Upstairs Downstairs was dusted off from the BBC archives in 2010 and brought back to the UKs TV screens by popular demand. It is a continuation from the much-loved original series which ran from 1971 to 1975 and it is written and created by Heidi Thomas.
Like the original Upstairs Downstairs, the series is set in 165 Eaton Place, London. However, the year is now 1936, six years after the 1970s series ended.
Reprising her role as Rose Buck is popular actress Jean Marsh. The new programme shows how she has risen up the ranks from lady’s maid and is now a housekeeper of the newly-formed household of Sir Hallam (Ed Stoppard) and Lady Agnes Holland (Keeley Hawes).
The new Upstairs Downstairs was as made in-house by BBC Wales in conjunction with the US TV public broadcast network Masterpiece.
The series was aired in the UK over three successive nights and it was a considerable ratings hit which garnered viewing figures of well over eight million.
In 2011 the programme’s success was rewarded when it was nominated for six primetime Emmy awards.
Upstairs Downstairs has a stellar cast, with actresses (Eileen Atkins) and (Alex Kingston) introduced Upstairs as Maud, Lady Holland and Dr Blanche Mottershead.
Downstairs, (Art Malik) joined the cast as chauffeur Amanjit Singh.
However, after a great start to the period drama, it was confirmed by the BBC that Upstairs Downstairs would not be returning for a third series, a decision which will no doubt disappoint the programme’s legions of fans
