Upstairs Downstairs: Series 2, DVD


The second series of the BBC remake of the 1970s period drama charting the exploits of one middle-class family and their working-class servants.

While the threat of war makes diplomat Sir Hallam (Ed Stoppard)'s work at the Foreign Office all the more stressful, his relationship with his wife, Lady Agnes (Keeley Hawes), suffers.

When she gets acquainted with American businessman Casper Landry (Michael Landes), Hallam becomes jealous and is tempted by Agnes's sister, Lady Persie (Claire Foy), who has just returned from Germany where anti-Semitic violence has become rampant.

Meanwhile, new nursery maid Beryl (Laura Haddock) is hired and immediately attracts chauffeur Spargo (Neil Jackson); butler Pritchard (Adrian Scarborough)'s past comes back to haunt him; and the servants all learn to cope with the absence of Rose who is suffering from tuberculosis.

The episodes comprise: 'A Faraway Country About Which We Know Nothing', 'The Love That Pays the Price', 'A Perfect Specimen of Womanhood', 'All the Things You Are', 'The Last Waltz' and 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow'.
