Episode Guide »
The saga continues at 165 Eaton Place with new characters upstairs and down in a three-part sequel to the much-loved MASTERPIECE series from the 1970s. Jean Marsh returns as Rose with a stellar cast including Dame Eileen Atkins (MASTERPIECE CLASSIC "Cranford"), Keeley Hawes (MI-5), Ed Stoppard (MASTERPIECE CLASSIC "Any Human Heart"), Claire Foy (MASTERPIECE CLASSIC "Little Dorrit") and Ellie Kendrick (MASTERPIECE CLASSIC "The Diary of Anne Frank"). Set in 1936, the lives of masters and servants have never been so captivating. Laura Linney hosts. As 1936 comes to a close, 165 Eaton Place is in turmoil: the king is about to abdicate, Agnes (Keeley Hawes) is about to give birth, Persie (Claire Foy) toys with fascism and Sir Hallam (Ed Stoppard) makes a shocking discovery about his past. Jean Marsh and Dame Eileen Atkins also star.
