Photo of the Week

I love Downton Abbey.

I'm a sucker what is essentially a soap opera about English aristocracy in the early part of last century.

But what I love most is the attention to detail; the costumes; the actual homes, er, castles that are used as sets; the old English villages that haven't changed at all and are used as backdrops; the costumes.

I loved this promo picture sent out ahead of the next season of the DA because I loves me some Lord Grantham and Edith Grantham and ... Wait.

WTF is that? 

plastic water bottle on the mantle?

The Dowager Countess will not be amused.

Somewhere out there is a picture of the cast all holding water bottles in front of the fireplace.

The water bottle event was so exciting it even turned up on the BBC!
