Factual error: Nick tells fellow vampire Aristotle, "You still owe me for that time at the Battle of Hastings." Nick was brought across in 1228, or so the intro told us every week. The Battle of Hastings, as any British school kid knows, was fought in 1066, over 100 years before Nick's mortal birth. (00:29:30)Jean G
Continuity mistake: When Gran and Saffy are are talking to the new best friend at the end of the show the first thing that happens is that a wine glass next to new best friend slides along the table (you see this happen on screen)then it changes from wine to water back to wine.James Warrender
Continuity mistake: Rogue rips off Donald Pierce's cybernetic left arm, but when he is first shown running away, his right arm is the one that is missing. When he catches up with Sebastian Shaw in the secret passageway, his left arm is back to being the one missing. (00:18:30)Phaneron
Continuity mistake: In the 1991 flashback, Jamie is already engaged to Paul and is shown with long hair. However, in the 'Cold Feet' episode, Jamie is shown with short hair. Since the 'Cold Feet' episode was set in February of '91 and the flashback from this episode was set in late March or April of '91, these two episodes don't match up.
Continuity mistake: When the immortal who's trying to kill Tessa snipes at her in Duncan's car, his shot shatters the passenger-side window. When Duncan tails Tessa and her police escort to the safehouse, the passenger-side window is intact. (00:30:05 - 00:35:50)Captain Defenestrator
Revealing mistake: Near the end when Frost calls Pam to warn her about Meadows, she walks in to the hall and picks up the cordless phone. After she's looked out of the window and seen the killer staring at her, she 'does a Kim Bauer' and holds the phone upside down while she continues speaking with Frost. (02:09:00 - 02:10:20)Chimera
Factual error: In many episodes, cars which are said to be owned by a character have a Certificate of Fitness on their windscreen. Private passenger vehicles in New Zealand under 3.5 tonnes have a Warrant of Fitness, not a Certificate of Fitness. This means these cars are most likely rentals.
Character mistake: Near the beginning as the leader is about to set off with the boys, he says, "About face!" and turns to the left, and the boys follow suit. But "About face" means to turn 180°. He should have said "Left face" to get them to turn 90° to the left. (00:04:25)Knever
Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the episode, Hank is re-watching Larry's announcement that he won't be renewing his contract after this season. The video tape that he is watching is sticking out of the VCR, which means it's been ejected and can't be playing. His assistant then comes in and says "This again? I'm taking this tape away from you," and removes it, so we know it wasn't on air or from a different source. (00:00:25)Captain Defenestrator
