Downton Abbey s.1-6

And so, my two-week DT-marathon is now over and has resulted in the following musings on its advantages :

- Systematic and laudable avoidance of stereotypes. 

- Skillful plotwriting, taking its time, stretching a story over several chapters; hinting at things rather letting the cat out of the bag (keeping it "detectably meowing" as I read somewhere).

- Gorgeous settings and costumes.

- Maggie Smith's oneliners.

- That general, undefinable feeling of well-being this series inspires, rendering it absolutely top-notch holiday-viewing.
