The House of Elliot

blankThe fabulous House of Elliot
The House of Elliot was devised by by Eileen Atkins and Jean Marsh, who had previously come up with the brief for Upstairs, Downstairs.

The series had all the hallmarks of classic costume drama – class struggle, posh frocks and a bit of history – but what made The House of Elliot different was that it moved along at a cracking pace and was scripted like a soap opera. Not surprisingly, it was an instant hit and consistently attracted audiences of over 10 million.

  1. The clothes, hats and shoes in this gorgeous series were amazing and I want to find them to buy for myself! I wonder where I could…sigh! I adored the series and loved all the characters. I’ll watch it over and over again…absolutely brilliant, except I was disappointed by the ending. Was the show cancelled? There were too many loose ends….would love to hear what happened to them.

  2. I love that show! I’ve seen it three times now but haven’t convinced myself to shell out the cash to buy the DVD boxed set. One day!
