Masterpiece: Upstairs Downstairs, II: (3) A Perfect Specimen of Womanhood

Masterpiece Classic

Lady Agnes is becoming more involved with the Women’s League of Health and Beauty, where exercise and equality are stressed. She has taken up a class with the group and urges some of the female staff to join her. Blanche Mottershead becomes mired in a scandal when a torrid novel, published by someone from her past, reveals potential ties to her. Downstairs, Beryl's decision to take a stand causes serious disturbances to the running of the house. This causes much concern for Lady Agnes until A visit with a trusted advisor offers reassurance and comfort. Meanwhile, a crisis is playing out at 165 Eaton Place as Lady Persie and Sir Hallam clash and share an explosive secret. The battle rages between these two strong wills and life changing decisions must be made.
