When Upstairs, Downstairs (a popular British drama) ended in 1975, fans were left watching Pauline Collins; Shirley Valentine (Sarah) mourning over a grave. Many assumed, at first, that it was her long time love interest Thomas (John Alderton; Fireman Sam, He Knew He Was Right), and others thought (more like hoped) that it was Sarah’s employer Richard De Brassey. In any case, the well loved on screen couple of Thomas and Sarah (Alderton and Collins were married off screen) remained strong enough after the end of Upstairs, Downstairs to give the pair (the only characters from the show to do so) their own spin off. The show was strong enough to commission a second season which was unfortunately never finished due to a strike.
