He probably likes you as you sound like a nice person, but from what you've said about him I think he sounds arrogant. I don't think it's a great idea to get involved with anyone with a drink problem...

After a slow first episode it definitely got a lot better and I thought tonight's episode was great. Rather rushed, such a lot happening, but terrific nevertheless.

The music irritated me at times...

I'm enjoying tonight's episode better than last night's. Much more happening and some very good character development.

That's all very well, but of course it's down to personal opinion what is cliched, stereotypical or contrived. Going by tonight's episode of UD, I don't think it would fall outside that definition of...

Verdict? Nice to look at, but slow and not specially interesting so far. But I'll be watching the next episode as it looks as though it may be something of an improvement.

The Downstairs lot are more interesting than those upstairs. Poor Johnny, not a brilliant new start.

I can't help thinking of Dinnerladies every time I see Anne Reid. I'm almost expecting Stan or Bren to pop up somewhere - or maybe Norman delivering the bread. :D

It has promise, I think, though we'll see how it goes on. And I agree, if good it could be the beginning of a whole new series of Upstairs, Downstairs, rather than just 3 episodes.

Yes, the story in print is much scarier. I love M R James's stories, he was a fantastic writer of ghost stories. As was Sheridan Le Fanu, my other favourite.
