Product Description
With a career spanning over half a century, Beryl Reid was the original national treasure who brought to life such beloved comic characters as Monica and Marlene whilst also giving award winning performances in the Killing of Sister George and Entertaining Mr Sloane.

Living a fairytale existence in the picturesque Honeypot Cottage on the banks of the Thames surrounded by an army of feline friends, Beryl Reid remains one of Britain's favourite eccentrics. But behind the smiles and the laughter, there was sacrifice and sadness which made her one of the most complex but also one of the best loved performers of her time. With contributions from friends, family, co-stars and Beryl's very own personal archive, Roll Out the Beryl tells the true story of Beryl's life beyond the footlights - the comedy and the tragedy.

"UPSTAIRS, DOWNSTAIRS" - Series Two (2012) Retrospective

Series Two endured a good deal of problems before the cast was ready to shoot its six episodes. One, actress Eileen Atkins publicly expressed her unhappiness with her character, Maud Lady Holland, and her decision not to return for the second season. Both Atkins and Jean Marsh had served as co-creators of both the original series and the recent one. Unfortunately, her announcement not only tattered the series' reputation, but also kept viewers away and ruined her long friendship with Marsh. When Atkins dropped out of the series, both Marsh and Thomas raced to find a replacement. In the end, they hired Alex Kingston to portray Dr. Blanche Mottershead, Lady Holland's much younger half-sister and aunt to Sir Hallam Holland. Despite these setbacks, Thomas managed to produce six episodes for this second series. Only Hallam and a few others like his superior Sir Anthony Eden are against the idea of appeasing to the Germans in order to avoid another war - including the former's wife, Lady Agnes Holland. The latter has no problems with supporting her husband's career, but like many others, support the idea of appeasement. Mind you, Lady Agnes is dealing with the difficult birth of a second child and the news that she can longer carry a baby to full confinement. Lady Agnes' younger sister, Lady Persephone Towyn, is still living in Germany, socializing with top-ranking Nazi politicians and military officers. But an unwanted pregnancy and the violence of the forces Lady Persephone to seek help from her sister and brother-in-law to get her back to Britain. Following the death of Maud, Lady Holland. Sir Hallam's aunt - an archaeologist named Dr. Blanche Mottershead - arrives to deal with her half-sister's belongings. When she decides to remain with the Hollands to help raise her mentally challenged niece, Lotte Holland. The second series also began with the arrival of a new servant in the.
