Fabulously rich and rare
This is a brilliant production. Exquisite in its attention to detail, which was a hallmark of the original series. I always was intrigued by the “Bellamy Place” its lavish interiors changing ever so tastefully as the decades progressed. It only heightening the tragedy of the Bellamy family's fate to see the property stripped and abandomed in the last episode all those years ago. Gladly “165 Eaton Place ” is treated almost as if it were another cast member. The new sets are familiar but much more grand in scale. Early on in the episode the house is restored to its glamorous self, ready to host more cocktail parties and sumptuous dinner parties. The one tread that links the old story with the new is Rose. Fabulous Rose the memories she could told of her times at Eaton Place. As Rose confesses she worked for the Bellamys' for 40 years in service. Well the woman's entitled to have gained some character lines she'd be in her 50's by the mid 1930's which is where the story picks up. While Rose (Jean Marsh) wins hearts all over again with her sensitive nature and patient persistence. Eileen Aitken as Lady Maud seems to have some of the best lines and scenes in the show. She's rich and rare and delightfully honest. There is a royal connection that I hope will make for interesting plot development. I can't wait for more Upstairs Downstairs, to get to know a new set of of characters their strengths their weaknesses and what fate has in store for this next generation living at 165 Eaton Place Belgravia.
Great show......an enjoyable follow-up to 'first' Upstairs Downstairs.
Didn't think I would like this show but episode 2 I caught myself totally engrossed in the storyline and characters! Doesn't happen often, great show, looking forward to it developing further. :)
