The new season of Upstairs-Downstairs is horrible!

I could not believe how bad the first episode of the new season on PBS was. First, they killed off Eileen Atkins in the opening scene of of the show and then spent 20 minutes killing her monkey in graphic detail. I know the producer and writer Heidi Thomas hated Atkins and wanted her off the series. The music was unbelievably bad and sappy - TURN IT OFF and the plot line jumped all over the place and was completely unbelievable. The attempts at humor were embarrassing. I can see why the BBC cancelled this disaster and PBS was reluctant to broadcast it. Poor Jean Marsh, poor Eileen Atkins - you two were raped by Heidi Thomas! Why did Thomas ever want to make this series if she hated the original so much?
