Was the Downton Abbey rape scene acceptable TV?

From The Guardian:

Rhiannon found it exciting:  “The drama of this scene made me sit up,”

Bidisha did not: “If you’re a bored man who writes for the TV, include the rape of a woman in your script. It will excite actors and invigorate the show. What a buzz: setting up a brutalised woman and worming around in her pain,”
