Bridgerton Fans Notice Yellow Parking Lines In Period Drama Blunder

Some Bridgerton fans have spotted a rather interesting historical blunder in Netflix's hugely popular period drama - yellow lines on the road.

The series is set in 1813 and many scenes were filmed around Bath's Royal Crescent.

Although the producers and writes did a fabulous job, eagle-eyed viewers have spotted the yellow parking lines even though the show takes place 140 years before yellow lines were invented.

Yellow lines - as we're sure many drivers know - indicate parking restrictions. They became a feature on British roads in the 1960s.

It seems the small blunder might have stopped the some viewers from becoming invested. One person wrote on Twitter: "I couldn't get into Bridgerton. I got bored and the lighting bothered me, way too bright for a period drama. Also spotting inaccuracies like double yellow lines on the road."

Another person said: "I was requested to watch Bridgerton during a lockdown evening, turned into a 'spot the gaffe' game. 1813 London society, yellow lines, no parking signs, smoking filtered cigarettes, bemused."

A third viewer said: "You will also spot a Primark poster, a single yellow line parking restriction and a parking sign on a lamppost. Down pipes on the front of buildings which would not have been there and a modern day doorbell. Still a great one to watch though"

Some fans defended the show despite the inaccuracies, one person tweeted: "Something wrong with people if they are focusing on the yellow lines on the roads, hidden primark signs and pipe work going down the buildings. Instead of focusing on the pure beauty of The Duke."

Last week Netflix confirmed that Bridgerton has been renewed for a Season 2, with production starting this spring.

Following the monumental success of the show's first season which dropped on the streaming platform on Christmas Day, The second instalment of the steamy period drama is set to focus on Daphne's brother Anthony and his pursuit of a wife.

We can't wait!
