    Big fan of Downton, but Call the Midwife is my big fave. The Christmas special was a complete surprise treat to me & we really enjoyed it!

    We preferred Call the Midwife to Downton this christmas. At least it was cheerful! The story was really touching. I really hope that a new series comes on soon. I don't know where Downton is going storyline wise.

    When will it be broadcast in the US? Are you all just starting on season 3? Season 3 was pretty devastating too. I'm very paranoid not to mention what happens to spoil everyone's surprise, though ;)

    I watched season 3. It was good. My husband bought the DVDs from Amazon UK for Christmas.

    I, for sure, wouldn't spoil any of the upcoming events for people. Even though I had heard in the news what was going to happen on the Christmas episode it was still shocking to see. I think what makes Downton such a great show is not necessarily the plot itself, but the interaction between all the characters. That is why I don't mind if I come across a spoiler or two.

    DH got me the first 2 seasons on blu ray for christmas. It was a series people had been telling me was so good and that i would love.

    I had nothing to do on new years so I put a disk in and then spent the next 20 or so hours on the couch watching the whole thing.

    I can't belive how good this series is and can't wait until season 3 starts around here. I hope that we can get series 4 at the same time as the UK. Highly unlikely but a girl can dream.

    My DH and I just started watching this week. We got season 1 and 2 and will be taping 3. DH is out of town and it's killing me not to watch while he is gone.

    Does anyone have a link to watch the Season Three Christmas special online? I've been poking around the putlocker & sock share, but cannot find that episode & I'm dying to know what the sad shock is. The final episode of season three was bad enough, I can't imagine what else would have made the Christmas ep even sadder.

    I can't wait to see season 3!
    I watch it on the PBS app. The book "Below Stairs" (insiration for show) is a great read also. I wish it told more!

    Call the Midwife was a great show also. I want to read the book it's based on.

    Another to watch is called Land Girls. It's from the mid-1990s I believe. I borrowed it from my library, 3 seasons.

    I love BBC!! I would happily pay for access to the BBC. Dh is watching Whitechapel right now.

    We are watching Season 1 on Netflix right now! One more episode tonight. Is the only way to see Season 2 on DVD? I wish Netflix had it, I hate to start watching Season 3 before Season 2.

    Huge Downton Abbey fan and if my husband will ever let me have control of the TV I might see the first episode of season 3! I think the Christmas special from this year "accidentally" was deleted from our DVR. :(
