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…

It's a shame that Upstairs Downstairs has been eclipsed by Downton Abbey - I would urge any Downton-lovers who didn't return for the latest instalment of Upstairs to give it a go on DVD: you are missing something rather marvellous. Series one of Downton was magnificent; but series two was under-powered and sometimes threatened to be a camp travesty of itself. Upstairs, on the other hand, has continued to improve and develop in wonderful and surprising ways as the series progressed.

The worlds of almost every character in Upstairs are beautifully drawn and complex, unlike those in Downton that too often are of the single note variety (Maggie Smith is arch - there is nothing left for her to do than raise an ironic eyebrow). In particular, Lady Persie (Claire Foy) and Mr Pritchard (Adrian Scarborough) are endlessly fascinating and never as straightforward as they appear on the surface. You meet a character such as archaeologist Dr Motteshead (Alex Kingston) and at first she seems every bit the stereotype of the intellectual 1930s lesbian; but then, as the series evolves, expectations are confounded through great writing and an excellent performance.

Upstairs handles its period detail and sense of time perfectly with none (well I didn't spot them) of the anachronisms that irked me so much in Downton. Moreover, it is really engaged with the history taking place as the drama unfolds - I can think of no other drama that has dealt so well with the mindset of Britain on the eve of war. Scenes such as the household watching the streetlights of London being turned off for the final time are deeply moving. Again, I can also think of no other TV costume drama that has been more beautifully designed, lit and shot. This is far more noticeable in series 2.

It suffered from unfair comparison to another Brit drama out at the time, Downton Abbey, and the major problem was just that it wasn't good enough to stand on its own. The acting and the dialogue was a little too weak, and somehow none of the characters made you care about them.

I really loved the first series and had to wait for the second one which never appeared on the french amazon. After a while I decided to buy it directly on the this amazon.uk and I was not disappointed. I really love it, Both series are short so the scenario is well constructed and all the episodes are equally catchy. It's a shame there is no third series to come. Hope this will help you for your purchase and I apologize if my English is not good(I understand it better than I speak it).

This is such a lovely series depicting life in a house which is very different to life at Downton Abbey. The characters are superb and the story lines are excellent. The final episode is one of the best season finale's I have ever seen; had me totally gripped!!!!! I am sooooooooooooo disappointed and cross that the BBC have decided not to produce a third series and show us how the house copes with WW2. This is such a mistake!!!!!
