BBC’s Around the World in 80 Days startled viewers in the Sunday episode (January 9, 2022) of the historical drama.
Fans took to Twitter after noticing it Phileas Fogg and his accomplices look fresh even with only one key detail.
Despite enjoying the series, BBC viewers questioned a major plot hole after Sunday’s episode (January 9, 2021).
Most on Twitter point out that David Tenant’s Phileas Fogg looks washed, freshly ironed despite having little money or room in a suitcase to store clothes.
“The most amazing thing about #Around the world in 80 days is that the writers expect us to believe that all three characters somehow managed to put on six proper Victorian changes of clothes (each clean and perfectly pressed) in two bags. raw cloth,” commented one Twitter user.
Another added: “Where will all these new and clean clothes come from in #AroundtheWorldin80Days?”
“I thought he lost his bag and clothes, where did the dinner suit come from?” complained a third viewer.
Thankfully for BBC One, other viewers were too invested in the plot to be distracted by the characters’ wardrobes and took to social media to express their satisfaction after Sunday’s screening.
“Continue to love #AroundtheWorldin80Days. Every shot is a treat,” one enthusiastic Twitter user wrote.
“#AroundtheWorldin80Beautiful, lavish sets and amazing performances. The best BBC in ages,” added another.
The third season emphasizes: “great acting, great setting and perfect January tonic.”
