This is a well-acted and well-scripted spin-off that does real justice to its connection to possibly the best period drama to grace British television, Upstairs Downstairs. I found that, after intending to only watch one episode at a time, I was hooked and had to play the next one too.

It's a real shame that this wasn't recomissioned for a second run because, on the basis of every episode in this box-set, it certainly merited one.

Like a Curate's egg I found this series good in parts but nowhere near as enjoyable as Upstairs/Downstairs, of which it was a "spin off" and thus natural to compare the two. Although the principal leads are two fine character actors (John Alderton/Pauline Collins) they alone are not enough to carry a poorly thought out idea for a series. In U/D Thomas Watkins was a man with a dream to run his own motor garage but in T/S he seems to have forgotten that; more likely the writers found that they could not make that alone work for a full series. Without giving away too much of the plot Watkins trys his hand at magic, a school teacher, a shopkeeper and much else. Sarah turns out to be far more foul mouthed in this series than ever she was in U/D and I found this aspect disappointing too.
Both sets come as four episodes to a dvd and with U/D I found I was watching all four in an evening but it was difficult to see even one episode of T/S all the way through in one sitting. It just didn't hold my interest in the same way.
To sum up I found it a good idea and great actors let down by a poorly thought out script.

This is nothing like Upstairs Downstairs, so I think it's unfair to compare it to that show.

Having said that, the writers seem to have consciously decided to use adopt the "adventure of the week" format, resulting in a rather patchy and unfocussed show. I was never quite clear about the relationship between the two lead characters.

It's a shame the curcumstances of its production prevented a second series. It might have been interesting to see how it developed.

The only extras are two irrelevant daytime TV interviews with each of the Aldertons from the mid eighties that have nothing whatever to do with the show.

A must for early period british drama's, A good spin off for John Alderton @ Pauline Collins as Thomas @ Sarah , seeing how they cope with life after 165 Eaton Place, in Upstairs Downstairs, which was great too, Shows all the up's and down's they go through, won't tell you , you're have to watch it' but they end up back in uniform.
A nice cosy trip back in time ' A WONDERFUL SERIES,

Having seen fully the complete Upstairs, Downstairs Box Set it was a natural progression to want to see this. A little disappointing overall, however, good in the main with the wrong ending in my opinion!

Lovely to see the follow up of Thomas and Sarah after Upstairs Downstairs. Enjoyed it, especially as the main stars are two of my favourites.

I was delighted to find this DVD on the Amazon list. The reason being that my son,Tim,played one of the schoolboys in the Episode entitled Alma Mater. At the time that it was broadcast I had no video recorder & having only seen it the once I had very little recollection of his performance! Imagine the excitement I felt being able to see my little gingerhaired boy (who is now 45yrs old) acting along side John Alderton & Pauline Collins!
The series itself is delightful - the sort of stories that can be watched by the whole family from the Grandparents to the little ones.
On TV today there is very little entertainment that is not violent,sexual or concerned with people trying to outwit other contestants by being outrageous and cruel - no wonder there are so many disturbed & dangerous people out there!
Watch this gentle DVD and remember the days when people were courteous and kind to each other!!
