Contest: Downton Abbey, Seasons 1 and 2

posted by Nell Minow

I’m thrilled to have this very special limited edition release to give away to one lucky fan.  Downton Abbey Seasons 1 and 2 will be released on Oct 2.  While we wait until January for Season 3 (now showing in the UK), you can enjoy Seasons 1 and 2, as the Earl and Countess of Grantham and their three beautiful and headstrong (and impeccably dressed) daughters try to find a way to keep their home despite the laws that require inheritance only by the male relatives.  Oscar-winner Shirley MacLaine joins the cast for the third season as the mother of the American-born Lady Grantham played by Elizabeth McGovern.

To enter the contest, send me an email at with Downton in the subject line and tell me your favorite character in the series.  Don’t forget your address (US addresses only)!  I will pick a winner at random on October 2.  Good luck!
