Season 5 of Downton Abbey doesn’t premiere in the U.S. until Jan. 4, but one promotional picture released today has fans pointing out a glaring error.
Thirsty, anyone? It turns out a plastic water bottle was left on the mantel of a fireplace behind Hugh Bonneville posing as Robert, Earl of Grantham and Laura Carmichael as Lady Edith Crawley.
Plastic water bottles were apparently not around until the 1960s; Downton Abbey’s fifth season is set in 1924. Oops.
We think someone must’ve been parched after a long day of shooting.
