Some Mothers do

Moving House - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: At the beginning when Frank is directing the vans, we see that one gets its windscreen broken by a ladder from another van. However, the glass breaks just before the ladder touches it.

Christmas '74 - Jessica's First Christmas - S99-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Frank is loading the lorry at the warehouse, he drives the forklift onto the lorry, then the lorry drives off while he and the forklift truck are still on the back. As the lorry pulls away you can see the camera crew on the other side of the road filming the next shot.

Christmas '75 - Learning to Drive - S99-E2

Revealing mistake: When Frank is the pixie in Santa's grotto, a young boy fires something at Frank from his catapult. Although Frank reacts as being hit, the boy doesn't actually fire anything at all.

Christmas '74 - Jessica's First Christmas - S99-E1

Revealing mistake: When the second piece of scenery falls on Frank, it has a tear halfway down and a hole in it that Frank's head goes through. A few seconds earlier, these weren't there. Maybe they were put there to make sure Frank's head went through, or else this is the second take.

Christmas '75 - Learning to Drive - S99-E2

Revealing mistake: When the bottle of wine explodes in the cupboard, just after Frank has shaken it, you can see a pushrod inside the cupoboard pushing the top up.

Christmas '78 - Learning to Fly - S99-E3

Continuity mistake: When Frank first gets into the plane cockpit he leaves the door open - it soon shuts by itself after a camera angle change.

Christmas '75 - Learning to Drive - S99-E2

Visible crew/equipment: Crew members can be seen in the background and behind the trees when Frank is on the roof of the runaway mini when it is on the pavement and knocks the walking stick out of the man's hand.

Christmas '75 - Learning to Drive - S99-E2

Revealing mistake: When the flying saucer crashes down onto the wishing well, it is obvious that the Father Christmas in the saucer is a dummy.

Christmas '75 - Learning to Drive - S99-E2

Revealing mistake: When Frank drives his car into the sea, he and Mr. Hayes escape through the sunroof. You can see that the actor playing Mr. Hayes has been changed to a stuntman as the hairstyle has changed.

Christmas '75 - Learning to Drive - S99-E2

Continuity mistake: Mr. Finney is explaining the mirror signal manouver procedure to Frank during his driving lesson in the white Mini. While they are parked, the shots from inside the car show a line of parked cars behind the white Mini. But when Frank moves off, the shots from outside the car show no cars parked behind the Mini.

Christmas '75 - Learning to Drive - S99-E2

Continuity mistake: Just before Frank's car crashes into the sea, the shots from inside and outside the car do not match. Outside shots show Frank driving in a built up area while inside shots show countryside.

Australia House - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Frank is on the phone taking down the details off his boiler repair job, he is told the address is 26 Upton Down, but the house where Frank does the job is number 24.

Australia House - S3-E6

Visible crew/equipment: Towards the end, just before he gets into his car, a boom mike shadow can be seen on Mr Lewis's jumper.

Christmas '75 - Learning to Drive - S99-E2

Continuity mistake: When the mini goes into the horse box, Frank is on the roof. When it stops, Frank is thrown onto the horse's back. But when the car first goes into the horse box, there is no horse inside it. Also, you can see the ramps put on the tailboard so the car can drive up it. They fall away as the horse box drives off.

Christmas '75 - Learning to Drive - S99-E2

Revealing mistake: Just before the runaway mini goes into the horsebox you can see the stunt man dressed all in black laying down inside the car steering it.

Christmas '75 - Learning to Drive - S99-E2

Continuity mistake: When Frank is taking his driving test in the Hillman Imp, he is driving slowly down a narrow and winding road. He is being followed by the green van, flashing its lights at him, and as the van turns off Frank hears a train hoot, then drives round the barriers at a level crossing. The terrain suddenly changes from a narrow road in the hills, to a wide road on flat land. Then while Frank is driving to the sea, he passes the same parked brown Vauxhall Victor twice.

Wendy House - S3-E2

Other mistake: When Frank, Betty and the insurance assessor are sitting on the sofa, it's obvious that all three actors are trying hard not to laugh when the assessor starts sinking into the sofa.
