5.0 out of 5 stars Vary Entertaining Series of Georgian/Victorian Life, 12 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Upstairs Downstairs - The Complete Second Series [DVD] (DVD)
My mum used to watch this all the time when I was a kid, and back then I hated it. But now that I am somewhat older and my tastes have changed I decided to watch a few episodes of this on Cable TV. I was hooked and immediately purchased the first two series. I love history and the time period that the Upstairs Downstairs series covers is one of my favourite time periods.

The acting was superb, especially from Gordon Jackson as Mr Hudson, the butler. I loved the contrast between the formal "upstairs" and that of the "common" "downstairs", yet with Hudson trying to maintain a balance of the two. It was great seeing how the two different "worlds" lived yet integrated with one another; the one not being able to survive without the other.

This second series is as good as the first and we see a lot more of life outisde of 165 Eaton Place.

I can't wait to get the other 3 series.
