There’s something not quite right about this new Downton Abbey picture.
The show is set to return to our screens later this year with its fifth series, set in 1924. ITV have revealed some promotional snaps featuring characters from the drama, including this one of Robert Crawley and Lady Edith.
Everything seems very 20s on first glance…but hang on, what’s that on the mantelpiece?
Someone has left a plastic bottle in between the vases on the right-hand side.
Plastic was not created until the mid-20th century because making the material was so expensive, so there’s little chance the Crawleys would have been able to get their hands on any. Still, this doesn’t lessen my excitement at Downton Abbey coming back.
