Enemy Fire - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: In episode 2-4 "The Funk Hole " which takes place in the fall of 1940, Andrew states to Sam that his mother died when he was eight years old. In this episode (Feb to June 1941), Foyle is looking at his wife's grave; it shows his mother died in 1932, which would have meant Andrew was born in 1924, and only 16 in 1940, far too young to be a Spitfire pilot. Also, his commanding officer states "the younger pilots look up to you, Andrew", before one of the "younger" pilots (age 19) is badly burned in a crash in Andrew's plane.

Series 11 Episode 1 - S11-E1

Continuity mistake: During the police car challenge, Richard Hammond is taking his homemade police car around the track on a timed lap (with extra points for flamboyant driving). As he rounds the Hammerhead corner, the makeshift stinger (that's a spike strip for the colonials) on the front of his car breaks off and is left behind. He then drives through a stack of boxes, getting one caught on the remains of the stinger mounting. As he approaches the second-to-last corner, the box has gone and the stinger is now back on the front of the car. In the final shot as his car limps across the finish line, the stinger is once again missing and the box has returned. Clearly footage from a different lap was substituted in. (00:51:10)
