Eye Doctor

Doctor: "You've been sent to us by the Earl of Grantham?"
Anna: "That's right."
Doctor: "Very good. You can leave now."
Episode 1.07

Lord Grantham sends Mrs. Patmore to Moorfields Eye Hospital in London, attended to by then head housemaid Anna Smith for cataract surgery. She is visited by an unnamed doctor who is very matter of fact and promptly tells Anna that she can go. Mrs. Patmore did not fully realise that surgery would be involved, and the terseness of the doctor only increases her anxiety.
