[[caption-width-right:350:The "below stairs" characters. Clockwise from left: Mabel, PC Wilson, James, Ivy, Mrs Lipton, Alf.]]



The pilot, broadcast two years before the series properly began, opens with a prologue set during World War I, where a soldier called Alf Stokes (Paul Shane) robs the body of a fallen officer, to the disgust of his reluctant partner in crime James Twelvetrees (Jeffrey Holland). He plans to use the body as a [[HumanShield human shield]] but the officer isn't dead after all: recovering in hospital, the Honourable Teddy Meldrum thanks them for heroically saving his life.

The rest of the below stairs staff comprise Mrs Lipton, the cook, Henry the boot-boy, and Mabel, the charwoman, who's looked down on by the other servants. The family are Teddy's older brother, Lord Meldrum; his mother-in-law, the senile Lady Lavender with an alcohol problem; and his two daughters, Poppy and Cissy, respectively a spoiled flapper and a crossdressing, lesbian aviator and socialist. Other characters appear in almost all episodes, including the local policeman Constable Wilson and Lord Meldrum's mistress, Lady Agatha.

* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Teddy plans to get out of marrying Madge (the employer of his real love, Rose) by letting her believe he's impotent; she has her way with him instead. Although the character seems distressed, it's very much played for laughs.

to:

* DoubleStandard: James gets himself in hot water with Poppy for defending Mrs Lipton against Poppy's criticism, claiming that he couldn't stand to see her humiliated, oblivious to the fact that he and Mrs Lipton are equally are harsh towards Henry, Mabel and (sometimes) Ivy.

* EconomyCast: The servant body is surprisingly small, consisting only of Stokes, James, Ivy, Mrs Lipton, Henry and Mabel. Although the house isn't huge, compared to say Series/DowntonAbbey, you would at least expect there to be more than one maid.
