Series Info

The intertwining lives of the wealthy Bellamy family and its servants in Edwardian England unfold in several editions of this 1970s series, perhaps the most popular and praised to ever air on PBS's `Masterpiece Theatre.' Created by Jean Marsh (who won an Outstanding Actress Emmy as the downstairs maid Rose) and Eileen Atkins, the series spans the tumultuous first decades of the 20th century and the shifting fortunes of complex and colorful characters, some more privileged than others.

Critics Consensus: An update of the classic series, this edition of Upstairs, Downstairs isn't quite as riotous as the original, but it still outshines most of its contemporaries.
