K is for Kill: The Tiger Awakes (1) - S2-E8

Visible crew/equipment: Steed is seen driving along with Purdey and Gambit in rural France. The camera was probably mounted on the front passenger side door, pointing in. As they near their destination, the camera pans to reveal a farm house, and as it pans, a professional-looking microphone can be seen sitting on the dashboard.

The Tale of the Big Why - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: When Gambit is just about to shoot off Steed's door handle, the 'marble' column behind him wobbles visibly.

The Midas Touch - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: The yellow Aston Martin DBS that Gambit and Purdey give chase to at 0:09:45 transforms itself into a yellow Audi 100 Coupe at 00:15:00. Also the "P" registration mark (1975-6) on the Aston is incorrect as the marque had been discontinued in 1972.

K is for Kill: The Tiger Awakes (1) - S2-E8

Visible crew/equipment: A Russian solder peers into a Salvation Army hall. In the shot that follows, from his point of view, there's a very obvious studio light on a tripod in shot.

Obsession - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: Our heroes arrive at an RAF base. Purdey hears a loud aircraft noise and looks up to the sky - cut to shot of a fighter jet. For a few frames after the cut, a caption that reads "The Engineer in the RAF" is just visible. It would seem they 'borrowed' some material from an RAF training film. (Indeed, a later shot of shells exploding was obviously taken from a videotaped TV programme, judging by the 'lag' effect caused by the tube camera that would've been used).
