    Such a great show. Sad that the next one will be the last season.

    Maybe now I will be able to find the DVD and buy it! My husband is in charge of the remote so we never get to that channel!

    Mr stitchnripper doesn't watch so I send him out of the room. Very satisfying episode for me.

    Jammie to 7 - Are you aware that you can go to the pbs website and watch? I watch many of my tv programs through my ipad at a time convenient for me.

    I watched the last episode twice. It was really wonderful. I got tears in my eyes a few times during it with the sweet things that went on and were said in this episode. Looking forward to next season. Sure will be a L O N G time to wait!!

    Sometime last season, they were having a pledge break, and offered the DVD's for all the seasons, including season 5, before it even came out. I know you can buy them. And like someone else said, you can watch on the internet.

    I ordered the Season 5 series back in August on Amazon and got a even lower price by the time it came out in early February. I haven't gone back to watch it again since I've been keeping up with it. Yes, its sad we have to wait till next January for the next season and I read its the last season too!!!!!! Oh shucky darn and I like this series too. Next series leads a new twist with possible marriage to the head housekeeper and butler characters. Thomas has been forgiven for being such a s**t with his last trick on that nasty stuckup butler. Sure wish they'd give it up on the Bates, they seem like such a loving couple but it shows when you love someone that much you'll do anything to try to save them. They don't walk away from their marriage just because of trouble. Mary on the other hand I now find is such a snob though she's no angel as we've seen in previous seasons. Anyway, I have the entire series in DVD and will go back and watch it all sometime this summer for kicks.

    Thanks to you all for getting me interested in this series sometime last year. It was worth it.

    Yes, I know that it takes hours and maybe days to set up for filming (or whatever they do now), but January is a long time to wait -- I enjoyed the episode, but it seems that they are rushing through some plot lines to resolve them -- hope there are other Masterpiece Theaters to watch in the meantime

    OK, do the math. They shoot hundreds of hours with counting all the retakes and errors. They produce 10 hours of actual TV. 10 episodes is the norm for British TV. That is what, 3 or 4 movies that usually take at least 2 to 4 months to shoot. If the story line goes any further in time, we will lose most of the characters that are +50. I don't want to see Robert or Violet die.

    We have Mr Selfridge to look forward to starting next week with the repeat of the first season.

    All I am saying about the last episode is........

    Mr. Selfridge and The Paradise are also good English series on PBS.

    I am not so sure that the next season will be the last as yesterday I heard on the news that Maggie Smith is leaving the show after the one starting next January - she said that her character has to be well over 100 years old in "Downton" time! I agree that their season is much too short and next January is a long ways off!

    I'm so addicted to Downton Abbey, I hate the idea it will be going away. However, they are clearly making plans for the downstairs people to have lives outside the house. Eventually, these big houses didn't have help like that anymore, so it's inevitable. If you'd like to get into more info on the series, go to this site. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/downtonabbey/
    I also love Grantchester and hope it will go on next year. Also, Mr. Selfridge, Call the Midwife, and Bletchley Park. If only some of our American networks could produce this quality of entertainment instead of the "reality show" garbage or contstant gruesome murder stuff.
