Set in 1924, the fifth series sees the return of our much loved characters in the sumptuous setting of Downton Abbey. As they face new challenges, the Crawley family and the servants who work for them remain inseparably interlinked. A new Labour government heralds changes that are being felt throughout the land, and life at Downton is not untouched. Robert, Mary and Branson together must navigate these shifting sands to ensure the future of the estate for generations to come.
As Branson finds himself playing a more crucial role at Downton than ever before, he can’t help questioning his place in this world. Mary is finally coming to accept that she would like to marry again, but will she ever be able to find the same happiness that she had with Matthew? Meanwhile with still no news of her beloved Gregson, Edith suffers under the burden of her terrible secret. Downstairs, the servants are starting to consider what effect social changes may have on their working lives.
While Daisy’s mind is opened to new possibilities, Mrs Patmore views such new and uncertain paths with trepidation. Anna and Bates have weathered many storms and are finally starting to plan their future. But with so much painful history, will they ever be able to completely move on, or will past secrets once again threaten their chance of ever finding happiness?

I've watched Downton Abbey since the beginning, and when the season ended, I found myself on the internet trying to find out when the next season would start. When I found out how long it would take before the second season would broadcast in the United States (US);I attempted to join whatever United Kingdom (UK) membership I needed to, just to gain access to watch the second season at the same time it aired in the UK, but without success. At this point, I was completely hooked on the series; and once again found myself on the internet, but this time, searching for sites where I could purchase the upcoming season before it aired in the US, and happened upon The Hut website, Downton Abbey, is by far, the best anticipated series that I care to watch. I ordered the second season from The Hut, but when I tried to watch the DVD, I learned I needed a DVD player with a different region code, so I purchased a DVD player that would interface with all regions. Since then, I've purchased every season two months prior to the series airing in the US. I watch the entire season in one day (a treat for myself), because I know I won't be disappointed. I've watched season five already, and was once again wanting the six season. But there is a bonus for me, the "Christmas" episode for season five, which is not included in season five, or any season, unless I wait to purchase the entire season when it first airs in the US. Since this is a treat for myself, I can stand the wait for the Christmas episodes. Downton Abbey is worth the wait and I'm glad I'm able to purchase the series prior to the release date in the US, thanks to The Hut.
