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.
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…
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…

So, I watched the first episode of series one with a degree of trepidation. It started off well enough, but with some obvious niggles. Whilst it is a delight to see the fabulous Jean Marsh reprising her role of Rose Buck, it is stretching credibility somewhat to expect the viewers to believe that she is merely 6 or so years older than when last seen in the final episode of the original programme. The reality is that over 30 years have passed between both programmes and, with the greatest of respect, Ms Marsh is no longer the youthful lady she was then. This is very apparent. Secondly - what the hell has happened to 165 Eaton Place?? This new set bears hardly any resemblance to the original, and this really rankles with me. Why bother making a new version if the central location has changed so much?
Getting onto the new cast and storylines - if you can keep thoughts of and comparisons with the original cast to one side, they're actually a rather absorbing and interesting bunch. They do take time to grow on you, but slowly sneak into your affections.
Overall, this is a good period drama, although it doesn't quite stand up to the original.
