Upstairs, Downstairs

Downton Abbey is sooo 2011... Here at we're glued to the Beeb's latest remake of Upstairs, Downstairs.

Starring Ed Stoppard as Sir Hallam Holland and Keeley Hawes as Lady Agnes Holland, the period drama based on the original (pictured above), hasn't lost any of its charm. Filled with sharp-as-cut-crystal one-liners, sumptuous costumes and dramatic storylines, it's a must-watch. You may well remember the original, which aired in 1973 on ITV and followed the lives of the servants downstairs and the masters upstairs at 165 Eaton Place, London, during World War I. It starred Jean Marsh in the role of Rose, who is also involved in the Beeb's remake. We'd love to hear what you think of it!
