Downton Abbey Season 4 (3 BluRay Disc Set)

Downton Abbey Season 4 (3 BluRay Disc Set)

Pledge Level: $120

The sweeping Downton Abbey saga continues, beginning six months after the unexpected death of Matthew Crawley--heir to Downton Abbey, husband to Lady Mary (Dockery), and brand new father to a baby boy and successor--in a car accident. Although it is the 1920s, Britain still observes mourning rituals that are almost Victorian in their solemnity. 

These BluRay Discs feature subtitles in English (SDH)
