To staff the house, Agnes turns to a domestic employment agency run by Rose Buck (original series star Jean Marsh), who worked for the family as a parlor maid.

Its many memorable productions include `Upstairs, Downstairs,' `I, Claudius,' 'The Jewel in the Crown,' `House of Cards,' `Poldark' and `Prime Suspect.'
