"Great fun and marvelous television" --The New York Times
"One of the brightest gems ever to come over the ocean from the British" --The Washington PostUpstairs: the wealthy, aristocratic Bellamys. Downstairs: their loyal and lively servants. For nearly 30 years, they share a fashionable townhouse at 165 Eaton Place in London’s posh Belgravia neighborhood, surviving social change, political upheaval, scandals, and the horrors of the First World War.
The most popular and successful British drama series in television history, Upstairs, Downstairs won seven Emmy® Awards, a Golden Globe, and a Peabody. This epic saga of life and love in Edwardian England captivated viewers for five heart-tugging, humorous, and satisfying seasons. Seen by a billion people in over 40 countries, it’s beloved around the world.
The ensemble cast of top British actors includes Jean Marsh (Agatha Christie’s The Pale Horse), Pauline Collins (Shirley Valentine), David Langton (The Spoils of War), Gordon Jackson (The Professionals), Simon Williams (Sword of Honour), and Lesley-Anne Down (North and South).
Our family thinks Upstairs Downstairs is better than its look-alike Downton Abbey. Not quite so soap-operaish (is there such a word?) but

Wouldn't want anyone to go to their grave without seeing one of the best series, which holds up decade after decade. Thank you to Jean Marsh and her brilliance!Published 1 month ago by scutter

NPR commenting good or bad on the release would probably not affect a price change. It is also unusual for a price change that fast. Unless your few hours was before midnight last night and you came back to it in the morning. For the umpteenth time, Amazon's prices (like any legit retailer)... Read More

Amazon has nothing to do with subbies or captions. As I have said before, they SELL DVDs, they DO NOT MANUFACTURE them. If you are concerned about subtitles or captions, you should be making your statement to manufacturers. They may listen to you. Besides, Amazon does not read these postys.

She died of the spanish flu in Series 4, just as World War One came to a close. A tragic loss to the series, in my opinion. She was my favorite character.

Yes they are. In case nobody told you, legit retailers are only allowed to sell DVDs for their (and ONLY their) region. Your question is being asked on Amazon US, which means Region 1 only. Marketplace Sellers on the other hand are third parties who can sell anything they please. Moreover,... Read More
