Who better than an English major from Vassar College with a love of British literature to become the Executive Producer of Masterpiece Theatre? Rebecca Eaton shares with us a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at what it was like to work with the various hosts of Masterpiece, including Alistair Cooke, Vincent Price, Diana Rigg, and Russell Baker. Brilliant actors portrayed include Judy Dench, Maggie Smith, Derek Jacobi, John Thaw, and a nine-year-old Daniel Radcliffe, who starred in David Copperfield and would go on to play Harry Potter. Eaton also relates some of her mistakes, including initially turning down Prime Suspect with Helen Mirren. Still, her successes abound, especially in recent years with the astonishingly well-received Downton Abbey.
