The Downton Abbey Collection Box Set features Series 1-5, the 2011 Christmas show, Journey To The Highlands (2012) and London Season.

Get comfy on the sofa and soak up the first 5 series, plus the specials, of the award-winning costume drama following the lives and loves of those above and below stairs in an English stately home.

In the first series, set before the outbreak of World War One, the Grantham family face a crisis when the heir to the Downton Abbey estate dies on the Titanic.

With his three daughters unable to inherit by law, Robert Crawley (Hugh Bonneville), the current Earl of Grantham, must marry off his eldest daughter 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.

In the second series, after the outbreak of WWI, Matthew (Dan Stevens) and Thomas (Rob James-Collier) are fighting in the Somme. Lady Sybil (Jessica Brown-Findlay) defies her aristocratic position and enlists in the Royal Army Nursing Corps and Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) puts on a brave face when Matthew arrives home on leave with his future wife, Lavinia Swire (Zoe Boyle).

In the third series, the war is finally over but Lord Grantham learns that the future of Downton is in grave jeopardy after some disastrous investments. Cora's thoroughly modern mother, Martha Levinson (Shirley MacLaine), also arrives to ruffle a few of the Dowager (Maggie Smith)'s feathers.

In the fourth series, it's 1922, and six months after a tragic car accident, Lady Mary is still trying to come to terms with her loss. Meanwhile, as mass unemployment, political upheaval and economic crisis threaten the social order of the day, the family and staff of Downton Abbey try to adjust to life in a changing world.

In the fifth series, it's 1924 and the family and staff try to adjust as Britain experiences political changes under the new Labour government and the estate's future is put into question. Meanwhile, Lady Mary starts to think about marriage again.
