A Moorland Holiday - S5-E9

Corrected entry: Mr Carson says he has "registered" the house in the name of him and Mrs Hughes. Not if this was 1924! The Land Registration Act was introduced in 1925, effective 1 Jan 1926.

Correction: The Land Registration Act of 1925 was just an extension of an already in place land registration system. Land registration was already in effect, starting with the Land Registry Act of 1862. Certainly no mistake that he "registered" the house in 1924.

When Lady Edith visits a Harley Street doctor his nameplate is shown outside his surgery. His name is prefixed with "Dr." However, one of his post-nominal qualifications is "FRCS." As a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, his name should be prefixed with "Mr.", as with all qualified surgeons in the British Isles.



Set in 1924, a set of publicity shots of the Series 5 cast members, new and old, were rolled out, and one shot in particular was quite revealing. Sitting on the mantelpiece behind cast members Hugh Bonneville and Laura Carmichael, who play the Earl of Grantham and Lady Edith, was a modern-day plastic bottle of water.
