The BBC revived this drama over Christmas with a new cast and a new storyline, and I thought I would watch out of curiosity if nothing else.
Another period drama which has been shown this weekend is Downton Abbey. I had wanted to watch this the first time it had been shown but somehow missed it. The seven episodes were repeated over Saturday, Sunday and Monday and I thoroughly enjoyed watching. It's all set to return to our screens again in Autumn.
It's reported that Downton Abbey won hands down in the ratings war. I hope the BBC will recommission another series of Upstairs Downstairs in 2011 and not let this put them off, as I for one will enjoy watching both of these wonderful series.
