Please be aware there are spoilers on forthcoming storylines in my review,so please don't read on if you don't want to know future storylines on further DVD releases.
Upstairs Downstairs" returned for a 3rd series but there were a lot of changes to the cast as Pauline Collins,John Alderton,(Sarah and Thomas)Nicola Paget(Elizabeth Bellamy)had all left the cast although several years later,Pauline Collins and John Alderton had their own spinoff series,"Thomas and Sarah".
The biggest blow to the series was Rachel Gurney(Lady Marjorie Bellamy)deciding to move on and Lady Marjorie is setting of on a cruise to New York in the opening episode "Miss Forrest",when right at the end of the episode,Richard Bellamy decides to cable gram his wife and we learn she is sailing on the "Titanic"!
I can remember watching the reruns in the 80s and being totally shocked at this revelation and the closing shot on Lady Marjorie's photograph is very effective.
Rachel Gurney decided she'd made a mistake but it was too late to change the scripts,so Lady Marjorie goes down with "The Titanic" but her maid,Roberts(Patsy Smart)survives and in the next episode "A House Divided" ,she tells of Lady Marjorie helping a little girl look for her mother on the deck of "The Titanic" and never seeing her again.
Meg Wyn Owen(Hazel Forrest/Bellamy) becomes the new lady of the house when she marries James(Simon Williams)and the staff eventually accept her even though she's only middle class!

This was a very enjoyable series with the poignancy of the Titanic sinking. It was inevitable that such a momentous event in world history would have to touch the Bellamy household in some way. At the end of the first episode of "Miss Forrest" where the end music cuts away to show a photo of Lady Margery gives one the sense of feeling that we will not see her again.

Meg Wynn Owen (Hazel) joins the cast and we see the hostility of Hudson who with his sense of proprietory and sensing an imbalance in the order of things makes his feelings clear. However, with Hazel managing to defuse a tragic situation over Lady Margery's jewellery, she begins to slowly win over the staff and ends up with Rose becoming devoted to her.

The show highlights how Rose nearly goes to Australia over her whirlwind romance with Gregory but how she changes her mind over it all after his spiteful friend manages to spoil things for her.

We first meet Georgina Worsley and Daisy who become fast friends and get embroiled in their Christmas Day escapade when Georgina persuades Daisy to visit Hoxton and also raid the larder.

The winds of war approach Europe and in the final episode, we see the staff off on a holiday to Herne Bay and it somehow manages to capture perfectly that patriotic fervour that the public were all caught up in right at the outbreak of war.

The very final part of the episode we hear fireworks and church bells ringing out at the outbreak of war in August 1914 and it is hard to believe that such naivety could exist but then no-one really knew what lay in store; particularly as Georgina and her then boyfriend went to a "War Party" at the Ritz. Could such a thing happen today?

The acting is once again strong with the stalwart cast members coming through and cementing their places in the hearts of the viewers.

I remember (just about) when Upstairs Downstairs was originally shown, but I was too young to appreciate it and remember the storylines. ITV3 began showing repeats and are now in the middle of the third series - this means sadly, that the previous reviewer has spoiled a plot line for me as I am watching the episodes in order. The previous reviewer gives away a plot in series four (without giving a spoiler warning), so if you haven't watched up to this point yet, avoid reading too far in this person's review. Watching the repeats made me want to buy all the discs of the series and watch all the hours of this wonderful programme again, as I knew it would not be money wasted. This is a series that even makes me get up early on Sunday mornings instead of having a lie in! It is that good.

The cast are all faultless and the contrast between what life was like for people such as the Bellamy family and the servants is very evocatively portrayed. If one didn't appreciate modern life before watching this series, one certainly would afterwards. A true classic. Classic is an overused word, but an entirely proper one to describe this series.

Arguably the greatest TV show ever. Extremely moving, poignant, amusing and even exciting. The acting and attention to detail are a hard lesson to the ludicrous Downton Abbey. Given the recent marking of WW1 I can't think of a better tribute.

I enjoyed all five series of up/down as I call it. Social History as it was. I think it should be shown in schools to teach history in a more human context and not just textbooks fact and figures. I feel I understand my Grandmother better knowing what it was like as she was growing up, from the suffregette movement to the war and rationing etc. Excellent series.
The extras were a bit hit and miss, they hadn't read the scripts for the voice overs had they? But interesting to see them as they are now.
