Factual error: When Barry dies in the Scottish Highlands, Janine has him cremated. However, she manages to get back to Walford in roughly 4 days, no police force would allow for a body to be cremated 4 days after death, especially with an unknown circumstance of death. Also it would look very suspicious that the widow was so keen to get her husband cremated, slowing the police force down even more.
Revealing: Episode Aired 12th December. In the laundrette a shelf had fallen off the wall and Dot Cotton needed someone to fix it. You could see the wall was false, as every time Dot touched the shelf, the wall was wobbling. Later same episode Martin Fowler fixed the shelf he said something like "the wall will fall down before the shelf does" - very true.
Other: Kate said Lyn could start her training at SophistiKate's Nail Bar on Friday, when she is off, because her assistant needs help. If her assistant was alone on Friday, surely its a bad idea to have a trainee start at the same time. If both workers were in, then one could train Lyn while the other sees to clients, but in the way Kate describes here, her assistant would be busier than before.
