Maggie has this quality, of imbuing every line with a wit and dimension it sometimes does not deserve. For a writer, this is an attractive gift in an actor. She also has a unique sense of comedy, based on a somewhat ironic view of real life, making it both funnier and more sad. But perhaps her greatest ability, or at least the one that most intrigues me, is how she can convey deep and powerful emotion, without a trace of sentimentality. She will find, and play, the core truth of a character and if we like, or dislike, her, that’s up to us… I would be lying if I were not to admit that I write for Maggie. I know she can play these women, opinionated and bullying, yet with a strong sense of reality and justice underlying their prejudice. - Julian Fellowes, The Radio Times
