Deliberate mistake: Lindsay is not at Caleb's funeral in the last episode of season 2, "The Dearly Beloved". It's unlikely that she would have missed it - she is still on good terms with him and he is her father, the only reason she left was to be with her mother, not because she didn't love Caleb.Obviously they didn't want to create another drama with having Lindsay there while they had to focus on the important story-lines - Caleb's death, Kirsten's drinking and Marissa shooting Trey.
Deliberate mistake: About halfway through the show, Roz and Daphne are in the kitchen talking. Daphne pours water into the teapot - but there is no steam coming from the kettle, nor any sound of a boiling/just boiled kettle. No self-respecting Brit would make tea with water that wasn't boiling.
Deliberate mistake: The first 10 episodes of Season 5 were shot in a totally different order than they were aired. As a result, Jamie's size during her pregnancy is very inconsistent at the beginning of the season. In particular, she gets much smaller between episode 8 and episode 9 because episode 9 was originally supposed to air earlier in the season.
Deliberate mistake: In Episode 7, "Bad Moon Rising": When Cash meets Sasha at The Haven, she mentions "Eddie and his bodyguards being blown away". But Eddie was not "blown away", he was neatly decapitated, and in addition, none of his bodyguards were killed. Julian specifically said that he would let them live to elect a new leader. Sasha was present, and would know this.Twotall
Deliberate mistake: When Mary gets to the school where she is going to be teaching, all the children are standing outside wearing shoes. However when they come in to the school they are barefoot. I have a feeling this was done to show how poor the community she was teaching in was supposed to be, but it looked like too cold and rainy of a day to let the actors be outside barefoot.
Deliberate mistake: Around the 26 minute mark, when Charles Brandon joins Margaret for a game of cards during their voyage to Portugal, Margaret has a glass of wine (and later Brandon) in which the liquid is not sloshing around As It Should Be on a ship that is rocking and swaying the way it should.

Deliberate mistake: Unavoidable, but still noteworthy: At the beginning of season 2, all the story lines pick up where they left of from at the end of season one; indicating that not much time has elapsed. In spite of this, most of the cast have different haircuts, Dana has grown out her fringe, and Tina suddenly has a baby bump.
Deliberate mistake: After Elizabeth goes upstairs with the pillowcases for Cindy, in the following shots there are a few long shots of Colonel Brunson's car on the road, and a couple of those shots are flipped - noticeable due to identical trees shown the opposite way. (00:03:55)Super Grover
