'Downton Abbey' Accused of Historical Costume Errors in Game-Shooting Scenes
According to editors of Shooting Times, the 1920s guns featured on the Christmas show were more 1890s and only loaders wore leather gaiters.
The PBS TV series -- which won six 2011 Emmys, including one for Best Costumes -- has been pestered by homeland criticism of historical errors, including a visible TV antenna and double yellow lines on a road. Not to mention to use of anachronistic modern phrases such as "boyfriend", "get knotted," and "get shafted".
