Does anyone know if it will be shown on STV at some point?
I can't believe STV is showing Billy Connelly in the Arctic instead, gah.

If you've got Sky you can get ITV London. Can't remember which Channel but it's pages and pages down in the TV guide.

Gracelo Sun 26-Sep-10 16:15:40

Channel 993, woohoo! Thanks Calticlassie.

Am so looking forward to this.

Polgara2 Sun 26-Sep-10 17:29:34

Oh yes dd1 and I are really looking forward to this. Love the song that's played when it is being advertised - is that the theme tune I wonder?

Wilts Sun 26-Sep-10 17:31:56

I am sadly excited, I love period dramas grin

Polgara2- I love the song on the advert too.

Caoimhe Sun 26-Sep-10 17:45:15

Oh yes, really looking forward to it - love the picture of Maggie Smith looking down her nose with a face that looks like she's had a lemon too many.

<< very, very jealous of Aitch [envy} >>

Finding myself watching old episodes of Upstairs, Downstairs on sky.

The good old days!!!

Tippychoocks Sun 26-Sep-10 17:52:12

Want to watch it but with my XF fetish I will be glued to ITV1 for hours. If I do the ironing though, that will make it OK.

peggotty Sun 26-Sep-10 17:54:46

I love these kind of programmes on a sunday night, I call them Comfy-slippers tv. Nice bath before it starts, jammies on, curtains drawn, glass of red wine - looooovely!! And Maggie Smith is always great.
