    They needed to finish it off with ‘self-made’, and have Enfield’s Loadsamoney character representing the label.

    I like Downton Abbey way more than Upstairs Downstairs… but I guess it’s just a matter of opinion.

    Both this parody and the original series are both something special. However, what ruins this parody are the constant behind the scenes commentaries. People really dont need to know how ‘marvellous’ simon callow is or how the show is made. This was a big mistake French and Saunders used to make which put me off them in the end… Just stick to the parodies and edit in some of the studio audience laughing… (last part optional)

    I love that they managed to parody the ‘behind-the-scenes’ bits as well
