Silly Site o' the Day

Sincerest thanks to Colleen Doran for today's Silly Site, Uptown Downstairs Abbey. I love Colleen's description of herself as "yet another American who watches entirely too many of these TV shows about repressed English people"!

Great cast, as so many of these Red Nose Day bits have - narrated by Michael Gambom, featuring Simon Callow as a spot-on Julian Fellows, writer Jennifer Saunders as Dame Maggie Smith, Joanna Lumley as a dissatisfied actress, Harry Enfield as the Earl, directed by Adrien Edmonson (Vyvyan from The Young Ones), and the punch line at the end of Part 2 is only for people who've ever seen How Clean Is Your Home?, which neither Robin nor I have as it was "after his time" in England.
