Editorial Reviews

“Sumptuous” —Los Angeles Times

Two glamorous sisters make their mark on 1920s fashion.

Changing times, cutthroat competition, and romance flavor the dramatic conclusion of this award-winning series. As the Roaring Twenties come to a close, the market for haute couture is shrinking. For the House of Eliott to survive, Bea (Stella Gonet, Nicholas Nickleby) and Evie (Louise Lombard, CSI) must accept that ready-to-wear is fashion’s future. But can these pioneering female executives expand their designs and still maintain the high standards of their couture line? Can they be successful in business and love? And what will the changes mean for the women they employ, including a new apprentice designer with questionable loyalties? Created by Jean Marsh and Eileen Atkins (Upstairs, Downstairs) and seen on A&E, PBS, and BBC America. Winner of top awards for costume design, including an Emmy® and a BAFTA.

Now with SDH subtitles.

Previously released on DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the Modern Woman July 26, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
On viewing Series 3, I was struck by how well the producers targeted all three series to the late 20th-century-middle-class-working-woman-viewer. The House of Elliott is all about work problems: Establishing a career with insufficient formal credentials, working in a man's world, finding out who you can trust in business, working with people you dislike who are nonetheless valuable contributors to the business, supervising people who dislike each other, being hit on by male coworkers and business associates, juggling your demanding career with the often conflicting demands of a husband's or boyfriend's, juggling motherhood and work, and dealing creatively with work emergencies. In Series 3, lower-class working conditions, and socialism as a potential solution, are major new themes.

There is also more emphasis on the demands of motherhood (Bea and Tilly have babies) and on previously minor characters, especially on the home lives of House of Elliott employees. The pace is frenetic compared to the first two series, with lots of multiple plot lines and quick shifts back and forth between them, unnecessarily dramatic camera angles, dropped situations, and overall too much going on. All the characters make major life and in some cases personality shifts. Tilly becomes clinically depressed. Bea's new boyfriend Daniel rapidly evolves from an arrogant, callous, resentful, self-centered, exploitative jerk (he's even a gigolo) to a sensitive, caring guy who makes major sacrifices for Evie. Evie's rejected boyfriend Miles apparently turns from being a sweet, caring, sensitive, generous guy to a shark trying to take over the House of Elliott. Is this really a science fiction series where their brains got swapped in the night?

Every single one of the plots ends up as a cliffhanger.

5.0 out of 5 stars House of Eliott - Series Three September 5, 2006
Format:DVD
This is a beautiful series and I would continue to buy any sequels that come out. It's worth owning just to look at all of the beautiful costumes and is a must for anyone who loves fashion. Stella Gonet and Louise Lombard are every bit as gorgeous, charming and utterly feminine as they were in series one and two. What a wonderful escape to watch these two lovely sisters evolve and grow in their respective lives. Contary to what I read in some of the other reviews, I had no sound problems at all with the set that I bought and considered both sound and visuals to be first rate. At the conclusion, matters are left unresolved and I don't think there is a series four. But there is a book and a book-on-tape (narrated by Stella Gonet who played Bea) entitled "A House at War" by Elizabeth O'Leary. There are some inconsistencies in it, but it is worth reading or listening to and it brings a sense of closure to "The House of Eliott."

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but leaves you hanging July 19, 2006
Format:DVD
I will assume anyone interested in this series of The House of Eliott has seen the other two. If you haven't, skip this for now and watch the first two series. You won't know anything about the characters or their lives if you don't.

OK, since you've seen the first two, I'll say that in this one, the Eliotts encounter more trouble with double-dealing men (and a woman this time) as they enter the ready-to wear market,Evie falls in love (again) but at least this time the man is suitable, not married, and a good guy, Bea and Jack get back together (and Bea has a baby), Jack (improbably) enters politics, and Tillie has problems with her pregancy.

Actually, the series is quite good, with people you care about, and really gorgeous fashions. My main problem is that this series has only 10 (not 12) episodes, and ends with major cliffhangers and unresolved plot points galore. I understand that the series wasn't renewed, and this may have been a ploy to get it renewed (fans couldn't let that much remain hanging, could they?), but it didn't work. So enjoy, but be warned, there is no ending! (At least the first two series had something resembling an ending; this one doesn't.)

In response to a previous reviewer, I should also state that I had no trouble at all with the sound (in fact, I had to put the volume down).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fabulous Finish! June 10, 2006
Format:DVD
When this series popped up under "my recommendations" on my Amazon.com home page, I nearly fell out of my chair. I taped every episode of the series when it aired on A & E 15 years ago (hard to believe) when I was in Junior High! Being unable to find the series in its entirety, I contacted the BBC in London for information on whether it was ever expected to be released as a box set, but received word that there were no plans to release it. So I resorted to buying a DVD dubber and transfering all of the episodes to DVD myself. Kudos to Amazon.com for bringing the remaing episodes of this wonderful series to everyone as soon as it is released! Even though I have all of the episodes, I have purchased all 3 series and am excited about the prospect of viewing the episodes without all of those cheesy commercials that I taped with the episodes.

This series is just fun to watch. The costumes and sets are beautiful, and the actors perfectly inhabit their roles until they become as familiar as friends. Definitely a favorite that I will continue to enjoy for years to come.
