around them, there are signs that the Downton reign is coming to an end, and in many ways, this is reflected in the scripts which start to feel a little tired and going through the motions rather than providing the boost that's needed for the end.

But quite frankly, fans of the show won't care about the plot's machinations and weaker edges at times, as it heads towards the conclusion. Cost cutting, arguments over hospitals and a scene at a dinner table that's like something from Alien all figure in the mix and are all solidly executed.

Annoyingly this release doesn't include the final ever episode, the Christmas special (released as it was pre- screening) and so the sense of completion is much like the finale itself - anti climactic.
