Personal Quotes (3)

I'm not knocking Downton Abbey (2010) - it contains some wonderful acting - but it's anodyne. It doesn't make the viewer ask questions.
Thinking outside the box doesn't really happen nowadays. Something like The Hour (2011) is extremely good, but it is so rare.
Writers and producers today are, in general, out of touch with what people want. The people in charge bugger it up and muck the best writers about.
