Slight point of order, it's not Victorian, it's Edwardian.  And I think the reason this works for you while other dips into this time period fail is because it's about the END of that era, where those weird rules and restrictions get nullified and a modern, recognizable, and FAIR world starts to emerge.  And the show is able to be about that AND still has a genuine affection for the old ways, so it's sort of balanced in the way it explores it.  Jeeves and Wooster, somewhat similarly, is almost like an ode to the innocence of the era and how it was cut short because of the War.
