  • I haven't watched this series, but I suspect the answer lies in the British public school system. Same reason why lots of people use surnames in, for example, Harry Potter (Hogwarts is a British public school with magic) or Rumpole of the Bailey (a barrister firm is a British public school for grown-ups).
