I loved the first three series of DA, but I must confess I was a little bit disappointed with season 4. I still was not over the fact that Matthew had died and I really disliked the new suitors for Mary. Also other storylines felt to be a little bit over the top. Too many people, too many silly things and not enough coherence.
I did want to see the fifth season, because I hoped it would be better and you know what? I think it is. I love Lady Mary and I am curious to see how things will go for her. Edith's storyline is sad, and I hope for a happy (happier) ending for her, since not much has gone her way so far.
Perhaps Mr. Gregson will come back from wherever he has been?

I am looking forward to seeing the Russian refugees (I love a little bit of Russian history mixed in, as you can imagine) and I also like to see Virginia Woolf making an appearance.

I have already ordered a copy of the DVD, that will be available next month, and I think I will treat myself to a DA-marathon this Christmas-holiday.
