Yeah, there's reluctance to change with the times and outright hostility to anyone who even slightly threatens his exhaulted place in the social heirarchy. He goes from wanting Matthew to be involved in the running of the manor in S1 to being directly hostile to any of his suggestions in S3, and trying to just ignore problems. It was so out of character for him to be, well, a bad person. Too tied to tradition? Sure. But hateful? And staggeringly dumb?

That was bad. And his wife after a certain major incident (avoiding spoilers) turns into an evil bitch but then reverts back to normal in an instant when the doctor decides to give him cover with a pretty lame story.
I hope they get back to the quality of season one but that seems nearly impossible from where they find themselves now.
