Top 10 mistakes

Genres: Drama

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the episode where Katy, Carl and Todd go to see Badly Drawn Boy in concert, they go to the Rovers after the concert has finished. It's last orders so it must be 11pm. However, in the next scene in Martin's flat (when he is wondering where Katy has got to) the clock on his wall says 8 o'clock.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The night before Steve and Karen's wedding after Steve decides to let his mum invite Ken and Deidre, she walks out the front door, straight past the Barlows. Then, after they finish their dialogue about Tracy, she comes out of the toilet. I couldn't believe it when I saw it.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the programme shown on 11 June 2007, David Platt takes his exam and then sets fire to his exam paper. In the programme on 22 August 2007, he collects his result and gets an A. He could not possibly have got an A, as he set fire to his paper.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Martin's car was parked outside on the episode first broadcast on 15/12/03. It wasn't used at all in the day, but at night when he came to use it, it had moved position outside his house.

Dan Moat

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When Sarah Louise Platt was born it was January 28th, but in 2003, her birthday was celebrated (and was supposed to be) on Sunday 3rd February, the fourth show after her original birth date. Having Sarah's birthday six days after her 'original' birthday can't be compensated for even if the day she was born was wrong [because of broadcast date], as there are always at least 2 episodes every six days.

Dan Moat

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In a recent episode, the Corner shop must have been unlocked all night. Sunita arrived first, then the owner, Dev. Sunita didn't unlock the door before she went in and the only other employee there is Todd, who left home a few scenes later.

Dan Moat

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Episodes 6354 and 6355. When Sally Webster is frantically searching for her daughter Rosie, who is staying at the squat with Craig, between shots Sally's hair changes several times, but more obvious is that in some shots she has a very croaky throat, and in other shots she has no throat problem at all. These scenes were all supposed to be almost in real-time, and certainly in the course of one night.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the episode after Katie kills Tommy, the expression on Tommy's face keeps changing throughout the episode.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: In a recent episode (April 08), Lloyd referred to Steve as Simon during a conversation in the Rovers. Simon happens to be Steve's real name. Oops.

Show generally

Plot hole: Live 50th anniversary episode, aired December 9th 2010 - When Sally is allowed into the rubble to comfort Molly as the firemen attempt to free her, one of them says they'll get Sally a hard hat. But when we see her talking to Molly in the rubble, she has no hard hat on and instead one of the firemen is holding his hand above her head.

Trivia

The famous scene that caused controversy, where Ken grabs Deirdre by the neck after finding out about her and Mike, wasn't in the script, it was an improvisation. William Roache, who plays Ken, thought that Ken's reaction was a bit unrealistic. The director told him to do what he thought Ken's reaction would be, and therefore Ken grabbed Deirdre's throat and slammed her against a wall.
