Picks and Pans Review: The Return of Upstairs Downstairs

UPDATED 04/18/2011 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 04/18/2011 at 01:00 AM EDT

Three decades before Downtown Abbey there was 165 Eaton Place, the posh address at the heart of Upstairs Downstairs. That grand British import set the standard for master-and-servant soap operas. Now PBS' Masterpiece airs a three-part update (April 10, check local listings). Set on the eve of the 1936 abdication crisis, it has melodramatic bustle and tender affection for its characters-of all classes.
