Downton Abbey Fail: What's Wrong With This Picture?

The good folks in charge of the production of “Downton Abbey” have released the above photo in promotion for the show’s upcoming fifth season. Can you spot what’s wrong with the picture?

The above picture shows Robert Crawley and Lady Edith in front of the mantle at the great estate. If you can’t spot the out of time error, it’s after the jump!

ANSWER: It’s the plastic bottle on the mantel! Plastic bottles weren’t used for water or other beverages until 1970, so the period drama made a blast to the future with this photo. We’ll let it slide because “Downton Abbey” is such a fantastic show, but we can’t help but to think that the Dowager Countess would not approve.
