Show generally

Corrected entry: None of the characters age the number of years shown in the series. This is particularly noticeable in Lady Sybil who would have been 14 in the first episode, as Mary mentions that she is 21 near the end of season two, yet she does not look any older.

Correction: Sybil was born in 1896, making her 16 in 1912, the year of the first episode. It's not out of the question that she could have been more or less fully matured by then, or at least matured enough that there's not enough maturing left to be done between the ages of 16 and 21 to be noticeable.

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.

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.
