The Crawley crew has once again found its way out of a soggy situation.

On Saturday, the Downton Abbey cast issued an appropriately cheeky response to water-bottle-gate, after a historically inaccurate promotional photo went viral on Thursday. The rebound is perfectly in keeping with the family's ability to finesse an awkward situation with creativity, nobility – and a dash of humor.

Say this for the Crawleys: They sure know how to hydrate.

Thing is, as this publicity photo to help hype the upcoming season 5 of Downton Abbey all too nakedly displays, for once the noble family has done something wrong – and very publicly.

As picked up by the BBC and several other news outlets worldwide – to say nothing of fans by the thousands – a very modern plastic water bottle perched behind them spoils the otherwise perfect period pose of Robert, Earl of Grantham (Hugh Bonneville), and his daughter, Lady Edith Crawley (Laura Carmichael), as they stand before the grand mantelpiece of the manor.

When last we left Downton Abbey, the Crawley family was teaming up to rescue the Prince of Wales from a royal scandal, while Paul Giamatti was making his first appearance as Cara's boorish brother.

Now, The Hollywood Reporter has a first glimpse at the set of the British drama's upcoming fifth season, currently shooting at England's Highclere Castle.

From the looks of it, the British drama is about to enter its P.G. Wodehouse years, with the ornate finery of the pre-war era giving way to a more casual definition of elegance. (That means tweed. Lots and lots of tweed.)

How seriously do TV viewers take what happens to the Crawleys and those in their sphere on Downton Abbey?

So seriously that, as the series' creator and writer Julian Fellowes recently admitted to PEOPLE, he even gets yelled at "a bit" by members of the public when something they dislike takes place on the show.

SPOILER ALERT: Details of Sunday's broadcast are about to be revealed.
