When the British series UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS returns to the U.S. Sunday on PBS' MASTERPIECE, only six years have passed since the day in 1930 when the last of the Bellamys and their servants vacated 165 Eaton Place, and yet Jean Marsh, who last starred as Rose 35 years ago, is still very much Rose. Marsh (pictured second from left) is the only original cast member on the new show, which has added Ed Stoppard (left), Keeley Hawes (second from right) and Eileen Atkins.

In the story, Rose finds herself back in London in 1936, running a small domestic-employment agency after having spent a few years away caring for a sick aunt.

  1. I loved watching Upstairs Downstairs in the mid-1970s when I was a college student! :-) Both Jean Marsh & Eileen Atkins are co-creators of the original series! :-)
