BBC One's hugely anticipated revival of legendary drama Upstairs Downstairs, which was a smash hit with viewers old and new, returns to the famous 165 Easton Square, with six episodes and two stellar additions to the star-studded line-up: Alex Kingston and Kenneth Cranham. Teeming with more passion, scandal and heartbreak than ever before, Upstairs Downstairs Series Two is available on DVD from 23rd April 2012 by 2entertain.

The story, which follows the lives and loves of the Holland family and servants is set 1939 and spans the months leading up to the outbreak of the Second World War. It charts a period of social change in Britain in which class structures and relationships between master and servant are tested to their limits.

Returning as head of the household is Sir Hallam Holland (Ed Stoppard) who finds his diplomatic skills strained to breaking point as Chamberlain negotiates with Hitler. His wife, Lady Agnes (Keeley Hawes) arrives home extremely frail after giving birth to her second child, meanwhile her sister, Lady Persi (Claire Foy) is apparently revelling in fascist Berlin.

Alex Kingston (ER, Doctor Who), will join the cast as Dr Blanche Mottershead, a wonderfully captivating straight speaking spinster, who will, over time, reveal some secrets of her own. And Kenneth Cranham (The Night Watch, Made In Dagenham) takes on the role of Sergeant Ashworth, a police officer who answers an emergency call at 165 Eaton Place. Having fought on the front line in the Great War, he finds Mr Pritchard's past as a conscientious objector appalling and torments him about it, setting off a chain of events which leads to near collapse downstairs.

Other new characters set to cause drama and intrigue the household are Caspar Landry, a charismatic, American, multi-millionaire, who offers her a wealth of hope and possibility in a dark and fearful pre-war London. And Beryl Ballard is the nursery maid who arrives at 165 Eaton Place, harbouring a tragic secret.
