New this month Factual error: When Helen tells Laura she's trying to quit all the pills that she takes to deal with Gordon, she starts listing them off. "The Valium, the Diazepam, the Librium..." Valium and Diazepam are the same thing. (Valium's the brand, Diazepam's the generic).

New this month Other mistake: Mr. Smith scans the Mona Lisa and determines that it is genuine from DaVinci's brush strokes. He should have also noticed the words "This is a fake" written in felt tip under the paint, from when The Doctor replaced the Mona Lisa with one of DaVinci's "forgeries" in "City of Death."

Factual error: When Susan is sorting Ruth's things, she finds Gordon's iPhone wrapped in a newspaper from 1994 with her voice-mail to him and realizes he went back in time, where Ruth killed him and took the phone from his corpse. Even if the phone had been turned off, after 16 years idle, the battery would have died long ago, but we see the phone is on with her message waiting.

Other mistake: When The Doctor tells the Atraxi "Oh, you're not the first lot to have come here, there have been so many," one of the monsters shown from their scan of Earth are a group of Ood. Even if in one of their uprisings they attacked the Earth, it would have been in the far future. The Doctor had no encounter with them on Earth, and he knows them to be peaceful, so why would they be amongst the aliens who have threatened the planet? The only Ood who has been to Earth at this point is Ood Sigma, and he didn't come to attack.

Question: Don't remember if this was a movie or TV show I saw, but I remember the husband is some kind of liberal lawyer scared of the fall of society. He has a hidden gun safe in his home office and his wife finds out about it, and forces him to choose between his family and his guns.

Factual error: Lisa is singing "One (Is the Loneliest Number)" and looks up the composer to find out that he "died of a heart attack suffered on Valentine's Day." Although Harry Nilsson DID suffer a massive heart attack on 14 Feb 1993, he didn't die of heart disease until 15 Jan 1994.

The Doctor comes to Nevada in search of "A bowl of chili. The sort you only ever got in an American diner before 1962." During the 1960s, Chasen's Restaurant in Hollywood made a chili that became highly sought-after by celebrities (Elizabeth Taylor had some flown to Rome when she was making "Cleopatra."). Diners started changing their chili recipes in attempts to duplicate Chasen's secret recipe. This is why The Doctor had to go back to the 1950s in search of a bowl of old-fashioned American chili.

Character mistake: When Monk is talking to the cops on the shooting range about the window washer's story, he says that the window washer said he was on the 7th story of the building. But in the press conference Monk saw in the bar, he said he was on the 6th story. Monk isn't likely to forget a detail like that, especially since it's the detail that's bothering him about the story.

Continuity mistake: When Tobias is talking to Michael about joining the Blue Man Group, he walks over to a bowl of fruit and rummages through it. The shot changes and he's rummaging through a bowl of nuts instead. (No time has passed. He's still speaking the same line).
23rd May 2013
Continuity mistake: When Captain Stottlemeyer's car stops, he pulls to the side of the road into a cluster of garbage bags, which are lining the entire road. When Natalie approaches the car, there are only a few bags on the curb next to it and the rest of the street is clean.
21st May 2013
Continuity mistake: When the Captain and Randy are talking in the garage, in the shots over Randy's shoulder, the pad on his guitar strap is over his shoulder. In the shots from behind the captain, the pad is behind his back and can't be seen.
21st May 2013
Plot hole: When Stottlemeyer and the other cops arrive at the recycling center, the patrol car's siren turns on and off. The killer had said to Monk that if he called the cops, he'd kill Natalie. Coming to a hostage situation with the siren going would be a really bad idea.
