From the mind of John Hawkesworth, the man behind the original, highly acclaimed "Upstairs, Downstairs". Based on a true story. I remember watching this the first time on VHS. Have been through it 3 times now, and often brought others along for the ride. You'll never want to stop hanging around this bunch of characters, they are so golden. And you'll miss them when they're gone. Louisa is played by Gemma Jones, who was the perfect pick for the central role. This is a woman who stays true to herself and kicks the work out the door every single day. Really impressive what she gets done in the kitchen, and with such archaic methods. She falls in love later on in life and what transpires during this period will stick in your mind forever.
