    Does anyone recall the made for TV movie that was out right before Gosford Park, so was around 2001/2002, and was almost the same as Gosford Park, and based on a book. I liked the TV movie better than Gosford Park (plot/setting essentially the same), but I don't recall the name of the movie. Thanks to anyone who can help!

    Can you remember any other details about it? I assume it was set in a country house - any plot-lines/characters/actors etc?

    Possibly Servants, though that was a series rather than a one-off movie

    Could it have been a Poirot or Marple episode?

    The Grotesque? Had Alan Bates too, with Sting as his evil butler.

    Two long shots but might be worth a look as you like the era!

    Thank you all so much for the replies. I have looked up the movies and/or series suggested, and I think Servants would have been the closest to what I'm thinking of. The timeframe doesn't seem right though...we had moved from the UK to the Netherlands by that point and I'm not sure if we got BBC over there to see the series. And I swore it was a movie versus a series, but again, it was a while back. I thought the movie came out within a few months of Gosford Park; I don't recall which was first, but I like the British version better. I know it focused on the lives of the servants, but seemed more real and less Hollywood than Gosford Park. Does that help??? [We lived in the UK from September 1999-July 2002]
