On with the Dance


Episode Info

The fifth and final season of Upstairs, Downstairs picked up the saga of the Bellamy household in the summer of 1919. Grieving over the death of his wife Hazel in the flu epidemic, James Bellamy (Simon Williams remains in seclusion at 165 Eaton Place. Meanwhile, Rose (Jean Marsh) comments ruefully on the fact that the house has more servants than necessary, forcing James to make a fateful decision. On a happier note, Richard Bellamy (David Langton) and Virginia (Hannah Gordon) go off on their honeymoon, while Edward (Christopher Beeney) and Daisy (Jacqueline Tong) return from theirs. Written by Alfred Shaughnessy, "On With the Dance" first aired in England on September 7, 1975, and in America on January 16, 1977.
