Errors and Explanations[]


  • The Gold Napoleon
    • Continuity
  1. When Wilde escapes from the villains he is wearing a beret but in the next shot the beret has completely disappeared. He may have removed it.
  2. The license plate on Sinclair's car reads PPP6H but in the preceding episode it is BS1. He could have arranged for the change of registration.
  • Take Seven
    • Continuity
  1. As Danny and Brett leave Conron's office, Danny puts his arm into the crook of Brett;s. "Why wait until now?" asks Danny, and the shot changes. They're now not linking arms. They advance to the car and the shot changes again. They're now further apart still. Brett probably pulled his arm away, and then moved off.
  • Greensleeves
    • Character error
  1. The pub landlord warns Daniel that the fourth rung from the bottom of the ladder leading to the cellar is missing. However, when Daniel is seen getting to his feet after having 'fallen', the rung in question can clearly be seen in place. It could have been fixed without his knowledge.
  • Angie... Angie
    • Continuity
  1. When they are playing snooker, Angie pots one red ball, leaving at least 3 more reds, before potting the green. He then proceeds to pot all the colours without potting the remaining reds or taking the green out of the pocket to return it to the table. He may not be familiar with the rules of snooker.
