Starring Dame Eileen Atkins, Jean Marsh, Keeley Hawes, Ed Stoppard, Claire Foy, Anne Reid, Art Malik at al, one of the most loved TV series of all time is brought back to life with this stellar cast in a film full of scandal, romance and intrigue. 1936. The house at 165 Eaton Place has stood empty since the Bellamy family sold it six years earlier. Now the doors are finally flung open by the new owners, diplomat Sir Hallam, his wife Lady Agnes and, back from the Raj, Maude Lady Holland, his mother. With the arrival of Agnes's debutant sister Lady Persie, the sumptuous home is ready to come to life. And who better than Rose, the house's former parlourmaid to recruit the new staff? The new 'downstairs' family is as full of characters as its previous incarnation with the highly strung butler Mr Pritchard, cook Mrs Thackeray, chauffeur Harry Spargo, and a vivacious and spirited young team. Soon the elegant upstairs world and the downstairs staff have built their own secret labyrinth of secrets, lies and scandal as they feel the tremors of royal and political upheaval and the ominous threat of war. With exclusive DVD feature Behind Closed Doors. 180 minute colour film on two DVD discs.
