Turns out that bottle in Downton Abbey promo pics has led to a revamp of what actors are and are not allowed to bring on set. As one anonymous cast member told The Telegraph:

Modern watches and jewelry are out and so even is modern underwear as the danger is apparently too great it could be seen if we bend over. They have relented in the case of prescription glasses and asthma guns, but that's about it.

So in sum, you can take our undies, but you can't take our asthma guns!
