More downstairs than upstairs, but an intriguing link to the TV series and a great overview of life in the not too distant past.,
This review is from: Upstairs Downstairs (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've quite enjoyed this series of recordings; re-introducing the key characters from the TV series (which I vaguely remember) and adding some new ones - who come and go, leaving us wondering who they were and how they affected life!
The family are there; Hudson is there, as is Mrs Bridges and Rose (originally played by Jeam Marsh, who reads this version!) ... and several new characters are introduced as the CDs continue.
It starts with the introduction of a new under parlour maid, whom Lady Marjorie christens Sarah - which leaves us wondering if it might be THE Sarah ... but I'm not going to give any secrets away. You'll have to listen to find out! As you listen on, more events remind you of characters and events in teh series ... but somehow it just didn't have me totally convinced. It may be that I don't remember the series fully, but I'm not sure!
However, it's a good recording to listen to and a great way to pass a long journey ... (or a long period of time spent waiting for teh AA to help you out when your car has broken down!)
