I read that PBS cut scenes for the American viewing. I went on to Amazon and purchased both sets, uncut UK version.
Well, they cut the commercials...

Seriously, though. When the first season aired on Masterpiece, the seven episodes were re-edited to fit into four 90-minute slots. We didn't lose anything, but some scenes were rearranged.

For the second season, PBS is airing it without the commercials, and they combined the first two episodes into a single movie-length premiere.
