Downton Abbey IS Mad Men

I broke into simultaneous tears and laughter in Episode 3 when Gwen's typewriter is discovered and she says, "I want to leave service; I want to be a secretary". The outraged looks and discussion are wonderful and Gwen is great in her self-defence.
These little bits of history are lovely and the fact that her typewriter is viewed as an instrument of the devil is so well-done.
Just as Peggy becomes a copywriter, and Megan aspires to it too.
