Wagon Train (1957)

The Mark Miner Story - S5-E8

Factual error: At an 1868 church service, Mark sings "How Great Thou Art." While the tune of this hymn is 19th Century, the English lyrics he's singing weren't composed until the 1920s.

Wagon Train (1957)

The Rex Montana Story - S1-E35

Revealing mistake: When Rex interrupts the poker game, the camera pulls in for a close-up of the lantern - so close that we can see it's illuminated by a big round light bulb.

Continuity mistake: After Cynthia's mother drinks some of Granny's white-lightning tea, the teacup disappears from her hand between shots.

Hawaiian Eye (1959)

The Stanhope Brand - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: After he's dragged behind the horse, MacKenzie's facial abrasions keep changing completely from one scene to the next. And one day later, they've miraculously healed enough to be covered by one little bandage.

Barbary Coast (1975)

The Dawson Marker - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Cash joins Sarah in the carriage, she's holding her suitcase and a kerchief in her lap. She removes the cloth and lets him take the bag. But when the shot cuts to a wider angle, she does this again and he takes the bag from her a second time.

Barbary Coast (1975)

The Dawson Marker - S1-E14

Factual error: Cable refers throughout the episode to "The Civil War." This term was not in use until well after the era in which the series is set. It was known at the time as "The War Between the States," or, in the South, "The War of Northern Aggression."

Barbary Coast (1975)

Barbary Coast (1975)

Show generally

Revealing mistake: The waterfront set always features a blue, cloud-dotted sky, even when the streets are wet from supposed rain. And the clouds are static, never moving or changing, betraying the fact that they're part of a backdrop.

Barbary Coast (1975)

Sharks Eat Sharks - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: Conchita slaps Cash across the left cheek, which he's rubbing as he returns to his office. In the next shot, as he comes through the door, he's rubbing his right cheek instead.

The Forget-Me-Knot - S6-E1

The Avengers (1961)

The Positive Negative Man - S5-E22

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, Dr. Gray works at his drawing board while smoking a cigarette. From one shot to the next, as he looks up at the intruder, the cigarette disappears and he's smoking a pipe instead.

The Avengers (1961)

You Have Just Been Murdered - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: The money boxes Steed is stacking at the end keep changing positions between shots. And though they're supposed to be full of half-penny coins, the ease with which he lifts and carries them makes it obvious that they're empty.

The Avengers (1961)

You Have Just Been Murdered - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When Steed first spies the satchel full of money in Unwen's flat, the bills are stacked flat in horizontal piles. But in the next shot, the currency bundles are vertical and tilted at an angle.

Doc Martin (2004)

On The Edge - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: The ice cream Louisa smacks Martin with moves between shots from the center of his forehead to the right side and back again, changing consistency each time.

The Avengers (1961)

The Danger Makers - S4-E20

Factual error: Major Robinson threatens Steed with a revolver equipped with a silencer. A military officer would certainly know better. Though it's a common movie and TV cliché, it is a glaring error. Revolvers are open-chambered, allowing sound to escape out the back of the barrel - so they can't be silenced. There are rare exceptions if the gun is heavily modified to close the open chamber gap, but that does not apply to the weapon featured here.

The Avengers (1961)

The Danger Makers - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: The cigarette lighter Robinson uses to set the incriminating papers alight disappears from the desk as he makes his phone call.

Nan Allen - S9-E14

Continuity mistake: After the fight at the train depot, Colonel MacKenzie's rumpled ascot straightens and reties itself between shots.

The Virginian (1962)

Hannah - S9-E13

Continuity mistake: The red draperies framing Hannah's train-window flashback do not even vaguely resemble the drapes seen on the same window in every other shot aboard the train.
