Don’t you just love the way Cora Crawley admonishes? Her tone of voice remains the same! I hope this is true for all seasons (am a bit behind) but from the episodes I’ve observed, the entire series gives you a serene feeling. Even when situations get complex, Cora’s tone of voice has a certain calmness (almost maddening at times!) to it. Other characters too, pull off their witty dialogues in a dignified manner. Very Georgette Heyer like. Ah, the Victorian age; Of the etiquette, by the etiquette and for the etiquette!
