In reference to Susan Reimer's commentary ("Our special relationship with 'Downton Abbey,'" Jan. 10), my wife and I were also discussing the reasons why we've been so taken with "Downton Abbey."
In our case, it has nothing to do with any preoccupation with royalty. The fact that all the people in the house, from highest to lowest, treat each other with basic respect and dignity is very appealing, not to mention that it gives us some momentary respite from the cultural cesspool in which we find ourselves at the moment.
