Factual error: Throughout this series we are treated to a set of the House of Commons. Whilst it's almost accurate in nearly every detail, it misses out one crucial aspect. The set only has 4 rows of seating, the real House of Commons has 5.

Porterhouse Blue picture

Show generally

Factual error: David Jason's character visits the bank to pick up the share certificates left to him by a previous Master. Much to his surprise the bank manager tells him that these shares are now worth £500,000. The bank manager looks at the certificates, then at a screen by his desk before making the calculation very quickly in his head. Given that the certificates are decades old this is impossible. It would take a considerable amount of time to work out the new number of shares that the certificates would entitle the bearer to based on share splits and consolidations over the years. Also, the shares would be denominated in pre-decimal currency so they would have to be revalued based on the conversion rate at the time Britain went decimal. It would be a time consuming and painful task to decide their new value.

Just One of the Guys - S1-E18

Factual error: After Steve practised changing a baby on the stuffed toy monkey he and Danny leave Michelle's bedroom and walk into the hallway. But the bedroom you see them leaving from when in the hallway would historically be Jesse's bedroom at the time. When they are in Michelle's bedroom in the shot previous to the hallway, the hallway from the bedroom also looks as if they are in Jesse's room based on the view.
