Downton Abbey: Season 3

 (TV) (2012)

Downton Abbey: Season 3 Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

From the sinking of the Titanic to the end of the First World War, the secure and ordered world of the beloved estate is rocked as the lives of the inhabitants of Downton Abbey are shaped by intrigue, crisis and romance. Season one sets a lavish stage of beautiful scenery and architecture, and a class structure rigid yet just beginning to give way at the beginning of the 20th century, and of the Great War. Season two picks up two years later, in 1916, as the war rages on over Europe, and grand Downton Abbey has been converted into a convalescent hospital for wounded veterans of the brutal combat. In season 3 the Great War is over and a long-awaited engagement is on, but all is not tranquil at Downton Abbey as wrenching social changes, romantic intrigues, and personal crises grip the majestic English country estate.

For more about Downton Abbey: Season 3 and the Downton Abbey: Season 3 Blu-ray release, see Downton Abbey: Season 3 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Maggie Smith, Dan Stevens, Michelle Dockery, Joanne Froggatt
Directors: Brian Percival, Andy Goddard, Catherine Morshead

Downton Abbey: Season 3 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The AVC encoded image (1.78:1 aspect ratio) presentation for "Downton Abbey" is a bit of a disappointment, boasting an intermittently murky image with solidified black levels, which robs the frame of glorious costuming and set design details fans have come to adore. Dense hairstyles and distances are also thick, preventing a full survey of creative highlights. There's also an issue of ghosting/stuttering, which was a problem some (not all) viewers detected with the "Season 2" BD set, blurring quick movement, perhaps most evident on the first and last episodes. When characters are standing still, the image retains fine detail, with full light illumination offering satisfactory facial particulars, making the ravages of age and highlights of glamour easy to study. Colors also show some spirit, with an adequate read of primaries, though general shadow detail illness pulls most hues down a notch in vibrancy. Skintones are appropriately porcelain, and the crisp episodes are free of any damage.


Downton Abbey: Season 3 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The 2.0 DTS-HD MA audio mix retains a basic presence, blending scoring needs with dialogue exchanges, and while the balance isn't sophisticated, the simplicity fits the needs of the show. Voices sound crisp and purposeful, with the group dynamic managed without distortive overlap. Echo and intimacy are preserved, along with outdoor atmospherics. Music is supportive with clean instrumentation, maintaining reservation until dramatic emphasis requires an increase in intensity. There's no feel of immersion, but the essentials are cared for.
