Product Description

One of the most loved television series of all time is brought back to life with a stellar cast and a story full of scandal, romance and intrigue set against a sweeping historical backdrop.

Series One
1936. The house at 165 Eaton Place has stood empty since the Bellamy family sold it six years earlier. Now the doors are finally flung open by new owners, diplomat Sir Hallam, his wife Lady Agnes, and, back from the Raj, Maud, Lady Holland, his mother. With the arrival of Agnes’s debutante sister, Lady Persie, the sumptuous home is ready to come to life.

And who better than Rose, the house’s former parlourmaid, to recruit the new staff? The new 'downstairs' family is as full of characters as its previous incarnation with the highly strung butler Mr Pritchard, cook Mrs Thackeray, chauffeur Harry Spargo and a vivacious and spirited young team.
Soon both the elegant upstairs world and the downstairs staff have built their own labyrinth of secrets, lies and scandal, and as they feel the tremors of royal and political upheaval and the ominous threat of war, the house reverberates to the familiar sounds of rumour, excitement and dread…

Series Two

Set in the year preceding World War Two, 165 Eaton Place reopens its doors and welcomes you back into the enthralling lives of its inhabitants, both upstairs and down. Now a well‐established and thriving household in the heart of London, life in Eaton Place has moved on; Lady Agnes and Sir Hallam’s family is complete with the addition of two small children and London has settled into an easy peace with the apparent aversion of war.
But with both upstairs and downstairs harbouring life‐changing secrets and the menace of war creeping ever closer, the smooth running of Eaton Place threatens to come crashing to a shattering halt. And as romance, heartbreak and intrigue engulf the household, its inhabitants discover that the real threat is much closer to home…

5.0 out of 5 stars Upstairs and Downstairs 14 Nov 2013
By K Allan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved it so much so that I have now ordered the complete earlier series. For those who enjoy BBC period drama it's a must.
I wrote the above before we watched the second series. The first disc is okay but the episodes in the last go from bad to worse so much so that we didn't bother to watch the final episode. Why did the writers feel the need to include so much smut?

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Series! 29 Sep 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Since I've seen Upstairs on television I've been in love with it! Lovely funny and entertaining characters, Wonderful costumes and the glamorous 1930's atmosphere really makes the whole show very unique. People keep comparing it to Downton (which I love as well) But it's a completely different kind of series story wise. Especially the second series is really good! Get it if you love Period dramas and 1930 music like I do! It's a shame the BBC cut the series!

Our regret is that we understand that this series will no longer be continued. Cannot imagine why such a decision has been mistakenly made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Downton Abbey
I was scotched to this series (I couldn't take to Downtown Abbey) maybe because it treats the period just before the World War II,
which is of great interest to me.
