House Of Eliott - Series 3

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Eileen Atkins and Jean Marsh, the creators of Upstairs, Downstairs, were also responsible for this early-'90s drama produced for the BBC. Like so many dramatic series that originate across the Atlantic, House of Eliott has about it an air of craft and intelligence that genuinely refreshes. The Brits do period pieces exceptionally well, and as might be expected, this show's Roaring '20s setting is punctiliously re-created with regard to ...

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Eileen Atkins and Jean Marsh, the creators of Upstairs, Downstairs, were also responsible for this early-'90s drama produced for the BBC. Like so many dramatic series that originate across the Atlantic, House of Eliott has about it an air of craft and intelligence that genuinely refreshes. The Brits do period pieces exceptionally well, and as might be expected, this show's Roaring '20s setting is punctiliously re-created with regard to sets, props, hairstyles, and costumes. The latter are more important than usual because House of Eliott takes place in the world of haute couture: After their once-wealthy but profligate father dies and leaves them penniless, sisters Evangeline Louise Lombard and Beatrice Stella Gonet Eliott are forced to fend for themselves. With no real education or practical skills, they make a living off the one thing they know best -- fashion. The sisters open a dress shop that becomes highly successful and restores them to social prominence. With this premise having been firmly established in the show's first two years, Series 3 concentrates on several subplots. Bea becomes the object of a romantic rivalry between her stalwart commercial photographer, Jack Maddox Aden Gillett, and a newly arrived American businessman Mike Fitzpatrick. Later in the year, a political subplot rears its head when Jack runs for office on the Labour Party ticket, only to find his association with the Eliotts used against him when the sisters are accused of exploiting workers. Smaller plot threads involving supporting characters are skillfully woven into the show's fabric, with the result that House of Eliott emerges as unusually compelling -- even to those with little patience for American-made soap operas.

    Very creative and entertaining.

    I recommend this series. It was very enjoyable, the costumes were beautiful and the cast perfect.The story line keeps you wondering what will happen next. The ending was a little abrupt and unless there will be a series four you have to imagine how it will eventually end.
