Good news no matter what side of the pond you find yourself on as we approach the holiday season. No, not talking about the upcoming Doctor Who “A Christmas Carol” special. While I am waiting for that Steven Moffat gem, I’m really looking forward to something much more classic. Television’s most famous address, 165 Eaton Place, opens its doors again on Boxing Day in the UK on BBC and comes to America beginning Sunday, April 10, 2011 when Upstairs/Downstairs returns as part of PBS’ Masterpiece series 41st anniversary season.
The new 3-part special stars Keeley Hawes (Spooks, Ashes to Ashes), Jean Marsh and Dame Eileen Atkins. Look for it east of the Atlantic on Boxing Day in the UK and west of the Atlantic beginning in April 2011 on PBS. Wherever you are, make those plans for your Upstairs/Downstairs watching party now. All the cool kids are doing it.
