Kingston will play Blanche Mottershead, the younger sister of Dame Eileen Atkins’ Lady Maud Holland. Atkins decided not to take part in the second season of Upstairs Downstairs last year.

Lacy's love of British TV is embarrassingly extensive, but primarily centers around evangelizing all things Doctor Who, and watching as many period dramas as possible.

Digital media type by day, she also has a fairly useless degree in British medieval literature, and dearly loves to talk about dream poetry, liminality and the medieval religious vision.
