#Quote
1 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.
2 Thinking outside the box doesn't really happen nowadays. Something like The Hour (2011) is extremely good, but it is so rare.
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.
