Bridgerton plot hole: Netflix fans fume as they spot huge historical blunder ‘CGI these!’

Bridgerton: Netflix announce second season of hit show

Netflix series Bridgerton dropped on the streaming on Christmas Day and many viewers binged the whole thing in one go. Although the hit programme is set in the Regency era of the 1800s, it was filmed on-location across the UK which means there are some present-day features visible in the show. And some eagle-eyed fans haven’t been able to keep quiet after spotting one historically inaccurate feature in one part of the series – yellow street lines.

The period drama turned Gossip Girl-style series landed on the streaming service last month and has already been renewed for a second season.

The series fellows Daphne Bridgerton (played by Phoebe Dynevor) as she ventures on the marriage market in Regency London.

Meanwhile, the salacious gossip provided by Lady Whistledown (Julie Walters) threatens to expose some best-kept secrets and lies of the elite. 

Some have recently pointed out a historical blunder they have noticed in the first episode of season one.

Painted single yellow lines are visible in part of the series filmed in Bath’s Royal Crescent. 

The modern-day feature can be seen early on into the show and unfortunately didn’t go unnoticed by everyone. 

Those who noticed the inaccuracy have since taken to Twitter to point it out. 

One shared: “You will also spot a Primark poster, a single yellow line parking restriction and a parking sign on a lamppost. Downpipes on the front of buildings which would not have been there and a modern-day doorbell. Still a great one to watch though #Bridgerton.”

“My sis thought I might enjoy #Bridgerton Less than 4 minutes in, and there are modern streetlights and yellow no standing lines visible on The Crescent if you’re going to spend that sort of money on costume etc, at least CGI these out…” wrote another. (sic)

“Two episodes into #Bridgerton and I’ve so far spotted a single yellow line and a telecoms manhole cover. I didn’t realise the 19th Century Brits were such pioneers…” added a third.

“Really enjoying Bridgerton, but with the technology available to filmmakers these days, a yellow line?” commented another fan.

It’s not the only apparent blunder to have been pointed out, with some spotting “manhole covers” and the hint of a very well-known retailer.

In other parts filmed in Bath, some fans have noted they can see “the side of Primark” in parts of the lavish series. 

One wrote on Twitter: “#Bridgerton is great unless you know Bath and realise they’re filming next to Primark.

“They filmed loads of #Bridgerton in Bath doesn’t seem as romantic when you know there’s a Primark around the corner,” said another.

A third echoed: “Anyone else watching #Bridgerton and going ‘That’s the side of Primark!?’” 

However, the features are barely noticeable in the hit series and don’t take away from the historical themes of the much-loved programme. 

It comes as the hit series, based on the books of Julia Quinn was recently confirmed to be getting a follow-up. 

Netflix wrote on Twitter earlier this month: “Prepare for another social season. Bridgerton shall be back for season 2!”

Filming on the second season is due to start in the spring, meaning a release date of 2022 is likely. 

Bridgerton season 1 can be streamed in full on Netflix now.
