In the first episode of The Hour, which was supposed to be the BBC's answer to Mad Men, one of the characters (who is English) refers to "Prime Minister Eden". British people don't say that - you'd say "Eden" or "the Prime Minister", or "the PM". The line was clearly written that way for the foreign market, or people who don't know who Anthony Eden was. To me, that level of inaccuracy showed it wasn't going to be on the level of Mad Men and I didn't watch any more.
