Uptown Downstairs Abbey


Now then my dears, did you see the rather fabulously funny spoof of Upstairs Downstairs and our beloved Downton Abbey on last nights Comic Relief show?

On a night when I should have been at a gorgeous Neals Yard Remedy party but actually ending up spending the evening soothing a very sick little boy after a catastrophic disaster of the gluten kind at school, I was glad there was light relief of the spoofy period drama kind to be found on TV, and these two short clips staring Jennifer Saunders and Kim Cattrell (to name but a few of the all star cast) made a yukky old night that little bit more bearable…

Come laugh your corsets off…

  1. Totally laughing! Thanks for sharing. My favorite part was when they introduced all the maids – and then when they were acting with "looks".

  2. Thanks so much for this. Loved part two the best. 🙂

  3. Those are brilliant and I love them! I might even be able to get my husband to enjoy them. And KIM is at the end, I adore Kim.
