Re: Masterpiece Classic: Downton Abbey 2x01
Pretty girls in proper clothes make for a decent series.
Actually, I don't really watch it regularly, but what I have seen is OK. Maggie Smith is good in it. Mind you, I don't think it's a patch on Upstairs, Downstairs
. I really enjoyed its original ITV production, and the BBC mini-series updating of it a couple of Christmases ago. I think it's coming back for a full series later this year. Looking forward to that.
I thought they packed too much onto the Christmas episodes of upstairs downstairs.
The next series of upstairs downstairs starts February 19th, but because of Jean Marsh's stroke I've heard she is missing from a few eps.http://www.guardian.co.uk/tv-and-rad...y-heidi-thomas
