Why Downton is 'perfect' TV: Drama found to consistently come close to formula devised by researchers for the ideal episode
- Researchers calculated a formula for the perfect TV episode – and found Downton Abbey consistently comes closest to the ideal
- 'Perfect' episode is mix of drama, shocks, comedy, action and romance
It goes on to say that the perfect episode was 3.05, which is the episode in which Sybil dies. That, to me, however is easily my least favorite episode. I think I have managed to watch it all the way through only twice.
