After five seasons and 68 hour-long episodes (only 55 of which were aired in the United States), the saga of Upstairs, Downstairs ended on a doleful note with the final episode, "Whither Shall I Wander?" In the summer of 1930, James Bellamy (Simon Williams) is dead, and the rest of the Bellamy household has been financially devastated by the Wall Street crash of 1929. To pay off James' creditors, it becomes necessary to sell 165 Eaton Place. Though most of the residents are philosophical about their reversal of fortune, Georgina (Lesley-Anne Down) faces an uncertain future, still wondering if she should marry the handsome Marquis of Stockbridge (Anthony Andrews). The final scene finds Rose (Jean Marsh) standing alone in the empty house, quietly and stoically reviewing the past 30 years in her mind. Written by John Hawkesworth, "Whither Shall I Wander" was originally telecast in England on December 21, 1975; most American PBS viewers first saw the episode on May 1, 1977.
