Season 5 generally

Factual error: Marigold can not possibly be as big as she is in this season. She's bigger than George, when she would only be a few months old.

Episode #5.7 - S5-E7

Revealing mistake: When Tom and Sibbie are on the bridge dropping sticks into the water, they run to the other side and you can see their movement through the bricks.

A Moorland Holiday - S5-E9

Trivia: We see everyone at Brancaster Castle in Northumberland for the grouse shooting season. Brancaster Castle's real name is Alnwick Castle, which has been used as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films.

Show generally

Question: I understand that the show won the Emmy for Best Made-For-TV Movie or Miniseries. And, yet, the show has had more seasons. Just how do the rules for that category work and what made Downton Abbey eligible to be considered a miniseries?

Answer: Yes, because at the time it was not sure if it would continue and since it was short it could be seen as a miniseries. it also depends on where the producers decide to submit it. However since it continues on it is no longer a miniseries but a full series and thus cannot be submitted in the miniseries category anymore.
