Probably not until next January, I am guessing. It shows earlier in the UK - in Sept? I want MORE Downton Abbey. I guess it is better to leave people wanting rather than to make them tired of it!

Did anyone get the DVD of season 3 yet? I got it the other day and have been rewatching the episodes that have already aired on PBS and there is a scene that was on PBS that isn't on the disc. It is the one where Isobel visits Ethel at her house and as she knocks on the door a man comes out. I am wondering if there are any other scenes cut out. There was a complaint about that on Amazon. I don't understand why they would do that. I did get the UK version from AmazonUK, but have not been able to watch it with VCL like others have been able to do.

Lynne, what does VCL stand for. We just bought Season 3 at Target - says Original UK edition, but we haven't watched any of it.

This may have something to do with editing.
The show in the UK is shown with commercials. Then it has to be re-editted for showing on PBS.

I have the show downloaded from iTunes and it is marked (UK version). As long as I get my Downton Abbey, I'm ok with it!

Linda, VCL is a video player that I downloaded. There were many people who have purchased the UK DVD's (region 2) and were able to watch them that way. I wasn't having any success doing that. I dug out an old laptop of my daughters and changed the region on it and will watch the DVD I purchased from AmazonUK on that. After you watch 4 dvd's the region changes permanently. The computer isn't used so I will keep it for Downton Abbey watching.

I just don't understand why PBS would show some scenes on TV and then cut them from the DVD. Reading some reviews last night many claim that season 1 was drastically edited and some story lines would flow better had they not. Oh well, I agree with you as long as I can watch a version I am happy.

I thought about the DVD for just about a minute. I look forward to Sunday night now. Even the husband loves it and we watch the same TV while it is on.

I just finished watching Season 1 and 2. Rick has watched from the beginning.
It is so good. Can't wait to start season 3! I am watching it on Demand (comcast).
