Upstairs Downstairs Trailer

If you’re anything like us then you’ve been missing Downtown Abbey terribly over the last few weeks. If only someone would buy it for us on DVD… **hint** Nevertheless, anyone who thought they might have to struggle through this festive period without the crutch of a good period piece need worry no more. In Heidi Thomas’s reimagined Upstairs Downstairs, the solid and decent former Bellamy family lady’s maid Rose Buck (Jean Marsh reprising her role) returns to that remarkable townhouse in Belgravia to help its new occupants Sir Hallam and Lady Agnes Holland (Ed Stoppard and Keeley Hawes). Upstairs Downstairs starts on Boxing Day and runs until the 28th December on BBC1..
