The loves, happiness and secrets of three Edwardian Nannies
Berkeley Square is a warm-hearted family drama set in turn-of-the-century London, where three young girls come together as nannies and grow to be friends. Matty is a tough East End girl who has worked her way up the domestic ladder of London society's finest families. Spirited Hannah flees to London with her child after falling disastrously in love with the eldest son of a grand Yorkshire family. Generous, yet naive, farm-girl Lydia becomes a nanny in a forward-thinking family light years from her own. Over the course of time, the three young nannies become enmeshed in each other's lives as they manage through the unpredictable twists and turns of love, happiness and secrets in the posh world of Berkeley Square.

We did not see Upstairs, Downstairs. The jacket review for Berkeley Square compares the latter to Upstairs, Downstairs. We enjoyed Berekely Square immensely and accordingly purchased the Upstairs, Downstairs set.
Though not familiar with most of the cast members, Berkeley Square is brilliantly acted. The costuming is superb with a rich portrayal of Edwardian England and the class system that would end following the two world wars.
It has something of a Dickens feel to it as characters are woven into the plot, exiting and then reappearing. Some online reviewers have been critical of the script and directing. We enjoyed both and highly recommend it if one's tastes go to British period pieces.
Very much " Upstairs, Downstairs" feel to it. All the actors played their parts to a tee. You really get the feel of the era, how difficult life must have been, especially for women.
I thoroughly enjoyed it all and wish they had made another series, and anyone who buys it will feel the same.
