Factual error: When Lady Edith visits a Harley Street doctor his nameplate is shown outside his surgery. His name is prefixed with "Dr." However, one of his post-nominal qualifications is "FRCS."

Raising Hope picture

Don't Vote for This Episode - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: In "Family Secrets" (episode 6) we learn Jimmy was lied to about being allergic to fruit (so he would not eat it all). So since he was a child he never ate fruit because he was told he was allergic to it. But in the season 1 finale there is a 5 year flash back where Jimmy is spending nights in the store dressed as "Drakkar Noir" he is eating apples and bananas - 5 years ago he still thought he was allergic to fruit.

Luther picture

Episode #1.1 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Luther goes to see Zoe and the house is an end terrace with a red door. Later he goes back and it's mid terrace with a black door.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: No, I don't think this is an error. I think the house with the red door is Luther and Zoe's marital home and the house with the black door is Mark's home.
