Downton Abbey: Season 1

 (TV) (2010)

Downton Abbey: Season 1 Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Downton Abbey tells the story of a complicated community. The house has been home to the Crawley family for many generations, but it is also where their servants live, and plan, and dream, and they are as fiercely jealous of their rank as anyone. Some of them are loyal to the family and committed to Downton as a way of life, others are moving through, on the look out for betterment or love or just adventure. The difference is that they know so many of the secrets of the family, while the family know so few of theirs. But for all the passions that rage beneath the surface, this is a secure world, serene and ordered, and, at first glance, it seems it will last forever. Little do they know, family or staff, that the clouds of the conflict that will change everything are already gathering over their heads.

For more about Downton Abbey: Season 1 and the Downton Abbey: Season 1 Blu-ray release, see Downton Abbey: Season 1 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Maggie Smith, Dan Stevens, Michelle Dockery, Joanne Froggatt

Downton Abbey: Season 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Downton Abbey is presented on Blu-ray with an AVC encoded 1080i transfer in 1.78:1 and the results are for the most part spectacular, at least within the confines of series television. This is one of the lushest looking television series to come down the pike in quite a while, and the Blu-ray for the most part offers a sharp, extremely well detailed image that is almost entirely free of artifacting. Colors are gorgeously robust and well saturated, shadow detail is for the most part exceptional, and the image is wonderfully clear and precise. There is some minor crush in the very darkest interior scenes, as well as a couple of nighttime sequences, and once or twice some very minor aliasing crops up, but it's extremely transitory. What works best here is the eye popping production and costume design, which pops brilliantly on this Blu-ray presentation. The incredibly ornate ambience of Downton Abbey (really Highclere Castle) is caught in all its splendor and fine detail reveals even the smallest patterns on the opulent furnishings. Similarly the many different patterns and materials of the costumes, especially the aristocratic women, are fully on display and are amazing.


Downton Abbey: Season 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Downton Abbey is granted a lossless stereo DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track which suffices perfectly well for a dialogue based drama such as this is. While it could be argued that some of the busier sonic moments, especially those with the servants flying to and fro both below quarters and up in the Crawley's living space, could have benefited from a surround track, and that John Lunn's elegant and elegiac underscore might have been better represented with one, the fact is there's really not a whole lot to complain about here. As expected, the veddy correct British elocution of the Crawleys comes through exceedingly clearly on this DTS track, and while many of the servants have pretty thick lower class accents, they're all pretty easy to decipher, at least most of the time (the optional subtitles can help in this regard). Fidelity is excellent, and while there isn't much opportunity for huge dynamic range and certainly not much LFE, the overall track is wonderfully full and extremely well articulated.
