|Upstairs Downstairs, on the stairs!|
|Upstairs Downstairs-Sir Hallam and Lady Agnes in their evening dress|
In this episode, Sir Hallam (Ed Stoppard) and Lady Agnes Holland (Keeley Hawes) move into 165 Eaton Place and hire former parlor maid Rose (Jean Marsh) to assemble a staff. The servants are soon put to the test during a party that threatens to destroy Sir Hallam’s career. Dame Eileen Atkins also stars as Sir Hallam's rather "take-charge" mother. Her monkey is hilarious as is she. Clare Foy plays Lady Agnes' naughty little sister Lady Persie.
