3.0 out of 5 stars So So
For anyone who did not see the original this version is acceptable, and it is good to see Jean Marsh again in the cast, but as the creator of the original version I wonder what she thinks of this one.
After watching this I searched for and found the original and am now very happy to have it. It was superb viewing and a much longer series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Upstairs and Downstairs, 14 Nov 2013

This review is from: Upstairs Downstairs - Complete Series 1 and 2 Box Set [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
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

This review is from: Upstairs Downstairs - Complete Series 1 and 2 Box Set [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars yesteryears, 27 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Upstairs Downstairs - Complete Series 1 and 2 Box Set [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
This series isn't quite up to the class of Downton Abbey,however if Downton Abbey had not have happened we would have nothing to compare Upstairs Downstairs against, as it is probably the 2nd best series portraying this era,and it is sad that the series was restricted to a total of 2 seasons.
