Blake's 7 (1978)

64 mistakes in season 4

Genres: Adventure, Drama, Sci-fi

Blake - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: Just before Scorpio crashes, Avon grabs Orac and teleports to safety. When they're still aboard the ship, Orac has several wires hanging loose from underneath. When they materialize on the planet, however, all the loose wires are magically repaired and no longer hanging.

Jean G

Headhunter - S4-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When Avon is questioning Muller's wife at Xenon Base, an equipment shadow moves across the top of his head.

Jean G

Assassin - S4-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When Nebrox is relaxing in a chair on Scorpio's flight deck, large bright yellow power cables are visible running from the console behind him and across the set floor to the right of the shot. Maybe they were jump starting the space ship?

Jean G

Warlord - S4-E12

Revealing mistake: A shot of Scorpio en route to Betafarl falls victim to a special effects problem. The camera shooting the model was apparently bumped and shaken, so the ship is suddenly wobbling so badly it's a wonder it can keep a straight course.

Jean G

Power - S4-E2

Deliberate mistake: Because Paul Darrow had turned an ankle while shooting the fight scene with Gunsar, the uninjured Avon is inexplicably limping throughout most of the fight.

Jean G

Headhunter - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: Relative to the white striping on Scorpio's deck, the unconscious Vila changes locations on the floor three times between shots.

Jean G

Headhunter - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: Muller's wife teleports holding her spacesuit gloves with the fingers pointing up. She arrives with them in the same position, but when the shot cuts, they've reversed positions and the fingers are now pointing down.

Jean G

Games - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: While pulling back from Vila's conversation with the gaming computer, the camera apparently runs over a cable. There's a visible jump in the picture and an audible clanking noise.

Jean G

Blake - S4-E13

Revealing mistake: Scorpio is attacked upon entering Gauda Prime's atmosphere. The ship lurches left: everyone leans left and hangs on. The ship lurches right: everyone leans right and hangs on. The ship rolls over a full 360 degrees: no one leans or hangs on, nor do they fall out of their unbelted flight chairs. And oddly, those same chairs that held fast here tip over with ease later, when Avon escapes with Orac.

Jean G

Gold - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: When Dayna and Tarrant find Keeler unconscious, Tarrant's teleport bracelet disappears between shots. It's back a few shots later, though.

Jean G

Power - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: Cato's body moves to a different spot on the floor relative to the unconscious Avon, who also moves. (The two are suddenly much farther apart than before.) Cato's hands also change positions.

Jean G

Rescue - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: The damaged Orac has long loose wires hanging out when Dorian carries it off the ship, but they disappear in the next shot, when he enters the base.

Jean G

Headhunter - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: Muller and Vila have a brief struggle over the teleport console. When Muller grabs at the controls, Vila pulls his hand away, making the teleport lever break off and fall onto the console. It fixes itself again a short time later.

Jean G

Headhunter - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: The headless android falls into a pile of rubble after an explosion, getting up with its red, white & blue striped costume in smudgy tatters. A moment later, its outfit is mended and completely clean. Still later, when the android is walking outside, its costume is dirty and shredded again.

Jean G

Rescue - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: Avon apparently found a hair salon somewhere on the supposedly deserted planet Terminal. Between the time he and his crew were marooned in the previous episode and the events in this one, he's suddenly acquired a spiffy new blow-dry haircut.

Jean G

Warlord - S4-E12

Revealing mistake: A bad effects matte causes one of the two ships approaching Xenon to partially dissolve along the way.

Jean G

Orbit - S4-E11

Character mistake: Whilst brutalising Pinder, Egrorian asks if he can feel his humerus grinding against his radius, but the bones in the forearm are the radius & ulna. The humerus is the single bone from the shoulder to the elbow.

Orbit - S4-E11

Audio problem: Just before Avon reveals Orac is on the shuttle, you can hear his operating noise. If we can hear it, so should Vila.

Orbit - S4-E11

Plot hole: Servalan & Egrorian discover their Orac is a fake when it continues to light up and make noises after the key has been removed. But this makes no sense; the key functions as it should during the demonstration. Even if it's to do with no longer being connected to the real Orac, with the shuttle getting further away it shouldn't function at all.

Orbit - S4-E11

Plot hole: The drama on the crashing shuttle comes from the idea that a speck of Neutron material is super-heavy. Yet in the laboratory, Egrorian states that 8 Neutrons make up the core of the Tachyon Funnel. This would make it so heavy it would probably sink through the entire planet, yet Pinder, Vila & Avon wheel it about like the aluminium prop it is. And if the Neutrons are held in some sort of anti-gravity field, that would require an enormous amount of power, but Pinder uplugs it at Avon's request.

Trivia

It's not every day you can shoot your wife in front of millions of witnesses and get away with it. Klyn, the woman behind the console who sounds the alarm before Avon shoots her, was played by Paul Darrow's real-life wife, Janet Lees Price.
