The Upstairs/Downstairs reboot

It was cancelled after two seasons. They're saying it couldn't compete with Downtown Abbey even thought the two shows were nothing alike. I wish BBC had given it more time. Downton Abbey is an old money fantasy that hides away in a country manor with very little references to any real-world situations or actual function in society. They occasionally reference historical issues but no one really seems connected to them. Upstairs/Downstairs on the other hand, had a politician who was seeing WWII unfold, while messing around with his uptight wife's bad younger sister...and an OUT Lesbian Step-sister ... who all lived in London dealing with day to day realities on the brink of war. Season 2 two ended with London about to be bombed. I would have loved to see this show go into the war. And that Duke was totally gay too. I wonder if they were ever going to explore that.
