Ow, ow, ow, Upstairs, Downstairs is making Downton Abbey look subtle*, which is some achievement. Though the sudden obsession with brains suggests potential in a zombie crossover. The effing Kennedys? And the vomitous smugness of the whole pre-war plot***.

*Much as I appreciated the asbestos mines**. Occasionally the odd flash sparks through from the first episode of last series, which made it plain the household ran on child labour.

**And I adore the Duke of Kent's screaming campness. He is currently chatting up a young JFK.

***Plot, of course, is putting it generously.

ETA: Bloody Jupiter****? And inventing the Kindertransport? Whilst the worst thing that happened on Kristallnacht was apparently Unity Mitford getting snapped at in a Berlin phonebox

****Which has now turned into "I Vow to Thee My Country" with words, and with children walking forward on a station platform to noble sanctified England. I may throw something.
