Wonderful Jewel in the Crown
This adaptation has managed to be as relevant now as it was almost 30 years ago, just as Upstairs Downstairs has. Good to see some familiar faces. Five stars.
Timeless and still fabulous
My absolutely favourite drama series ever. What a wonderful depiction of life in the British Raj and such great actors and actresses. So pleased to see it on iTunes.
